Maaaaaan I really loved this game! I'm a transmasculine person but there are parts here that are just common to the whole trans experience and I found myself really relating and sympathizing with the characters. The depictions of mental health felt extremely realistic as someone with a bundle of issues that include the ones discussed here, and oddly I saw a lot of my BPD symptoms in Laina, specially her fear of abandonment and emotional intensity. This was a amazing read and I'm excited to see your future works!
can you say my name again
- This game is about anxiety. This game is about getting intimate and having sex. And above all, this game is about being a trans lesbian.
- Kinetic Twine, 14,000 words. Made in two months for Yuri Game Jam 2017. This is the biggest game I've done so far! I hope you enjoy it.
- Includes glitchy aesthetic images to go with the story.
- This game is nsfw as it includes sex, I would consider it to be queer erotica and not porn, though.
- Content warnings are included on the first page of the game.
- Includes an optional 4$ artbook that has 19 pages of me writing about my game and showing all the art I drew during the months I've been making the game. Contains a generous amount of cute nsfw art.
- Short synopsis:
Pisti gets kicked out of her home for being trans and Laina ends up taking her in even though she was anxious about it in the beginning. This game is about how their relationship develops and how they bond through their identity and depression.

Absolutely amazingly cute and gay as hell!
This game is really nice, I really appreciated the chance to play it. It could've gone on forever and I would've kept reading!
i love this :,)
the cuddling felt so real...
and just... >_<
thank u for making this, it was very lovely to read <3
(i read this while high and listening to the tron legacy score hehe)
Laina was so relatable, and their relationship was so cute. I love this so much
Really cute story & great visuals! 10/10
Super cute story! I have to agree with some of the other comments that the writing was very immersive! The songs went with it wonderfully, as well! As a trans person, this really captures the experience pretty well. Touches on a few of the issues, as well as the sort of dumb jokes a lot of trans folk make. Lovely story!
This was a great read I loved it. Reading it with my girlfriend (fiance is everthing goes well in the near future!) was a great bonding moment. I've no complains about it. great 10/10 ❤
i wish there was more content of them,, they truly are the cutest couple >_> (great writing btw it was really immersive and the characters felt genuine!)
I needed this. Thank you! I mean it!
how is this so wholesome and hot at the same time i love it
Ive played a lot of games like this, but out of the thousands, this. is. amazing! Keep it up!
hello, king of idiots here, i don't know how to get this working cause it only show me a gz file i can't open
I enjoyed this wholeheartedly
OMG this was sooooo cuteee!!!!
when youre abrosexual abroromantic and your gay heart explodes
I really loved it and I love it even more because I'm also a trans lesbian.
played it out of boredom, yet i really liked it
the atmosphere is hella cute, the characters feel real and overall it looks like a game that has effort put in it
My little gay heart exploded and Im only a few minutes in
And being non-binary with bad anxiety and abandonment issues, this story resonates with me on a large level
beautiful and candid game!!
I know i've already bought the comic and told you how much this meant to me then, but i wanna say thanks again, for helping me literally beat the blockade/sadness that kept me from being happy and pushing forwards as a trans gal ~20 months ago <3
I loved the aesthetics and the intimate trans vibes that the whole story transmits. Thank you so much for this game ♥
this was cute. :) i also liked that you included a soundtrack.
This story really got me. I'm not a trans person, but always suffered with reason-less anxiety and fear of abandonment. A lot of friend have gone from my life space, so Laina's feelings made me cry several times. I just finish reading 2 chapters first so willing to write a new comment when I finish playing then.
oh gosh, this game was wonderful. i really wanna cosplay Laina now, haha!
Legit made me cry, but in a good way. Thank you for making this.
This made me more flustered than any game I've ever played (in a good way)! It feels strangely nostalgic and reminiscent of my own experiences, to the point where it made me emotional. The artwork and general aesthetic was really charming as well! I can't wait to play all of your other games. Much love! <3
I really enjoyed this game(and no, not just for the sexual bits) from the botom of my heart. The characters are very relatable, and seem realistic, much like someone I could meet and interact with in real life. It's very rare to see characters that an actually make you feel like ou could physically talk to them, so bonus points for realism and character development. The story was heartwarming and ute, and themes weren.t overbearing like in some games based around characters with certain Anxieties, Depressions, or events that happen in their life due to them coming out for being Gay or Trans or what have you. The writing was rather exceptional, and the background image was very beautifully made ( so kudos to you, or whoever drew that). The soundtrack sadly wouldn't play for me, but I expected nothing short of excellence from it from the quality of the game. One small complaint is that the pacing sometimes seemed a bit off, and maybe more filler or setting description could have been fit in, but that is overshadowed by the high quality.
Overall this game is very deerving of a 5 Star rating, and I would love to see more of your work in the future
P.S. I plan to play your other games as well!!! Keep up the good work<3
i love this game so much,,,
i loved it <3 your writing style is welcoming and easy to read, especially when capturing trains of thought, cant wait to enjoy more of your work!
I am literally Pisti
i have the big gay now
You can't do that to me xD
Felt a bit rushed in parts, but a very enjoyable read.
It's a very cute dynamic the two main characters have.
They both have their flaws, but who doesn't?
It gives them a personality.
Very quick to the sexual stuff though.
I would've loved it to be a longer story, but you did great.
This game perfectly catches that reckless sort of love that I have a habit of rushing into whenever I meet someone who feels safe. It's sooo good!
"She basically jumps into my lap. Oh wow, I got a whole lap worth of cute girl on my hands. I literally don't know what to do with this." fucking iconic god i love Laina she's *clenches fist* so good
i love this game so much!! Both Pisti and Laina were amazing characters and I would die for them honestly.
i'm not good at expressing how much i like things but know that this is amazing
Cute babies oh gosh
the realness of a lot of it just makes it that much more cute, like, I've lived through almost every beat of this... just so relatable.
thanks for the commen! hehe yeah its based on bunch of my own experiences too :p its a bit shame we relate to it but at the same time im happy to write a story that resonates with others and feels real^^
Just finished playing this and it was surreal to see myself in Laina, only I'm like... 15 years late to realizing I'm trans, not to mention life in general thanks to my parents being controlling and overprotective, heh...
But, this gave me a lot of hope for the future, I'm more excited than ever to see my plans through and to finally be able to feel like myself in the company of friends who care! Thank you for this.
thank you for playing! im glad to hear this helped with hope for future and i wish you the best of luck with :>
This game is absolutely precious! Personality-wise, I'm similar to Laina. Even though I know it's fictional, this game just... kinda gave me hope? In general. Anyone can get out of a hole if someone gives them a hand :o) Thank you for making this!
im happy to hear that! and yes, anyone can, life can be hard.but there are ways to manage through it eventually!!! thank you
And one more comment! like yeah its fictional, but like all of the themes and character traits and all that come straight from real life stuff so yeah, it is something that does happen. the goods and the bads ^^
Can you hear that? It's the sound of me shrieking because this game is so good <3 <3 I resonated with every part of this game and the aesthetic of it all was beautiful. I love them both so much o(;u;o)
