What was I trying to make here?

Boa Retina is a game that dives deep into messy gender uncertainty. It is an uncomfortable blend of abstract golden-age arcade design, retro computer aesthetic, the unhealthy ways my gender feelings manifested before coming out, and external conflicts from things trying to keep life in order. It is a story of breaking free…

breaking free…
