Meat or Die (lost mobile game; 2011)
Meat or Die was a web series created in 2009 by Japanese animation studio Bonus Company. It is mostly known for its run on Nintendo's video service Nintendo Video from 2011-2015. It follows the misadventures of dinosaurs Yans and Gans who try to get meat in New York City. However, they always fail.
Meat or Die is a 2D action-adventure game where the player can play as either Yans or Gans. The main objective of the game is to collect the most meat in a stage. The player can fire various projectiles, including a fork and a frying pan. There were three levels in the game, a generic city level, a desert level, and a forest level. In those levels would be "enemies" that the player would defeat in order to get more meat until the end of the level and spike traps on the floor of the level. Enemies would include pigs, birds, moles, and porcupines. There might have been multiple mini-bosses in each level, such as a giant rabbit and a sauropod in the forest level. At the end of each level, there is an online leaderboard that shows the players who gained the highest points.
On August 23rd, 2011, the Official Meat or Die YouTube channel uploaded a trailer for a Meat or Die mobile game for the iPad. No new information has surfaced since the trailer, as not even the official website mentioned the game.
