'Choice: Texas' is a game aimed to raise awareness and empathy around the difficult decisions women face, especially in light of recent changes to Texas abortion laws. The online game was designed by Carly Kocurek and Allyson Whipple. They were inspired by recent restrictions placed on abortion, which could potentially shut down all but five clinics in the state.

The game has five different female avatars from different socioeconomic, geographical and demographic backgrounds, including a high school student and an excited woman facing mounting health concerns. The game has a 'choose your own adventure' theme, where players make decisions for these characters. This allows players to put themselves in the shoes of women.

The game is in development and is an Indiegogo campaign. The game makers intend to make Choice: Texas as accessible as possible in an effort to move more passive pro-choice advocates who aren't necessarily affected by Texas abortion laws.
