My biggest problem with Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme, aside from the character artwork, was the lack of a cohesive story. While I have loved the hijinx that ensued by having so many people in Siren’s Point have their gender flipped it did have a tendency to jump around a lot. Of course, this was mostly due to the fact that each character’s story arc seemed to take place at some arbitrary point in the narrative. Sure, half of the routes took place at roughly the same time, namely just before or just after the initial lab accident that caused all the mayhem, but it was hard to pinpoint just where the others started their story. The finale ends up being five years after the chaos started and at least seems to try to tie up some loose ends.

In the finale for Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme the two new characters are Adam (Ava) and Justin (Jessica) and of the thirteen characters they’re probably the least interesting. After five years of gassing people into new bodies a strange green cloudcover is spotted by these two meteorologists and trouble is literally brewing. They take a sample and the container leaks said gas into the weather station turning both into girls. Realizing that this could be bad, they went to the only people who could really help. Unfortunately this just happens to be the unstable couple of Dina and Lynn, who actually to their credit try their hardest to stop the perfect storm.

Unfortunately, things don’t go quite as planned and the second half takes place during the aftermath of what everyone’s calling the “Boobpocalypse”, a catchy term that I actually really loved hearing. Rolls right off the tongue. Anyway, said super storm turns everyone into women who are caught in the downpour. Which probably wouldn’t be quite so bad if there weren’t also strange animal mutations to go along with it. Aside from Ava, who’s gone quite mad with a capital crazy, everyone tries their best to reverse the effects.

The final two parts of Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme are completely linear, meaning that there are no branching paths. Which is something that I don’t mind as it is an epilogue of sorts. It’s also pretty lengthy, covering a lot of ground and bringing back a good number of returning characters for minor bits as the main characters of this arc work feverishly to keep the entirety of the town from being under the sway of the green gas. The origins of which make a lot more sense by the end than it did at the beginning. As if you can call a mysterious gas that magically transforms people into the opposite sex and that can give them animal features normal in any sense.

With Ava and Jessica finished that means Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme is finally complete. Lach commented on Steam that it will leave Early Access soon and the full focus for him will be towards finishing up Max’s Big Bust. Which has a lot more of a tie-in with this game than you’d probably think. The very end of the second act tells us just what everyone’s been up to and where they’re going. Including the mention of Natara and Zara moving to Axon City. It’s been a wild ride, but every good story must come to an end. And I think they managed to tie most things up rather nicely.
