So what if the iPhone is rendering Adobe Flash more useless than the first three episodes of Star Wars. We can still enjoy it while it’s here, right? Especially if “enjoy” means watching an illustrated, swinging pig get launched off a swing set.

In a student-led club called Fight Club Games, several students (all of whom go by code names in their Kickstarter video) at a Baltimore-area high school are producing a series of Adobe Flash games. Their first game, “Mr. Pigu Swings to the Moon,” features the aforementioned swinging pig. Just one problem: they’ve been producing these games on trial versions of Adobe Flash, and need $200 to purchase the education edition of Adobe Flash CS6.

Donate to Fight Club Games Kickstarter campaign.

The students have raised a little more than $200, but plan on using additional funding to build a website showcasing their games.
