dys4ia is no longer available on newgrounds. it can be downloaded at:


dys4ia is an autobiographical game about the period in my life when i started hormone replacement therapy.


Unlike a lot of people here I don't dislike this game because of some hatred of trans people. I dislike this 'game' because it's pseudo intellectual bullshit

Well...at least it's playabe.

Sadly, this is one of the most boring games I've played on Newgrounds in quite some time. There just isn't anything to it. Screens where there are no real obstacles, no choices to make in what you do or how you do it. No real sense of accomplishment. The oddly-colored visuals are nice, however. But the odd blabbering in the background gets annoying quickly. Also, the whole thing is rather confusing. What was your purpose in taking the hormones? What was wrong to begin with? What are you trying to attain, and what kind of hormone therapy was it? Not everyone knows those things off the top of their heads. Indeed, it seems like most people know little about different types of hormone therapy. The game should have at least explained it a bit.

Not much of a game per se, more like artistic storytelling using gaming language. This is one of those games that I truly wanted to like, the subject is very refreshing and the personal aspect it dwelves into gives some depth to the whole experience, but, sadly, it feels like a game for people who don't care that much about games, and frankly, if feels a little rushed and too much preoccupied with itself and the grandiosity of the gesture of share rather than give a truly remarkable take on the subject matter. Feels a little hollow to me.

Game play was terrible. Graphics are worse.
The story and the way the story was told is good.
I also hope this helps some people going through similar problems.
