it is a very interesting question indeed.
i chose a female character because the game is about 'issues' that girls deal with in life. it is also meant to show young boys, that one of the problems that girls encounter...is them.
i've received very mixed opinions about the game, especially from men. they tend to not 'like' it, but they can't put their finger on 'why'.
my favorite review on the apple store was " this is the worst game to ever be put on the app store, it should be removed..." - a male reviewer from italy.
i'm going to be updating the game, using c2, and i look forward to pissing off more confused men/boys...lol.
