Gender Dysphoria v1.1 removes the confusing pausing in the dialog and fixes some bugs, most notably related to some branches not showing up!

@ella Oh, sorry, I just saw this. Maybe you'd have more luck with the desktop builds? Your browser might be lagging when it loads the audio clips...

In any case, the story is non-linear and disordered, so feeling like you're in the wrong part of the story is definitely part of the experience.

Well, I guess it's submitted to IGF now.

*sweating intensifies*

I wrote a postmortem for Gender Dysphoria talking about my experience using a pay-what-you-want model for a game on itch.

Gender Dysphoria has been updated with full voice acting! Accessibility options have also been added for the visually impaired. Thank you so much for your continued support!

I wrote a retrospective on the cancelled game Access, which I worked on for about four years.

As a Khmer person, hearing about this book on the radio last night was a little surreal and striking for me.

Small update for my skeletons. Most notably, after roughly 4 years of development I have decided to cancel Access. Retrospective coming soon.

crushing depression makes it hard to get things done

I finally finished cutting all the character VO for Gender Dysphoria today. Mental health sure is rough - u - ;;;

All these things are related to who I am as a person, and I feel like I have a lot of work ahead of me to both preserve these records for the future as well as to really understand what has been recorded before I can really make this game in earnest... Well, it will take a while.

My sister will be bringing those cassette tapes from my parent's home so I can digitize them. Suddenly, I feel like there are so many things that I need to digitize before they are lost. Photos, slides, etc. It's a glimpse into a past that has affected who I am and I need to know

One (perhaps seemingly unrelated) thing are the old cassette tapes that I used to listen to in the car as a kid. They're full of Cambodian music that is both beautifully nostalgic to me as well as mysterious. I don't know how my parents got them. I don't know who the artists are.
