"Kittens killing robots (for a good cause)!

Sadistic robots have enslaved orcas at SeaLand Marine Park. The evil Sheep Puncher robot has kidnapped sheep for the twisted wool industry. Only the Kitten Squad is up to the task of saving these gentle animals. Players must guide the Kitten Squad, armed with weaponry ranging from carrot rocket launchers to yarn ball guns, on missions to defeat the evil robots and free the animals in this action game brought to you by PETA."



Also, doesn't collecting wool generally do no harm to the animal they are shearing? I mean, I could be wrong here, but don't domestic sheep's coats continually grow and shearing is necessary for them to continue to live healthy lives?

I actually found an article that seems to corroborate this, but maybe there is evidence to the contrary.

"Modern Farmer: Let’s get right down to business. Will wool just keep growing and growing if humans don’t cut it off?
Dave Thomas: For domestic sheep like the Merino [Shrek’s breed], the answer is yes.

MF: So domestic sheep have evolved based on the way we groom them?
DT: That’s right. Primitive sheep like Bighorns in the West still shed most of their wool every year. And domestic sheep, the ones raised primarily for their meat, will do some shedding. But for the majority of sheep, there is continual, year-round wool growth...

MF: Are there potential health issues?
DT: Full fleece can be bad in very hot weather, sometimes leading to heat stress. There are also mobility issues: if a sheep with long wool lies down on a heavy incline, it can be impossible for them to roll off of their backs. In extreme cases, they can die.

MF: Do most sheep hate getting sheared?
DT: Just like going to the dentist, nobody loves getting sheared. If only sheep knew how much better it makes things in the long run! It’s funny: young sheep will fight against shearing pretty hard, struggling and kicking. But older sheep are pretty docile – they know the routine, it’s not such a big deal. A good shearer will be done in three to four minutes, with no pain at all."

Doesn't it have an appropriate ESRB rating? If so, then I don't care. Always interesting to see organizations use gaming as means to influence or make a statement.
