=== ABOUT ===
This was only made for fun as a response to a tumblr post, don't take it too seriously.
Please keep an open mind while playing. Thank you.

Also I would like to note that this is in no way meant to insult cis people in general, I'm sorry for giving that impression and apologize to anyone that might have felt insulted.
If you are hateful against transgender people or any other group, please feel insulted.

If you have any suggestions or ideas for improvement, please let me know.

For added fun while playing: Be transgender.

Found this game strangely cathartic. Gets a little bit repetitive after a little while but it's a genuinely interesting concept and a good way to relieve stress related to dysphoria.

Its, more or less.. kinda... um...
The robot asked me and I said I'm a boy and then he said "you didn't look like a boy for me" and gived me a female character.ยด
So I was like "ok, then I'm a female I guess?", but then the game said "shoot the false pronoums" and I was like "what the hell I am?".
Player can't represent me on the game and I can't reincarnate the player cause I don't event know that it is. I'm an alien, a teddy bear or something?
Then I go back to menu and the robot asked me agand, so I said this time girl.
It apeared the same player character and now the words are "gay", "homo", "maggot"...
So, now I'm not only a guy, I'm also gay?

I advance futher but the gameplay is the same and still didn't get what backstory means :\

I do think this is a great game, but it is pretty unpleasant to have to play through levels of misgendering *myself* (a nonbinary person) to get to a level where I can pick my gender. I'm masculine-leaning so it could be worse, but still, it sucks. If you could *possibly* go back and add in enbies, it'd be really great. Ideally, it'd be possible to select boy/girl/enby, and then to check off if you like masc, fem, and/or neutral terms.

Amusing take on a classic type of game. Any clues on the secret medals?

Being able to shoot down wrong pronouns was weirdly relaxing. Thank you for this experience.
