PETA has taken a jab at Team Meat's Super Meat Boy
, creating their own browser-based parody, Super Tofu Boy
. PETA have been actively dipping their protest hands into the games industry in recent years, though Team Meat are not really flinching at the parody, but are rather embracing it.
"First off I want to thank PETA for helping us turn Super Meat Boy into a household name and of course for making themselves look quite foolish in the process," said Team Meat's Edmund McMillan on their official blog
. "See (as mentioned in countless interviews), Meat Boy isn't made of animal meat, he's simply a boy without skin whose name is 'Meat Boy'... but sshh don't tell them that."
Not one to take a parody on the chin, Team Meat will also be adding Super Tofu Boy to the Steam version of their critically acclaimed game to which PETA are apparently grateful, telling Digital Spy
"We’re very pleased that Team Meat will be including Super Tofu Boy, Super Meat Boy’s soy protein adversary, in the Super Meat Boy video game", adding that they're "excited to see how things play out when the two meet in Team Meat’s game; but since vegetarians, on average, live longer and healthier lives than meat-eaters, our money’s on Super Tofu Boy".
My money's on Super Meat Boy.

Really? Is this a fact? Cuz most vegies I have met are normally pale and skinny and lacking s***loads in their diet.
Great addictive game as well.

Not blown away but the interface is nice and the restarts are quick, the handling is a bit balls though... feels like I'm back on the NES.

Feels great when you start rolling A+'s every map, really need to go back and find all the bandages though.
