PETA Game: What to Play "When Plaid Goes Bad"

March 28, 2008 -
By way of ConnieTalk, GamePolitics has gotten wind of a new message game from animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Bloody Burberry employs game tech to bash the well-known British fashion house for what PETA claims is the continued use of animal fur in its designs:
Burberry may be best known for its distinctive plaid, but its use of real fur is making the design house synonymous with cruelty to animals. Burberry continues to use fur in its designs despite the fact that leading clothing retailers like Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Ann Taylor, Polo Ralph Lauren, and others have pulled fur from their stores forever.

In the rudimentary game, players move a furry critter around a high-end shop, evading security guards and spray-painting a "no fur" message on some of Burberry's expensive designs. The site also features links to PETA videos and a place where users can sign an online petition to Burberry.

LOL, thanks for that briliant rebutal, PETA thug.

PETA and Greenpeace both have the same problem: The journey has become their only purpose. They don't really want what they ask for, if they get it they'll just up the ante.

Seems fun enough, hate the brand anyway, I wouldn't be seen dead in one of their chavvy hats and supposedly "rich" clothing

First off, as much as I like animals I can't stand PETA. Secondly, what is an online petition going to do. Lastly, it sounds like a bad game.

High end fashion is a waste of time and money anyway.

Hmmm I'm not a fan of PETA at all... but I suppose the game is fair enough albeit slightly contrary to their supposed "don't really do anything illegal" position. (i.e. nothing illegal like running round a store vandalising stuff with spray paint.)

Two things though, is this aimed at children? PETA have a track record of, innapropriately IMHO, foisting their political views on kids. Second thing, if it is aimed at children are the videos linked the sort of things parents will be happy for their children to view?

Gift.

Anything to do with PETA equates to fail and stupidity.

IMHO

The game was rather lackluster. I only played it on easy, but it was rather annoying to play.

But I agree, PETA is another one of those annoying groups that could be doing something more productive. I guess they like to hang out with Greenpeace.

Spray painting? If memory serves, graffiti tagging is what got that mark ekko game banned (or was it rated higher? I can't remember) in Australia. If this is a real store that they're targetting, could this be interpreted as an attempt to incite vandalism?

As long as you eat the animal you skin for fur or leather then I see no problem with it.

PETA can go suck themselves off. Nothing more but extremists hypocrites. I despise PETA, they don't know shit and they help no one. I forgot what they're called, but there's another animal groups, who, I think, are much better.

How long before it gets called a 'vandalism simulator'? ;)

PETA needs to burn in hell, or at very least freeze to death in the giant freezers they use to store all the animals they kill.

@bugger
I agree, if animals didn't want to be eaten then they wouldn't be made out of meat. Why can't PETA understand that simple fact?

People Eating Tasty Animals


It's a well known fact that the cutest animals are the tastiest!

I'm going to use a novel, unheard of concept to these people. I won't buy the product.

Wow, no need for a petition or anything, not even need for a cheap ass game.

If Gamepolitics is covering PETA games then how did it miss this wonder of copyright infringment and inaccurate protrayal of koopas as turtles?

this is stupid while i do not like "high" fasion it is up to people who buy this stuff as to what they get not peta also it is natural for people to eat meat and vegies not just vegies

PETA is stupid, and fashion is stupid. When stupids collide.

Yuck.

I would never in my whole life support PETA - those people are insane.

I can't stand PETA, they demand too many things. You can't have your spotted owl and eated too (For the record, delicious).

PETA can suck a fart and die. Their vice president had a bovine graft when she was on dialysis.

Why do anti animal-skin campaigners never spray paint over, say, Hells Angels' leather jackets? ;)

@GoodRobotUs

Simple - they're roadkill if they ever do that.

PETA is the yuppies of protests groups. They in all honesty do more harm than good. At times they come of eco-terrorists.

Koopas aren't turtles?

Penn and Teller did a good Bullshit episode on PETA. You can check it out on youtube before it finally gets pulled down. Apparently, they gave upwards of $75,000 to a Animal Liberation Front terrorist who had in the past firebombed multiple buildings.

Taxes: what dirty secrets CAN'T you find with them?

@ myrpok

All that cruelty makes the animals taste better.

@E.Z.K.: There is a parody of the group, PETA. They call themselves People for the Eating of Tasty Animals.

If you play this game, the eco-terrorists have won.

@ myrpok

It's still up, more than likely- or at least, cuts and edits. There are a bunch of vegans going around spreading lies and trying to make PETA look better by attempting to redirect attention.

I've seen PETA-based video games before- one of them was a blatant rip-off of Super Mario Bros., where the enemy is Colonel Sanders, and Princess Peach is replaced by Pamela Anderson.
...
I'm not lying. You just CAN'T make this crap up, you'd have to be crazy beforehand.
But in any case, I'll listen when PETA realizes that meat is essential in the human diet, animals die when crops are sewn and harvested, animal-based medical research is responsible for the things keeping us alive, and that it's hypocritical of them to protest shelters for killing off animals when they turn around and do the exact same thing when nobody's looking.
I'm not holding my breath, of course.

