I'm a trans man and I've always had the feeling that I killed my previous self and took over her body, so this was incredibly cathartic for me
ough this is so eerie and SO intriguing, the imagery and writing is gorgeous!!
what an experience!! this game, especially the writing, has such a visceral, cathartic feel to it. I really love the use of art and color in this, it worked with the narrative beautifully. i played through both endings and both were so vivid and meaningful. love all the layers and room for interpretation here, really great stuff!
Absolutely fantastic writing that really gets into the mindspace (literally) of what it's like to face a crisis of self. The buildup of tension is superb, the graphics give the immersion so much more depth (especially near the end), and the words that you can choose to show the deeper meaning behind everything are perfect. Loving what you have created here!
Awesome horror work.
Genuinely, after going through this, I feel like we need more trans based horror. Coming from a transmasc guy who loves horror, this feels like so much potential. Maybe it's just me, but I feel like the true ending is a dream or fantasy for an easier way to transition. Cliche yes, but as someone who's had occasional shapeshifter dreams that I vaguely remember, I could definitely see it.
(Sidenote do not trust the shapeshifter dreams. They will likely give you gender pain.)
i agree!! this particular work was heavily inspired by other queer body horror, which is definitely a growing genre. if you're looking for more trans horror games, i would recommend we know the devil, winter (not quite horror imo, but very good), and SABBAT (a bit more fun and tongue-in-cheek), and for queer horror books, i would recommend tell me i'm worthless by alison rumfitt, her body and other parties by carmen maria machado, and our wives under the sea by julia armfield. i can't wait to see more come out in the next few years! <3
Wow, that is really good! I'm still processing my thought but wanted to give my compliments.
This is a great game but I'm so confused on the story. I'm not sure which interpretation is right lol.
any interpretation is right! it's deliberately vague so you can think about it however feels best to you - and if it's confusing, then that's fine too. is the girl in the right? is the narrator? are either of them? does she actually want this the way the narrator implies, or are they unreliable? etc. it's up to you! thank you for playing :))
i like this , the story is perfect
Great art and a well paced story, nice work!
Damn that was disturbing, congrats on the game
Playing through this, I was rather mesmerized. Absolutely wonderful as an aesthetic piece; the backgrounds and artwork are killer, to be blunt. The writing as well is wonderful, brutal and merciless while having this erotic pulse running through it that just drives me crazy. So fucking good.
wow this really fucked me up (complimentary). fantastic art and amazing pacing, great title, really engaging amount of interactivity too.
Truly stunning. Visceral and wonderful and terrible. Gut Wrenching.
Thank you so much for sharing this.
Incredible stuff. Love the dynamic of how the two primary characters diverge, but also overlap in subtle ways too. The slowly building tension is well paced. And the graphics sold the vibe incredibly well.
i loved this!!!
HELLO???? this game fucking slaps i love it so much. it's so hot!! everyone should play it.
Ellis, holy shit. Everything about this was immaculate-- the gritty backgrounds, the lovingly drawn key visuals, and the STORY. You had me at the edge of my seat at every turn. This game was well worth the wait. Truly incredible work!!!
