Do you think if I showed this to a child, they'd learn to hate disabled people?
Well, I played this a while back, and replayed it recently, and while I haven't felt angry at crippled people for their problems, this does make me hate hack game developers who sacrifice a game to make a cliche, poorly done "message". I've seen this sort of thing before. It's a Ludum Dare game, with pixel art, and it's a side-scroller, with one-hit deaths. There's some terribly-done mechanic the game is focused around, and character designs made by people almost as unoriginal as Hollywood itself.
Look, I'm keeping this short, because I've said these things many times before, and the only real way to convey just how terrible this game is would be showing the amount of times I yelled "fuck this game" while playing it.
This would be 0.5/5 normally, but the sex slavery stuff being handled with the care I'd expect from a fucking 7-year old after being smacked in the head several times dropped it down to a zero. Shame on you for putting that trash in this... trash.
This was both a waste of my time, and a waste of an interesting concept.
Oh, and by the way? Put a pause button on your trash before releasing it. The game is artificially lengthened by "fake difficulty", as its called, so I'd like to have a moment to breathe before delving into this "game" again.
This game's only accomplishment is that it made me hate spastic people.
As much as I like this game, it's way too hard to appreciate the "disabled" aspect when the game is nearly impossible with fucking illiteracy. I genuinely feel sorrow for anyone who got literally anything else and for sure failed every try. Overall, great idea, but it's way too hard for a normal person to play.
"The Dark side" wanted to take over.. smash computer & press zero stars - but no..
.. Game is really good.. and i really appriciate - that music..
Grafic is pretty nice (by me - a lot of pixelated games.. are mostly much better that our "new productions" with "incredible grafic" ... but no story or great gameplay) ..
.. That one - is pretty good..
Let's get the obvious out of the way: You Are Disabled is not a "fun" game. By this I mean the principal emotion/idea that this game tries to convey isn't "fun" and if that's what you are looking for then this game will not be for you. It also isn't always particularly "fair" particularly with the spastic disability.
What it is is an excellent look at what being disabled means. The frustration and anger you feel really hammer home how terrible certain individuals have it. And for that this game gets a 5/5 from me.
Sidenote: I was frustrated with one of the spastic levels when I got called to dinner. When I came back, I noticed that my character wasn't in the right level. I know that before when this happened after some idle time it usually meant my character moved left so my immediate reaction was to curse a little. However, I noticed after a minute or two that my character wasn't on-screen. With some experimenting, I realized he was above the level a la Mario 1-2. Intentional cheat or bug?
