Drawing on Anthropy’s personal history, Ohmygod Are You Alright? is about survival and the ways in which it can limit one’s options. The game is played in a similar manner to the classic Frogger titles, with the player trying to cross busy roads without dying. The player learns about how Anthropy dealt with the aftermath of being hit by a car, her experiences navigating the medical system, and how she understands distressing bodily changes. As a sequel to Dys4ia, this game draws on themes about queerness and gender. A trailer for the game can be viewed here.
