A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Gender Prison is a game about the trans experience. With the theme of 'Transition' for the Swinburne Summer Games Lab Games Jam 2016, Lain Mitterer, Savannah Ferguson, Giles Excell and Jarryd Worland to team up to tell a story about life outside the gender binaries.

Over 48 hours, Lain created the art and contributed to design and story in collaboration with Savannah Ferguson, story writer, designer and sound designer. They handed over their work to Giles and Jarryd to code up and make up into a proper project, and Gender Prison was born.

A little on the nose, ham handed but overall a learning and talking experience.

Full game avaliable for free on both Mac and Windows.
