Dys4ia is a great example of a serious game covering a topic that needs to be talked about more. In this game, you go through bursts of different kinds of gameplay while learning about the struggles trans women go through. This game is not the end all be all of what all trans women go through, but the experience of specifically the creator of this game, as every trans person’s experience is different.

As you play, you see how she deals with her dysphoria, doctors, taking hormones, and her own self confidence. The game combines quick mini-games and text to get her struggles across. The fact that the game is broken down into fast mini-game segments makes it easier to give the player more information as well as hold their attention. I think it’s a great game to help inform people who are not part of the trans community.
