Tackling Sexual Identity in Computer Games

I’ve been lingering over this post for weeks now. A few months ago I was blown away by a tiny little online game that deals with sexuality in a novel way. The creator Anna Anthropy put her experiences of entering hormone therapy into a digital poem and launched it on a games site. I kept putting off posting the link, thinking it needs more of a write up before I present the game to you, but really, this is all you need to know. Spend a few minutes on this and if anything marvel on the novel ways we’re discovering of expressing ourselves.
