A tiny bit of background about me: I turn 30 tomorrow. A close friend from our neighborhood died last month. Yep, I've been thinking about life and death a lot lately. This game is an expression of my recent thoughts and feelings.
Gravitation explores how a particular corner of my life feels, as only a game can.
Dys4ia is an autobiographical flash game created by Anna Anthropy, a freelance scratchware game creator, based on her experiences with hormone replacement therapy and changing gender. (...) The game riffs off 1980s 8-bit video games with little exercises for the player to try out, ranging from Pong to mazes. It's all done in chunky Atari-style pixels. But it feels more like experiential art than playing a game. Anthopy recreates some of the frustrations she experienced, allowing the player to experience a simulation or approximation of what she went through. She often makes the various exercises difficult, sometimes even apparently unsolvable.
“dys4ia is the story of the last six months of my life: when i made the decision to start hormone replacement therapy and began taking estrogen. i wanted to catalog all the frustrations of the experience and maybe create an “it gets better” for other trans women. when i started working on the game, though, i didn’t know whether it did get better. i was in the middle of the shit detailed in level 3 of the game, and at the time i had no idea what the ending would be; it was hard to envision a happy ending.”
A prequel to The Company of Myself about habits and addictions. Rather dialogue-heavy.

Very poetic. Frankly once again a nice little piece that makes the 'player' analyze their life, while seeing another's viewpoint that could be very similar to their own.
Cois is an experimental "autobiographical" game that plays out more like a song or painting then an actual "game".
