Diphthongs containing a +high element shift from rising to falling:

[ˌʊə̯.ɯə̯ˈʊə̯ɕ.iə̯]

Second element of all falling dipthongs is reduced to [ə].

Diphthongs become mid-centralized monophthongs.

Is this still a word at all? I think it when wrong when Rickard decided to kill all but one consonant :P

That's the point of the game! If the word still is recognizable at the end, you've done it wrong! :D
And ɵ is the rounded counterpart of ɘ. Look at an IPA chart and you'll see.
And the word was "paralyzing", not "analyzing". ;)

How can this possibly go wrong!? It's supposed to be a fun game!

Looks like we cannot make more sound changes from this word now. Anyone who wants to contribute a new word to the game? :D

Resegmentation/glide insertion in order to avoid hiatus:

[ˌwɵː.ʔɘːˈwɵːɕeː]

It's important to keep in mind what kind of a game this is. It's a phonological rules game, not a letter-substitution game. Every step should be one that you can plausibly imagine occurring throughout the lexicon of an entire language, not just this one word. Steps like "ʑ is devoiced" are simply bad form. What language has a process where only one of its fricatives is universally devoiced?

If your only goal is to make the word unrecognisable, we can do that in two or three steps (e.g. deletion of unstressed vowels followed by cluster simplification). But where's the fun in that?

Indeed.

Long final vowels [e:] turn into [ej]:

[ˌwɵː.ʔɘːˈwɵːɕej]

1. We're not making sound changes for an entire language. Just one word. That unrecognizable thing, I might back off a bit on that one. Atleast the word should look different when we're done with it. But the more different, the more fun.
2. "ʑ is devoiced". I could've said "all sibilants are devoiced" instead, but ʑ was the only sibilant present.
