As featured in,,,,,,, Fast Company Co.exist, among others.

“…if you’re into eight-bit nostalgia (or fighting the patriarchy), it’s also fun as hell.” - Fast Company, Co.exist

“…a simple platformer with ambitious goals. Your spunky, pixelated avatar runs across the screen to the right familiarly, defeating as many enemies as possible while conserving ammo….Throwing tampons at people feels very, very cool.” -

“…an 8-bit video game with a big mission” -

“…Tampon Run is a game both fun and educational, like Oregon Trail, with more periods.” -

“…[you] will definitely become addicted within the first five minutes of playing” -


High schoolers Andy Gonzales and Sophie Houser created Tampon Run to combat the taboo around menstruation. Developed during their summer at Girls Who Code, Tampon Run quickly went viral and has garnered the attention of major media outlets around the world. Join them in de-stigmatizing menstruation around the world!

Yes please

I fully support this game and the message behind it! Made me chuckle!! Fun way to make tampons and periods less scary.


All this game is good for is making more feminazis.


Terrible. Poorly designed nonsense. Whoever created this needs to learn how to make video games.
