GM Promotes Better Eating While You Hurl Food at Strangers
This game is awesome. Banking on the knowledge that most of us have enjoyed the fantasy of a good food fight but have had little opportunity to act on it, mono has created The Good Food Fight for General Mills' Eat Better America.
Gamers get to choose between three healthy dishes, based on splat factor, hurlability and stainage. Then they get to select a trash-talking, food-slewing chef.
We were disappointed at first because after choosing a chef, the site loaded a recipe page. So we thought we'd write the game off - then all of a sudden this crazy chef in a kimono comes leaping out of the frame throwing food at us and saying all kinds of wild things.
It was amazing. It was like playing a game of Street Fighter and finding our little characters come to life to harass us. It was like Animator vs. Animation, except with a tiny person and not a sociopathic stick figure.
Anyway, we lost the game, and in a manner most demeaning we were told to go clean ourselves up. Bummer. But in a good way.
