PETA tries to make a point with Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals

After titles such as Super Chick Sisters, PETA figured there was no reason to stop there: why not inject the universe with a further dose of their own brand of creativity? This time the result is Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals, a flash game that more or less follows Mama's dark path as I outlined way back when.

Play the game and you'll find yourself playing a demonized version of Majesco's lovable character, who prepares Thanksgiving dinner by plucking the feathers and innards out of a dead turkey. The game clearly intends to disgust the player by showing these things, which is hard to react to when it's done in a cartoon style.

At a quick glance, one might think that PETA is trying to imply that the Cooking Mama titles are heartless games that show Mama cheerfully preparing all kinds of dead animals for scrumptious meals (and they certainly are delicious -- the whole thing made me hungry for a holiday meal), but I think what they are actually going for is to find an effective way to speak to the gamer about not eating animals. Unfortunately, this isn't it.
