A polemical game about the often ignored dichotomous space of public restrooms. The player interacts via gyroscope within the mobile phone in order to immerse them into the experience, and highlight the platform.
The player starts as a working male, finds a public restroom in the town and pees easily. The next level, the player is a working female, and finds a public restroom. This time, the minigame to pee is longer in order to simulate the increase in work needed to pee for female. The game goes on to explore other different typologies of the population and the differences between their ease to find relief in such basic bodily function (e.g. you're a homeless and your attire/state excludes you from most restroom, you're a transgender and thus do not fit in the male/female dichotomy, you're a parent and need to help your child of the opposite gender and do not know which restroom is appropriate or you're unable to change their diapers due to lack of facilities).
Given that everybody needs to use the restroom, limiting an individual's ability to do so is to hurt their dignity and personhood by suggesting they are not part of "everybody".
