PETA launches Super Tofu Boy, vilifies meat lovers

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.

    I like how Bandage Girl is made out to be kinda slutty in a way in this game. Regardless, I look forward to seeing how this all pans out.

    Aren't plants living organisms too? Just because veggies don't have a face, doesn't mean they don't feel pain.

    who in their right mind would eat faceless food!? seriously though, PETA is really dumb. for real. homeboy.

    Everyone in America should be forced to watch the Peta episode of Penn & Teller's Bullshit! It's brilliant. WTF, why does my recaptcha have a word written in Hebrew?!

    I am going to kill a fly today PETA ,because you are pieces of shit! Also I have killed 7 birds and 2 rats!

    Is peta really still going on about that "Vegetarians are better lovers" bullshit. Seriously, those guys need to grow up.

    It almost seems as if they are purposely trying to troll people...

    Doesn't help Tofu Boy is an unlikable ripoff of Meat Boy. This reads like a bad fanfiction, though the game is mediocre.

    I don't mind PETA promoting veggies and tofu. I won't eat it but at least it doesn't try to make carnivores and omnivores look like murderous psychopaths. I checked out the McDonald's anti-game and the Cooking Mama anti-game and I couldn't stand more than a minute of either. What is so villianous of eating meat? PETA would destroy thousands of jobs if it got its way, honestly.

    Oh, PETA, how you try to remain relevant,... Just face it. God said man could partake of the flesh of animal. Check Genesis after the big flood if you don't belive me

    It's more fun to just play the real Super Meat Boy, don't waste your time with this.

    Wow. Just wow.
  • Blue2 - December 1, 2010 11:29 p.m.

    PETA, go protest front of hungry bears and tigers.
  • tokillarockingbird - December 1, 2010 11:17 p.m.

    Maybe PETA has a point. Because the first thing I did after playing Meat boy was go out and slaughter hundreds of animals. I should really give up my delicious meat diet because meat is evil and turns me into Hitler. What a crock of shit PETA, just because someone has on opinion that’s different to yours doesn’t make them bloodthirsty animal killers.

    "Music donated by Tommy Tallarico?" WHAT. THE. FUCK, TOMMY? I thought you were cool. :(
  • Clovin64 - December 1, 2010 10:56 p.m.

    Why doesnt PETA just stop beating around the bush and make a Hitman parody where you play a bald Vegan Hitman (who gets all the girls obviously) who goes around taking out fat sweaty meat lovers? I'd better watch my back next time I satisfy my "animal murdering cravings" by eating a cheeseburger in McDonalds then.
  • mockraven - December 1, 2010 10:54 p.m.

    I saw this article and thought, "Poor Meat Boy got neutered and turned into tofu." Then I read he was supposed to be sexier, somehow, and I laughed. I actually like tofu a lot as a cooking ingredient, so I have nothing against tofu and I like meat, too -- I eat it all the time, even. It just seems silly to twist the concept behind Meat Boy into "animal murderers suck!"

    following the developers instruction that was in the flash version of the game, i am going to lol at ppl who think that meat boy is anti-meat propaganda so @ ppl who think meat boy is anti-meat propaganda lol
