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


Good for you that you're becoming what you are on the inside. BUT- don't get mad when people assume what your gender is by your outside. After all, that's all anyone has to go on. I am a guy, but sometimes people mistake me for a girl (usually in photos, no idea why.) I don't really get butthurt over it, because I know better. Good art game.

Meh. Wasn't even really a game. Would've been more entertaining as a five sentence blog post.

I actually agree with SeelkadoomPL to an extent. This felt more like interactive modern "art" than a game. I'm not putting down your experiences, or the way you convey them (I actually liked the pixely art style in some areas, I also found lots of the ways you conveyed certain scenes as creative), but as a game, this just doesn't really cut it. Aside from the tiny little interactive parts, I felt like this would've fared much better as a movie than a game. I feel like McMillen has the perfect blend: interesting art/story along with strong gameplay. Again, I'm not against your story, or the way the art was portrayed, but how it fared as a "game", since you did label it so.

This is a very bad game. A series of minigames is not fun. The visuals weren't anywhere near original. At least the music was somewhat nice.

And to quote another reviewer, "pretentious hipster bullshit".


I'm indifferent to your problems. Maybe the message was interesting, but the game wasn't.
Not very fun, and no matter how other people describe a game, I'm calling it a waste of my time.
