Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

May 5, 2010 -

On behalf of Adult Swim Games, developer This Is Pop has created a “green” hunting game that substitutes a tasteless food made from coagulated soy milk as a target instead of typical living wildlife.

Tofu Hunter lets users blast away at such non-indigenous species such as Tofu Dogs, Tofu Bucks and Trophy Tofu (complete with sear marks). Players must avoid Tofu Does and are awarded bonus time for shooting Soy Milk containers.

Even with a lack of real animals the game manages to impart a realistic feel, so much so, in fact, that a few commenters on a PETA blog post about the game indicated that it made them uncomfortable to play.  “… honestly it is so close to animal hunting in every way that I found myself sick to my stomach. I didn't find it different than the deer hunting games at all, except that the target was white and square,” wrote a user named Barb.

“I tried the game and it was really close to hunting games that made me feel ill,” wrote user Allie, adding, “That being said, I didn't find this game offensive. I am a vegan and I think chasing tofu around and shooting it is not something I will lose sleep over.”

To be fair, This Is Pop does warn about the violence before players take to the game, stating, “This game contains graphic depictions of violence against tofu. We use this violence not to shock, but to better illustrate the pain and suffering that innocent tofu goes through every day in the barbaric name of veganism.”

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

In what game can we hunt PETA people?  I'd play that one.  Or maybe a whale hunting game where you spear that fat idiot from the Sea Shepard?

 

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

I forgot what I was going to say because of the meaty photos..

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

Nope. I'll keep enjoying my meat. Now, it they think that's uncomfortable...

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

 Thats so beautiful.  Nothing like meat, I don't know how people don't like it.

Also, doesn't eating too much soy mess with your bodies hormones?  I'm a growing teenager, I need my meat, and I definitely don't need estrogen.  

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

IIRC eating too much processed soy does indeed mess with your hormones.  Emphasis on "processed" as I understand it.  Though I think that's mostly academic as most soy products are processed as I understand it.

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

Aren't they? And I've been to the places that have those sexy things. Meat on swords as far as the eye can see. God Bless Brazil. Though I think PETA thinks quite the opposite.

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

Some day i'm going to find a way to prove that plants not only feel pain, but remember and react to pain, then Vegans are going to have to starve, muahahahaha! 

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

They don't have a problem with eating their murdered tofu but they don't like how it's killed in front of the other baby tofu's?

Let them enjoy their soy cube of death and murder!

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

Heh, if it makes PETA uncomfortable then it must be a good thing.

I do respect any vegetarian who respects other's right to eat meat if they so choose, it's when they get all peachy like PETA does that I get offended by them.

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

Agreed, wholeheartedly on all points.  When I ran a movie theater for a major US theater chain, one of my assistants was full-on vegan, to the point of no eggs, no milk, no cheese and so forth.  However, he didn't give two shits if I ate a Domino's pizza with every meat topping they offered.

It's the ones that look at you like you're the devil for eating a bratwurst at a baseball game that piss me off.

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

I'll hunt it if it means I never have to eat it again.

Re: Target Protein Instead of Animals in Tofu Hunter

All tofu must die! hahahahahaha XD

E. Zachary KnightValve's editorial control comes from removing problem games and accepting games to Steam. They make no claim over any games otherwise.12/17/2014 - 12:52pm
E. Zachary KnightNeeneko, It is not at all a form of endorsement. Grenlight is an open forum for game developers to pitch their game to Valve/Steam and Steam users. Does Valve have some editorial control? Yes, but not to the point that they preapprove games.12/17/2014 - 12:51pm
Neeneko@EZK - I disagree. Greenlight is built off Valve's brand. While not an explicit endorsement, it is a form of it, otherwise Greenlight would have no value over other platforms.12/17/2014 - 12:05pm

E. Zachary KnightA Game being on Greenlight is not an endorsement of said game by Valve, Steam or anyone related to Valve or Steam. Greenlight is a combined sales pitch to Steam and its users.12/17/2014 - 9:51am
E. Zachary KnightThe Life cycle of a Greenlight game: A game gets made->Developer puts it on Greenlight->Gamers vote for it->Valve decides it is worthy of a Steam release->Game is sold on Steam. While the game is merely on greenlight, it is not available for sale on Steam12/17/2014 - 9:50am
InfophileGreenlight games may in the future be sold through Steam. A game there may be "greenlit" and then sold on Steam proper, or it may not, and never actually be sold on steam. That quote refers to them selecting some games from Greenlight which they will sell12/17/2014 - 9:39am
MechaTama31"Today we’ve Greenlit another batch of 50 titles to advance through Steam Greenlight, and be offered worldwide distribution via Steam." Am I missing something here? Because it sounds like Greenlight games are sold through Steam.12/17/2014 - 9:00am

prh99I just wish if they are going to curate (as selective and rare as that is) for content, they'd do little for quality (like does this game actually function at all). Personally, I avoid GreenLight and Early Access like the plague because of lax standards.12/17/2014 - 1:34am
prh99EZK: My point wasn't that they are responsible for people's purchase decisions, but that their policies and criteria for approval needs some work. As far as refunds go, you know it's bad when EA has a better policy. EA, former worst company in America.12/17/2014 - 1:21am
