It's a puzzle game with a narrative about a cat's journey of regaining freedom from narrowly defined gender expectations and embracing the cat sexuality spectrum.

The game is called Free Again because while children's minds were free from rigid conceptions about the world (sexuality included), adults' hearts are locked by rigid ideas;  the spectrum, among other similar ideas, removes some rigidity from how we perceive the world, and make us freer just as we were children.

It's happily made for the #RainbowJam2017 ^^
