The people in your life do not see you how you are. You know this because you experience it every day. Each time you interact with someone, it is a gamble whether or not they see you the way you see yourself. They will never truly understand, but sometimes they will try.

Only sometimes.

This is a game about how far you get into knowing someone before their true colors are shown.


"Do Not Lie Down. Do Not Roll Over." is a solo journaling game about how treacherous it is to be a trans person interacting with cis people on the daily, about how easily trust and comfort becomes betrayal when you are transgender, about how casually you will be disrespected.  It is also a game about the inherent frustration that comes from experiencing this.

"DNLD.DNRO." was made for the #TRANSFUCKINGRAGEJAM, run by stargazersasha. I encourage you to look at the other games made for this jam and always support trans artists.
