This is a very cool backdrop for an essay and I love the slightly purple prose! With the short staccato of bitsy dialogs, it definitely feels like something an agora philosopher is shouting at you, which is *chef's kiss*. The music and aesthetic are also just great.

This is a really honest grapple with dysphoria! I loved the sentimentalist connections between your clothes and your identity; I haven't seen clothes characterized like that in trans media but it's absolutely how I think of some of my wardrobe pieces! <3

I played The Trans Zone as I was just starting to come out and it helped me understand a lot of things I had been struggling with: It addressed the gatekeeping in trans spaces that had always kept me from seeking community, and seeing transition/hormone effects laid out as a tongue-in-cheek skill tree system gave me a new framework to think about the conflicting feelings I had between my nonbinariness and my very binary gender dysphoria.

Thank you so much for putting together this beautiful, ugly, garish, understated, wry, empathetic game!

Thank you! I am not a person who really knows anything about poetry, so I was pretty embarrassed to post this and it's nice to hear positive feedback. <3

This game is amazing! It has a fascinating mechanical depth to it that reminds me of the Golden Sun series-- equipment and mid-battle buffs change your characters' abilities on a fundamental level-- and different enemy types really do force you to learn new approaches, since they themselves have very different strategies and you can't just power level past them. The art's simplicity is also deceptive, it's all extremely well-meshed and there's a lot more detail than you can see at first.

I'm not far enough in the story to give any opinion on the writing, which has so far been rather bare-bones and out of the way, but I hadn't seen any positive comments  yet so I wanted to be sure to share. It's already the best thing I've seen to come out of RPG Maker.

Thank you! I finished the game this afternoon, and I'm not sure I've ever played anything that hit closer to home.

This game is punching me right in my father-fearing egg memories, but I think I accidentally missed some stuff on Day 1, and I want to restart, but can't figure out how. (I even deleted the entire game directory and reinstalled, but I'm still on Thursday.) Where are the save files located? (Windows user.)
