Cooking With Peta 25 November, 2008

Peta, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has created a parody of a game ‘cooking mama’, in which you kill a turkey and do messy things with its bits, until Mama miraculously converts to tofu after seeing how messy the turkey was. Have a play, it’s good fun. Interesting that they use this platform to push issues. In the US, it’s nearing a holiday called thanksgiving, normally associated with eating turkeys (here, we tend to do it on Christmas).

It’s interesting that an activist group is using interactive entertainment to raise awareness of minority issues. This is a well polished, well thought out and fun (to me, at least) game. I don’t think I’ve seen a concerted effort like this before to raise awareness of an issue usually not in the public spotlight. It’s a flash game, popular with children, taht can run on any platform. This is very well done. Maybe Amnsety International will make a game where you bomb hospitals? (maybe not)
