About the StorySince ancient times, the wise men explained to you, young warriors have learned to subjugate the Other in order to become men. To face what they should despise, in order to become what they must be. That's great, and all, you think, but... where does that leave YOU?
A fantasy exploration game, in more ways than one. Go out alone at night, face monsters and wear stuff you find in the trash!

A multimedia Twine game about body identity, February 3, 2016
It's something of an rpg, with two stats (wolf and stealth) and a variety of items and battles that affect the stats. However, the system is very simple, so you don't have to grind and battles are finished in one click.
The two stats represent two ways of dealing with your feelings, most likely about transgenderism. Wolf stats make you fierce, and you wear stilettos. Shadow let's you hide from the world.
Overall, a well done game, if a bit heavy-handed at times. It has a very annoying habit of putting stealth related text as black on black text.
