What's Your Beef? A Newsgame on Horses, Courses and Mechanised Food

We've been making games about news for a few months now covering a variety of topics, some serious and some less so. This time around we've turned our development gaze onto the horse-meat scandal. This story is about many issues including the mechanisation and industrialisation of our food processes. We decided to use that as a theme and created this fun newsgame in around THREE days.

In 'Cow Crusher' the player runs their own meat processing plant and must ensure that it's output is 100% beef. Players need to hit the right button to squish the animal into the right meat product and keep the quality high, whilst making sure they don't process any horses in the works. Enjoy!
