This game is free for dyslexia awareness week!!

By buying this you will have access to all future updates.

This game was created to help other feel the frustration of having dyslexia.
You play as a small fox a fairy tale story with Kings, Queens and witches.
We don't claim to be actually like what a dyslexic persons sees, but merely a simulation of the frustration. 

There are a bunch of options to try to make the game easier to play based on people's common conceptions on what fixes dyslexia.
There is an option to add a colored overlay and remove the flicker in an attempt to combat "Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome/ Irlen Syndrome".
And there is an option to change the font to Open Dyslexic which in my opinion is harder to read.
There are options which allow you to play the game in non-dyslexic mode if you want, but wheres the fun in that.

The game includes a range of accessibility settings.
Color Overlays
Page Flicker Off
Open Dyslexia Font
Text To Speech
