Dys4ia: a short indie game about being transgender

Over on NewGrounds, there’s a a short autobiographical game by Auntie Pixellante called Dys4ia. It’s a pixelly, Flash-based WarioWare-style game, played only with the arrow keys, chronicling the experiences of a trans woman in rectifying her own dysphoria.


I don’t want to spoil it overly much. It’s short, not difficult (except maybe emotionally), and well worth your time. Go play it.

    anna anthropy also made lesbian spider queens of mars; which while not really serious, is very fun


    triad is also a nice short game, but i suck at puzzles so i dunno how that goes

    That was instructive and depressing. I’ll be sharing it. Thanks for passing it this way.

    Played it before, but I just played it again. And yes, there is a shit lot of bullshit in transition, believe me.
