If I had been as level-headed in high school as Andrea Gonzales and Sophie Houser, I would know far fewer Taking Back Sunday lyrics. These two Girls Who Code students built for their final project a canvas game called Tampon Run. You scuttle through town as a cute-as-a-button, ponytailed sprite, jumping over boys to collect boxes of tampons—and shooting said tampons at oncoming enemies.
The title sequence explains the manifesto behind the game: to normalize and de-stigmatize the phenomenon of menstruation, something that frankly terrifies (or at very least, grosses out) a generous portion of the population. Props as well to Andrea and Sophia for having the consideration to note that most, not all, women menstruate.
