…and it’s deeply disturbing. Not as disturbing as the video for “Meat Is Murder“, or the actual practice of killing animals for meat, fur, feathers, and other things. Still, it’s depressing and weird, and that weirdness is heightened by the game’s happy, nostalgic gloss of old-school, 8-bit time-wasters.
Like the meat industry itself, the game is tough to beat. Let one cow, pig, or chicken go to slaughter, and it’s over. You know, just like it is for the animal.