Zach: no way, Greenpeace would be on board with wearing fur. It's all-natural and biodegradable, unlike those synthetic fabrics which are produced by evil carbon-burning corporations. Fur industry = green industry!

At any rate, I'll hop on the "PETA is deplorable" bandwagon (been that way ever since they compared a multiple homicide in Vancouver to chicken farming) but at least their petition is being run with an on-site widget instead of a link to PetitionOnline or something. Hopefully they've got someone checking the signatures (all twelve of them) to ensure authenticity. I'm all for PETA taking a big online stance if it means they'll stop bugging the seal hunters.

I personally see nothing wrong with fur, as long as the animal wasn't abused in life. Too often, "fur farms" keep the animals in small cages and poorly fed, and handlers sometimes mistreat them. But that's not always the case. Content and healthy animals have more beautiful coats, so many of those farms give their stock a decent life before they're harvested.

Besides, humans have been wearing fur (and eating meat) since... well, since we could be clasified as homo sapiens. And Fur looks good, feels great, and is quite warm in the winter. To hell with PETA and thier extremist views.

This game "advocates vandalism," but I bet you're not going to get anyone trying to get it banned. Fucking double-standards...

PETA sucks anyway.

You know, I've always found it ironic that they believe that by destroying personal property they can stop fur sales. I mean, if you ruin someone's fur coat, don't you think they're going to buy another one, thus artificially creating demand which would not otherwise be there?

PETA is the single-most easily trollable group in the universe though. Zippo Cat should get 'em every time.

Do you get to dump dead dogs in dumpsters too - like PETA volunteers?

@ Papa Midnight

Ha! I diddn't think anyone else knew about the group that IMAO started.

Isn't PETA the same organization that asked the city of Hamburg to change their name to Veggiesburg in exchange for $10,000 worth of tofu burger patties for the school system?

On the one hand, their fanatical followers provide a useful service, SOMETIMES. Like exposing that cow-abuse story in the US that resulted in the meat recall.

BUT the rest of the time, they are lunatics. There's a difference between exposing animal abuse, and being a vandal/terrorist.

@Nekowolf

I forgot what they’re called, but there’s another animal groups, who, I think, are much better.

Are you thinking of the SPCA perhaps?

Yeah! The SPCA, that's it! Thanks :D

@Gray17

The SPCA is a great organization, I don't think anyone can complain about them. Everyone respects and listens to the SPCA because, unlike PETA, they make sense with their actions and requests. They aren't demanding that everyone in the world switch to veganism or stop wearing fur, like humanity has been wearing for the last 10,000 years.

While I'm not a fan of wearing fur, PETA and all their hypocrisy can go straight to hell.

What do you expect from a group that believes milk is poisonous?

P.E.T.A.

People Eating Tasty Animals.

@Bugger

Ah nuts, you beat me to it >

People
Enforcing
Tyrannical
Agendas

or we can start our own P.E.T.A.

People Enjoying the Torturing of Animals.

Our 1st assignments:

Get Micheal Vick off the hook and re-open the Roman Colisseum to gladiators fighting animals.

Hell it can't possibly be harder then trying to convince everyone on the planet to not eat meat whilst coming off as nutjobs and extremists.

Oh and has anyone here ever debated someone from PETA? They fall for PETA'S BS hook line and sinker every time, they call meat eaters murderers and say "you can't call yourself an animal lover and eat meat" (I try to point out you can't call yourself an animal lover unless your into bestiality). And almost all of them have an air of 'holier than though' amongst them.

It's funny because it does nothing but alienate themselves and hurt their cause.

Papa MidnightWith GTA5 (to date) failing to even provide indication of a PC release, I'm realising that this might be the first GTA game that I have not played (outside of Chinatown Wars) since the series inception.04/19/2014 - 8:14am
IanCSo im guessing a bunch of edutainment games, which a lot of people elsewhere are going gaga over, dot count as classics? Okay. If you don't mind me, i have a sudden urge to play Putt Putt....04/19/2014 - 6:15am

MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 2: If Humongous Entertainment wanted their stuff on Steam, why didn't they talk to their parent company, which does have a number of games published on Steam?04/17/2014 - 8:45pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 1: When Night Dive spent the better part of a year teasing the return of true classics, having their big content dump be edutainment is kind of a kick in the stomach.04/17/2014 - 8:44pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.giantbomb.com/articles/jeff-gerstmann-heads-to-new-york-takes-questions/1100-4900/ He talks about the future games press and the games industry. It is worth your time even though it is a bit long, and stay for the QA. There are some good QA04/17/2014 - 5:28pm
IanCErm so they shouldn't sell edutainment at all? Why?04/17/2014 - 4:42pm
MaskedPixelanteNot that linkable, go onto Steam and there's stuff like Pajama Sam on the front-page, courtesy of Night Dive.04/17/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOkay, again, please, please, PLEASE get in a habit of linking to whatever you're talking about.04/17/2014 - 4:05pm
MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm
