Hey everyone :D
I came back from my visit to PaX super energized and feeling inspired. I am currently working with a friend of mine to put together a little game within a weeks time, progress on it is excellent c: If you follow me on twitter, they've been posting updates every so often which I have been RTing if you're interested in seeing what it's shaping up to be.
Thank you everyone for your continued support, even just the nice e-mails people have been sending me back and forth have been paramount to helping me recover to a stable health situation.

Hey everyone, it's been a little while since I last gave an update.
I've been going back and forth between hormone withdraws and being slightly stable, but very highly stressed regardless. However, today I have started my HRT regimen again, on prescription, and hopefully never have to deal with withdraws again.
Also, I have been working diligently on my main project, I've been reluctant to update anyone on it because I feel every time I do, I jinx myself, and the project becomes vaporware. So, just a general "I'm making progress, and the progress is good" :D
Again, thank you to everyone who's donated so far, hopefully soon I can get through all of this.

My Name is Chloe Sagal, I'm an indie game developer, and I'm also a transsexual woman. I am seeking to collect donations to become and feel more like myself. I also have some health concerns, but they are irrelevant.

There are 4 surgeries involved in all of this, the amount I'm asking will cover 2 of the surgeries, and keep me afloat during the recovery process, as well as the cost of some hair removal. The two of which I am seeking first is body feminization and facial feminization. The other two are breast augmentation and sexual reassignment surgery. I am not sure if breast augmentation will be necessary after being on hormones for 3-5 years, and I still need to pick a surgeon for SRS.

The lack of transition has been a major issue for me for quite some time, it has gotten to the point of clinical depression, various stress disorders, and suicide attempts (aside from the 2 that the public knows about, there have been 4 more prior to me being involved in internet culture, as well as a 7th one fairly recently). Aside from all of that, I am a normal person, I am very loyal and very hardworking. I do my best to charitable, when I was well I would volunteer constantly, I even rode along with a church group to help victims of hurricane Katrina by performing various tasks ranging from tree removal, to gutting, to basic repairs, to yard work (more important than it sounds, many families would lose their homes out of technicalities from having unkempt lawns with grass higher than the allowed ordinance levels).

My closest friends notice that when ever I come into a slight amount of money, rather than spend it on myself or save it, I spend it on others if I feel they need it. I have a particular disdain for money, and perhaps it's foolish, but I know that aside from this, I need very little to survive in this world. In other words, I'm terrible with money. However, this is something that is big, something that I am no longer able to work as well as I could towards. I have tried and failed on several occasions to produce something that would be worth enough to receive this, and when those failed, I told a white lie to the wrong person, which spiraled out of control, and I didn't stop it when I should have. But, I am being completely honest now, I am being up front about what I am seeking to do, my situation is the same as before, and I hope that this will become a thing of the past for everyone, including myself.

I've gotten a lot of flak for how I've went about collecting donations in the past, some of which was well deserved, but some of it was specifically related to myself and other people who go through this struggle. I am sorry for what I've done, but everyone involved was refunded, there was no harm done, other than to me and another individual who chose to get involved at the cost of his job. If you are interested in learning more about what happened before (prepare for walls of text) there is more information here:

The Indie Stone Post
Interview with Medium Difficulty
Round Table Interview with Sam Killerman and Allistair Pinsof

Any information gathered elsewhere will be completely inaccurate. And in case anyone did not get the message from any of those 3 links, I am sorry, I lied, I was desperate and it's something that's going to haunt me for the rest of my life.

If you want something to justify your donation, I have provided my last game for free, the link is located on this page,

Also, if you have a problem donating to a trans woman who you feel betrayed by, you can donate to my good friend Lexi, who is suffering just as much as every other trans individual:

I'm so glad that you're doing this, and I know you deserve it (and I am aware of the full situation). Good luck, and please continue the awesome games.
