=== 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.

Pretty cool, add a level selection or something like that, also I'd like the whole screen (or at least most of it) to play instead of a little box. Overall good game, 4.5/5 for small things. P.S. Add a little more variety to the levels

I loved the game. As someone who struggles with social dysphoria, it's nice to sit down and blast all of the incorrect pronouns I've had thrown at me all day.

In the line of constructive criticism, I think it would fantastic if there was a way to collect points for fixing the incorrect pronouns (ie being able to collect the "he" that comes from shooting off the s). It would also be dynamite if there was a way to fight back against the pronoun downpour. I'm not sure how you programmed it so I'm not sure how easy those changes would be to make. I also can't seem to figure out how to navigate back to the main menu after the story mode high score page. It would also be great if non-binary was an option rather than an award but then again, there are very few things where non-binary is an option.

I thought this was a pretty cool game. The levels seem to be the right length, and so does the game. It's just challenging enough not to get bored with, while still conveying the message. I did run into one major glitch that could totally ruin the message you're trying to convey. While playing as a MtF, when I died and continued (retried, whatever), it restarted me as a FtM. TThus, I ended up shooting down the pronouns I wanted to be called, and collecting the ones I wanted to avoid. If you could give that a look, it could definitely improve the quality of your game.

Okay, fixed it, thank you a lot!
I don't know how I missed that.

"Are you a boy? Or are you a girl?"

Well, the game is about dysphoria, I supposeā€¦

I signed up for an account just to leave a review. This game is really well-done. The faux-retro aesthetic is cleverly implemented, and it's fun and cute to play.

The only problem I really have is that the words you have to dodge and collect are universally referred to as "pronouns". Pronouns are words like he/she/they, words that replace nouns in speech. Woman, man, homo, lesbian, tomboy, etc. are all nouns.
