This is an interactive tool to help you learn how to use different kinds of pronouns. Entered as part of the Nonbinary Game Jam 2019.

You can practise 28 different pronouns here. If you don't see the pronoun you want, let me know in the comments and I will include it in a future release.

You can download the background art (and other galaxy pride flags!) from my Artstation page. These pronouns were either suggestions from friends or taken from the amazing Pronoun Island, which has many more pronouns and examples for you to explore.

Thank you for playing! My own pronouns are they/them or e/em! :)

Thank you for this tool, I think it's a good and useful program!

I was wondering, what method did you use to make all the passages? Is it a find and replace script or something similar? The reason I ask is I've been looking for ways to change the genders, names and pronouns of characters in playscripts.

I used variables, so an example of the code which sets the pronoun to 'they/them' after clicking on the link is:

(link-reveal: "they/them")[(set: $title to "Mx")(set: $psubject to "they")(set: $Psubject to "They")(set: $pobject to "them")(set: $Pobject to "Them")(set: $possessivepro to "theirs")(set: $possessiveadj to "their")(set: $preflexive to "themself")(set: $Possessiveadj to "Their")(go-to: "start")]

And then the actual text before the player chooses a variable looks like this:

"When $psubject reached home, $psubject found $possessiveadj servant waiting up for $pobject."

Oh, you are the one who made the space flags?! That's awesome! I've used them for my desktop background before, they look so cool.

Yes that was me! I'm so glad you liked them :)
