Super Meat Boy is getting a reprieve from the butcher block. The game, which won the Pax 10 at Penny Arcade Expo 2010 and Game of the Show by Destructiod, has got a vegan-friendly version, thanks to some folks at PETA. Super Tofu Boy is almost the same puzzle game, and it’s free to play online or download. Plus, as PETA reminds us, he doesn’t scream when he gets cut. Tofu Boy is trying to save Bandage Girl from Meat Boy’s bloody, jealous (yet super tasty) rage.

“Meat Boy is a vengeful, bloody cube of rotting animal flesh,” the game description reads. “And he smells. After a short-lived fling with Bandage Girl (sympathy dates, really), he became enraged when he was dumped for the tasty and satisfying Tofu Boy. Once Bandage Girl slept with Tofu Boy and saw all that he had to offer, it was bye-bye beef, hello bean curd. Enraged by his loss and lack of ability to compete with the badass that is Tofu Boy, Meat Boy snapped and kidnapped Bandage Girl—because if he can’t have her, no one will.”
