Abortion: The Game

Women developing video game about Texas abortion access.

Are there other ways that people could learn more about reproductive health-care access besides through legislators and the news? Two women are developing “Choice: Texas,” a video game based on the state’s abortion debate. Allyson Whipple and Carly Kocurek, along with illustrator Grace Jennings, have set up a Tumblr and are looking for funding through IndieGoGo. They are labeling it as “a very serious game” and say it will focus on different female characters and Texas-specific scenarios they encounter. It will be available for free on the Web around February 2014.
