Turner Broadcasting is pairing up with the company that loves the ™, ustwo™ (.™, ..™, …™) to create its newest Adult Swim game, Meatstroke. Based on the hit Adult Swim show, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Meatstroke is a funny new arcade game featuring one of the shows stars, Meatwad. Just in case you don’t know who or what Meatwad is, he is a flying, talking piece of meat that lives in a house with a talking milkshake and some talking french fries. Like most of the shows on Adult Swim, Aqua Teen Hunger Force comes completely out of left field.
Meatstroke’s simple objective is to save the talking, mutant piece of meat from the heat as he, according to ustwo™, “floats through the sky in search of sustenance.” As much as people like to see meat cooked, a charred meatball would be the end of our hungry crusader. Levels are filled with traps set up by the sun, clouds that you must use to protect your meaty character, and of course the sustenance you need to gather.
“MeatStroke is a delicious treat for Adult Swim fans, packed full of flavour, fantasy and fun.” says Joe Braman of Adult Swim.
Meatstroke is only available in the European market as of now, but hopefully it’ll cross the Atlantic soon. Sorry US gamers (including me, darn it).
