About the Story
A folktale about, among other things, a sentient restroom and a trans woman surviving in a magical city. Pay what you want--all proceeds are donated to the Transgender Law Center, an organization that "works to change law, policy and attitudes so that all people can live safely, authentically, and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression."

This game was inspired by the debates in America surrounding the law passed in North Carolina restricting transgender individuals from using bathrooms besides those of their biological gender.
This game isn't really an allegory, as exactly the same things are happening in this world as in ours. Rather, it reframes the discussion using fantasy techniques to give events a greater emotional impact.
I played through one branch to the end, and rewound a bit to get three different endings. The Twine styling and coding was beautiful, with links represented by +'s for links that furthered the study and *'s used for asides.
It took less than 25 minutes for me. The interactivity was interesting, because it spells out the consequences of your choices in an in-game way.
Fans of DeNiro's other works or of topical commentary will appreciate this game.
