Ways  &  Dreams  Beta  1.0

 

That is the first playable version of

 Ways  &  Dreams

  a GID  evaluation Game-Test, created and copyrighted by

Gendercare Gender Clinic

 

What is a GID Game Test?

 

Today we have no good instruments and methods to evaluate and diagnose children with a possible GID-Gender Identity Disorder.  Gendercare Gender Clinic is starting now that concept, to evaluate children. Nowadays we have two versions of the game in English: 1.0 and 1.1

Our Beta 1.0 version is a very preliminary one, but shows the main ideas to develop future evaluation GID game tests....it is very preliminary, because we use to communicate with the player, words....and small children do not know how to understand written words.The version 1.0 has no fights and simpler boards & characters & less situations. Version 1.1 has some fights, some more elaborated characters and more boards. But the rationale is the same, for both versions.

In a next version we intend to put all the communication resources with the player, in Voice....so the small children, from 3 to 4 yo could understand and play the Game. And we intend that the result score of the child goes directly to Gendercare.

 

How the game may help to evaluate GID children?

 

The GID child likes to play alone, as likes to crossdress alone…

The game may mimic for the child he/she is alone… that way the child will play freely. But we may have the score of the play…  that way we will be able to see what are the child reactions to the game situations, considering the child feels alone and hided from other’s eyes.

To know these feelings is the only way we may help the child, as soon as possible.

 

At what computers the game works fine?

 

Only at Windows systems! With Linux it will not work properly! Sorry!

For Version 1.0

 

That game is a decision making game, as a 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 to send us an email to

 

wal@belaspalavras.com     or

 

torrwad@gendercare.com

 

 

with the name, original sex, age and the results for the rose and the blue scale.

We ask also comments about the game, bugs, etc.

 

The First Decision: Who you are, a boy or a girl?

 

As the game is open, 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 she decides for a girl, the same character will continue.... but if the child choose the boy, the character  will change immediately for a boy character.

The player continue in the same way....and the old one explains some things about the game.

 

The Two Angels: boy and girl angel

 

At the second board of the game, the child will follow one of two possible angels... the blue or the rose.

If the player follow 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 touch them...

Each of those two boards, have two exits.....a rose angel, or a blue one.... and the game continue.

 

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.

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 way....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, thru one email, so we may analyse your result....with your name, age and original sex.

You may find the game result at the end of the game after the child played the game. You may save the result as a .SAV file on your computer and later send that sav file to us as an attached email, with your comments.

 

 

Thank you. Sending us your children results you are helping us to develop new methods and resources for future diagnosis and evaluation of GID children.
