To be honest, i'd love to see this turn into something a little larger! 

I can understand why it's pretty short, though. It's a short game built for a gamejam, so there's not a huge timeslot to fill due to deadlines, and it's tougher to focus on multiple things. While all the things said, and that happen, ARE real things that happened, i feel like it'd have been really neat it if it more focused on the psychological side of things. However, in this kinda timeslot, that'd be tough. There's only one real part where you're outside, and it's gotta dig the real transphobia [and not just the internal judgement/anxiety] in SOMEhow, but in this kinda timeslot it's hard to focus on multiple things. Btw by psychological i more meant like these kinds of things; Are they judging me? Why are they looking at me? Are they looking at me? Do i not look good enough? 

And those kinds of thoughts, mixed in with the things that actually happen to create that tipping point where it's just... too much. Like... when you're in a shopping mall or something, not EVERYONE will comment on it. They usually won't have the balls. It's psychological. You feel like everyone's staring at you. I get that myself already, and i'm not even transitioning. And it'd have been awesome and even more meaningful to me to see a little more of that public anxiety represented!

Overall though, i'd love to see this turn into a more fleshed out story! See her find friends she deserves, people that care about her, see her struggle in different situations but come out of it stronger- like getting a job, or trying to socialise more, etc etc. I wanna see her evolve and grow! And getting to see her change slowly over the game would be a huge feelsgood moment, and a really impressive piece of visual storytelling overall.

But for what it was, this was a cute- if heart-sinking- neat little experience that hit closer to home than it really had any right to. Well done, and thank you for making this. <333
