Pro-vegan game pokes fun Super Meat Boy

TODO alt text

PETA has just released Super Tofu Boy, a free Flash game that’s meant to deter meat-loving gamers from feasting on flesh. The vegan friendly satire on Team Meat’s Super Meat Boy finds the main character dumped by Bandage Girl in favor of Tofu Boy.

As a healthy alternative with the “best buns in town,” Tofu Boy is described by PETA as a sexual dynamo. “He’s packed with essential vitamins… and has the kind of stamina that fatty blobs of beef have only heard about in fairy tales,” reads part of the character description on the game’s official site.

This isn’t the first time PETA has attempted to promote a vegan lifestyle with an in-your-face Flash game. The organization’s most recent game releases include Super Chick Sisters, which requests players to boycott McDonald’s – and Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals, a satire on the Cooking Mama series, which includes vegan Thanksgiving recipes.
