I love this, thank you for making it.
You never fit in.
You were never allowed too.
You learned, far too soon, that people like you weren't allowed to be small, unless you were also unseen.
Growing too fast makes your bones and soul ache.
But one day, you will be able to grow at your own pace.
Growth is, fundamentally a game about hope. It's also a game about abuse, and recovery from it. It's a game about being autistic and queer in a less than stellar environment.
CW's: ableism; ableist slurs including the r-slur; abuse; implied child sexual abuse, dysphoria, transphobia.

im literally in tears. we were the same age. thank you for reminding me that i am good and loved and worth loving, sometimes i forget, because all the bad words being thrown at me hide the good ones. i appreciate you.
Oh, wow. I love this game with everything I have; it's so heartfelt and raw yet so well-written. As someone with Asperger's Syndrome I can relate; the eyes part is what really hammered it in. This game is great. Please keep writing!
I click submit with tears still dripping from my eyes. Bittersweet game that I really connected with. Thank you for writing it!
A very simple game and yet very touching. I guess you used Twine to make it?
This was really sweet and really connected with me, it made me feel better while I'm going through a rough time. Thank you!
Thank you for sharing that, I'm really glad I was able to make something that helped a bit and hope you feel better soon!
Thank you. This was beautiful!
