This week on the Queer Ontario Think Tank, we have anna anthropy’s “Dys4ia”.
(Note: this item contains articulations of gender dysphoria, and flashing colours. Ignore the advertisement in the centre square).
Says anna about the project:
Dys4ia is an autobiographical game about the period in my life when i started hormone replacement therapy. It’s a story about me, and is certainly not meant to represent the experience of every trans person.
.The game is comprised of four chapters – “Gender Bullshit”, “Medical Bullshit”, “Hormonal Bullshit”, and “It Gets Better?” – each with a series of tasks that vividly highlight the barriers and experiences anna had to go through during this process.
Says anna about herself:
anna anthropy is a very intense, meaningful kind of gaze that two people can share, but not lightly. she lives in oakland, california with her submissive and their two mischievous cats. she enjoys long walks on bad girls and making videogames. her first book, RISE OF THE VIDEOGAME ZINESTERS, can help you make videogames too, if you’d like to do that.
anna’s blog and portfolio of games can be found at http://www.auntiepixelante.com.
The soundtrack, created by Liz Ryerson, can be downloaded at http://ellaguro.bandcamp.com/album/dys4ia-soundtrack
