Monsters & Monocles
Description: ”Monsters & Monocles is a top-down procedural romp for up to four people. It’s a fast paced, run-and-gun shooter that calls back to old co-op arcade games like Smash TV and Gauntlet. Focusing on short and procedurally generated sessions, you’ll be able to hop in for one quick game or play a bunch with new objectives and levels in every game.”

The Corpse Flower is named for the terrible stench it gives off to trick beetles and flies (who actually like rotting flesh because that’s where they lay their eggs) into pollinating it. On or around the one night it blooms, it heats up to about 90°F to help the odor chemicals evaporate and spread.
The Corpse Flower’s latin name is Amorphophallus titanum. Can you guess what that means? (Hint: yes, the word phallus is in there.)
Here’s a couple more pretty pictures from The Huntington:
