Every once in a while I see a product and think “Now why didn’t I think of that?”. And that is exactly what I thought when I read about Tampon Run – the new video game that uses tampons instead of guns.
Written by Andrea Gonzales and Sophie Houser, two young ladies attending a Girls Who Code program, the game has players collect tampons before the villains do. When attacked, players shoot tampons at the villains and who ever has tampons left over wins.
Said Gonzales, “The idea of making it funny and quirky kind of makes menstruation a lot more approachable and more comfortable”. An idea that Dot Girl wholeheartedly supports.
