The lights are on
Those zany guys at PETA are at it again. Following in the footsteps of other hilarious parodies such as Super Chick Sisters and Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals comes a skewering of the indie platformer Super Meat Boy. The animal-rights group's take on the game, Super Tofu Boy, replaces the fleshy hero with a gelatinous blob of the congealed soy product.
It seems the hero of the actual game has been ditched by Bandage Girl in favor of Tofu Boy, who has better breath and doesn't attract flies when he goes outside.
Between levels of clunky jumping, players are treated with factoids such as "Cows are clever and have been known to go to amazing lengths to escape from slaughterhouses" and "Tofu doesn't scream when you cut it!" Obviously, the game part is less important than the fact that people are likely to play it for a minute or so, maybe laugh a little bit, and then talk about PETA's mission--to educate people about animal cruelty in factory farms, the fashion industry, laboratories, and the entertainment industry.

I just shake my head like always. lol
PETA stop making games and go eat some grass, end.
Vegetables . . .
. . . It's what the food eats.
peeta is a bunch of noobs.
I have a cousin who is a PETA member. Thankfully though she is not crazy (like every other PETA member is).
thats just sad
Watch out, there's probably going to be a Sonic game soon that involves butchering the poor guy for being in terrible 3D games... or there could be Resident Evil game with human... carnivores eating animals alive, and Hulk Hogan in place of the Tyrant!
Oh man, I would have so many ideas for these guys if I cared about working for them.
ill make sure to wear a fur coat while i eat my side of cow rare take your tofu and shove it
Oh those poor anim- yeah, I'd like to super size that.
I was hoping for a video so I could actually see this game in action. Anyway, it sounds funny and retarded at the same time.
Somehow, I knew this was coming.
Nonetheless, about the breath thing, maybe if you brushed and flossed your teeth, your mouth wouldn't stink.
*goes to make his fleshy dinner*
What happened to the other bad guy from the first game? And that game wasn't good.
I really don't like PETA but why go after an indie game company instead of protesting McDonald's? That's like boycotting small businesses.
