Play this: 'Dys4ia'

New, 11 comments

Dys4ia is a deeply personal, moving tale based on the designer's experience of hormone replacement therapy


With Dys4ia, game designer Anna Anthropy casts traditional game mechanics aside to focus on her time undergoing hormone replacement therapy. It's a far cry from Redder, which we implored you to play yesterday, but is equally deserving of your attention. The former Besties award winner consists of four chapters of Warioware-style vignettes which guide you through her innermost feelings and frustrations. The result is an effortlessly engaging narrative that manages to move you without ever feeling overwhelming. Dys4ia opens an autobiographical door to subject material that very few of us will experience firsthand, and you can play it now for free over at Newgrounds.
