Gendercare Ways & Dreams 1.0 Game-test example results
A typical W & D result:
Patient name: R L G
Age: 07 yo
W & D 1.0 Results:
210 Rose points
100 Blue points
RLG is a Brazilian 7 yo child.
His uncle R perceived RLG was a kind of a "different boy".
When his uncle R found the W & D 1.0 version in Gendercare, he downloaded it and RLG tried it.
The child always followed the female angel ways... and always when he took something female, he showed he was happy with it.
When at the end of the game, the boy character changed for the girl, RLG was very, very happy, and would like to play again and again...
That is a typical W & D 1.0 game result.
Another example now from Australia
Hi - to whom it may concern, my name is Kimberley, when I did your "ways" game, I got (two hundred and ten Rose Points), and (zero Blue Points), I did it a number of times and it always came out the same, 210-rose & 0-blue. Now I know it is meant for children, but, .... I'm a fifty year old MtF -Transsexual who is only just now transitioning and becoming "her real self", at this late stage of my life because I could no longer "go on" as a man anymore (this is the very, very, very short version of my life).
I would have been so grateful to have come across this game forty-five years ago, my life would have been much different and much happier - much sooner, and with much less heartache etc...
Anyway, I think what you're doing is wonderful and I hope you are getting as much, or hopefully more, support than you need to develop this game into a very sophisticated tool that could be used professionally all over the world by the trained & even untrained alike, it is the beginning of something wonderful and long overdue. My sincere best wishes and gratitude to you all, you are onto something very good here, and I hope it gets the funding and interest it deserves to make it into a diagnostic tool that is used by millions of doctors etc, all over the world..... ... hopefully it will help to educate some doctors as well. Anyway, thankyou so much again, If you manage to develop this fully, I'm sure there will be hundreds of thousands of grateful children as well, who will not have to suffer in the wrong body all their lives, as I did up till now...... Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou..
Love Kimberley ���� Y
All MtF or FtM transsexual has a litte bit of a child inside...
A lot of them start transitioning later in life, to start a new life, as a new child.
Thank you dear, your tender words!
That is the first playable version of Ways & Dreams Gendercare Game-test for children that perhaps could develop an unexpected gender.
What is a Gender Game Test?
Today there are no good instruments and methods to evaluate and diagnose children with any unexpected gender development and even a GIDNOS-Gender Identity Disorder.� Gendercare Gender Clinic started since 2003 that concept, to evaluate children.
Our Beta 1.0 version is a very preliminary one, but shows the main ideas to develop future evaluation game tests. It is very preliminary including because we use to communicate with the player, written words and small children do not know how to understand written words. We intend to develop in the future the communication through spoken words.
To develop the next version with voice communication we need a partnership, because we will need more resources and voices in English. From then on the small children, from 3 to 6 will understand and play the Game more easily.
The game is a decision making RPG.
We have no fights, no violence....only choices....and each choice has its proper value, in two main point scales
We have a rose scale and a blue one, for female and male choices.
At the end of the game, we ask the player (or the parents) the results.
1st Decision: who you are, boy or a girl?
As the game opens, the main character is a girl in a starting board..... she has only one way to follow.....and that way send her to an old man. That old man ask her.....Who are you? A boy or a girl?
If the child decides for a girl, the same character will continue.... but if the child chooses a boy, the character� will change immediately for a boy character.
The player continue in the same way....and the old one show instructions about the game.
The Two Angels: boy and girl angel
At the second board of the game, the child will follows one of two possible angels... the blue or the rose.
If the player follows the rose angel, the player will win 20 rose points for that decision, and vice versa for the blue one.
Following the rose one, the next board will be a beautiful female house....with dresses, garments, dolls, flowers, etc...
Following the blue one, the next board will show a big place, with weapons and male signs.... other boys, etc...
Some of the items, signifies rose or blue points.....when you take them...
Each of those two boards, have two exits.....a rose angel, or a blue one.... and the game continues.
The Female/Male� Boards
After that second angel selection, if you follow the rose angel, you will be in a rose board..... and you may come back.....and vice versa for the blue board.
But if you continue in the same way, rose or blue to the next board, from that board on you have no possible come back ....if you decide for the rose, is rose....if blue is blue.
The Transformation Board
Suppose the player started as a boy character..... all the game the player will use a boy character, even when he make female choices....and if he continues in female boards...... in that board there is a lake.....and the player will continue, going inside the water of the lake.
But that water is magic water.....and if the boy character has more rose points than blue points at that stage, a female character leaves the lake..... the boy was transformed in a girl.....and that girl will go until the end of the test, where she will see her total rose and blue points.
And vice-versa.... or perhaps your character will never change!
The End: send us the result!
We ask to send us the result, through one email, so we may analyse your result....with your name, age and original sex.
Thank you. Sending us your children results you are helping us to develop new methods and resources for future diagnosis and evaluation of children with gender problems.
To develop that game-test we used a freeware RPG software named
RPG toolkit editor, 2.2
We thank the developers of that� wonderful RPG game maker.
Now we are working on it.
The main improvements will be:
- 1.Some new pictorial presentation. The 1.0 version had 3 neutral boards,
3 female and 3 male. The 1.1 version will have 4 neutral, 4 male and 4 female.
Also, it will have new backgrounds and images;
- 2.Some new boards (and new music) and choices (some new ones);
- 3. There will have some fights....against special enemies:
- Against FEAR and GUILTY - the fear and guilty all "unexpected" child needs to fight.
- Against SHAME - the shame all possible GID/GIDNOS child needs to fight, when they
feel as someone very unexpected.
- Against LOSSES - the big losses all person with a gender unexpected development needs to suffer and survive...
sentimental,affective, professional, social losses...etc
- Against STIGMA and SOCIAL EXCLUSION - the final fight against social death.
Those fights will not change the rose and blue points.... only the health and life amount of the Player. The same happens in the real life... FEAR, GUILTY,SHAME, LOSSES, STIGMA and SOCIAL EXCLUSION is something that can trow off balance someone... to stress, to destroy mental health, professional stability, social happiness... but never changes your rose or blue side... David Reimer`s life, was an example of that.
Also, those fights will be a resource to transform the game in a more game like instrument, and not a test like one, as is the 1.0 version.
In any danger, the player has always the option to run away from the fight.... to survive, as in the real life of all "unexpected" people. They that know how to fight, and have joysticks to fight, may do it.... but the important is not to fight, but to survive all pressure against your life.
And follow your ways and dreams.... determining your destiny, based on your own truth.
We improved also the start of the game... now the player is a small baby...he will write his/her name and age.... later will say what sex family say he/she has... and then receive some instructions and start deciding his/her ways....choosing things...writing the destiny. Fighting, running...for life.
At the end of the game, the player (or the parents) may save the game, for example using the name of the child:
The parents or the child may send us as an attachment of email, the .sav file saved.
Opening that saved game on our computers we will see all the choices and ways of your child....and we will analyse the result.
Now all that is free! All is free!
