Dating Simulation, Cooking Simulation
Different Games Conference 2016 Arcade
Meat Boys is a cooking simulation game portraying gay men’s dating culture and its normalization of sexual objectification. In this game, the player opens a dating app menu to meet meats. Depending on the conversation with the meat, the player then proceeds to spend the night with the meat and enjoys a wonderful cooking session.
Designed for the millennials who uses dating apps on a regular basis, the game’s main objective is to raise awareness on gay culture’s heavy emphasis on physical attractiveness.
The game has been exhibited at the 2016 Different Games Conference, Game Devs of Color, and Playcrafting NYC Winter Expo.
