Interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the Rainbow Game Jam 2017 games, if you’d like to take a look :)

(Edited 1 time)

So, this was cute and a fun mechanic and I enjoyed matching people up (and I did learn some new flags I hadn't memorised yet), but it doesn't seem to actually explore the gender spectrum? Everyone seems to be pretty binary.

I think a tutorial could have helped me a lot understanding what's the goal of the game (and how to use the heart / strawberries cursor). Also the fact that I should right click a multiple time on the squares / rounds was a bit annoying -  However after that the game was fun with a soft music ! :)

Struggled to understand what I was doing initially. After a while understood that it was about matching up the 'pairs' but as Reign, mentioned, can leave it in a bit of an unsolvable state at times! Nice and relaxing music!

Hiding the flags makes it too easy to accidentally leave the game in an unsolvable state. Since the colours that cover the flags don't seem to mean anything too much guesswork is involved with trying to get a good rating. Would suggest showing the flags at all times and having it simply be a puzzle game.

Thank you for your comment Reign.
Our first idea was that the gameplay be a metaphor to discover what your true gender and feelings. First of all pieces have a color, a random color and then after a specific time, they will be what they are. If you take the piece with the right mouse button and move near other piece that it like, its time goes fast and it discovers the flag faster.
Maybe you are right to show the flags at all times in order to be a good puzzle game.
We will continue to develop Gendertrix and trying your suggest. :)
