A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

"having a gender identity (=feeling of being a particular gender) that is not simply male or female"
from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary & Thesaurus

For just a few minutes, step into the shoes of a nonbinary afab person. Go on a date, talk and talk and... well, you'll see what happens.

Based on real life experiences from an actual, breathing and talking nonbinary person. Made in just two days (because real life just keeps on going and there's never enough time for anything) for the Rainbow Game Jam 2019. Fair warning, it doesn't exactly stick to this year's theme - it's based on an idea that I came up with a while ago and just now had a good opportunity to use. It is very much queer, though.

Two possible endings available, best experienced with sound on.

I'm blind it took me 2 years to learn how to use my devices independently. I love gaming but often there's not any or many accessible games I can find and play. I was just wondering since it doesn't say anywhere if there's  accessibility options on the game after you download it? 100% OK if there's not but I just wanted to ask before downloading. Even if it's not accessible I'll look for a let's play of it on YouTube so I can experience it that way as well. The game sounds amazing and I definitely do want to play or experience it in some way. Please reply when you can. Thank You!

Just played this and liked it a lot. The art choices really sold the mood.

It doesn't map 1 to 1 for my nonbinary experience but the central conceit about whether you let things slide hits uhhh very close to home.

I recorded my playthrough if you want to check it out. But I would definitely recommend anyone reading to play it themself as it takes under 10 minutes!

This is one of my new favorite visual novels, despite only being about 10 minutes long. It has exactly one thing to convey, and it does it brilliantly. Nothing is wasted - the sound and visuals all speak to how it feels when others find your lived reality to be inconvenient or awkward.


As a non-binary person, I know how these 2 endings feel.

I don't like to correct people very much (I get very scared of it because of judgement)

And I also want to be used by the right pronouns.

So, overall, I'd recommend this game.

A free, very short story with two endings that pack an emotional punch. You play as a non-binary AFAB person  on a date with a woman. The writing is painfully true to life - undoubtedly because it's #OwnVoices. Content warning: misgendering. 5/5 stars - outstanding.


just played through the 2 endings, this is amazing. thank you for this. i really related to it, i really needed it. 

the art is wonderful and the way the colours spilled out and the surroundings became less recognizable is just fantastic. i adore the way the mood shifted from content to eerie,, and her laugh. the way you used the music and everything to set the mood so wonderfully was genuinely amazing !! thank you for such a great game


Thank you so much for playing!! It means a lot that you enjoyed the experience and related to it as well! I have to admit that the laugh is probably one of my favorite additions to the whole thing so I'm glad you brought it up as well. Again, thank /you/!
