I’d like to introduce you to Super Tofu Boy, which (somewhat predictably) follows the adventures of the title character. Our curdy friend must save his girlfriend – Bandage Girl – from the evil Meat Boy. Insert appropriate cackle here…
The game itself draws heavily on the recently-released indie darling, with similarly-styled gameplay, characters, art direction and general aesthetic.
Like many things PETA are involved with though, it’s not exactly an exercise in subtlety. As you play, you’ll be given handy “Tips”…
Vegetarians make better lovers.
You can’t actually make a dress out of raw rotting animal flesh.
Tofu doesn’t scream when you cut it!
LOL@ Meat Boys bad breath.
The interesting part of all of this, of course, is that Meat Boy is not made of edible meat (he’s just a boy who happens to not have any skin), so their efforts are somewhat misdirected. But, y’know, if you’ve got a bit of time to waste and you don’t mind having political activists barking their beliefs at you, Super Tofu Boy might be just the thing. Play it here.
Fact!: Super Tofu Boy (the flash Peta Parody) cost more to make then Super Meat Boy (the console game).
The revelation that Team Meat created Super Tofu Boy first:
And the beautifully comedic:
How many Peta members does it take to change a lightbulb?….
None, Peta can’t change anything.
Developer Edmund has also posted a response on their blog, which explains a bit more about the company’s opinions of the game, the attention it’s gained them, and their thoughts on PETA as an organisation.
