Two New Super Meat Boy PC Characters

By Quintin Smith on November 16th, 2010.

Is it still platforming if there aren't any platforms? I propose: painforming.

We have a date! Super Meat Boy will be squelching onto the PC in exactly two weeks, boasting six (SIX!) exclusive characters. We already knew two of them- MineCraft guy and Captain Viridian from VVVVVV – and two more have been announced this morning. Ooh, and Team Meat has also mentioned that from November 23rd, anyone pre-ordering the game on Steam will get SMB for the price of $10, as opposed to the game’s full price of $15. Now, those characters.

Super Meat Boy + Minecraft + VVVVVV

By Alec Meer on November 8th, 2010.

It’s been sad, watching consoleland getting so excited/frustrated about Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refene’s breakout indie hit Super Meat Boy these past few weeks. It should be ouuuuuuuurs. [Stamps feet petulantly]. Fortunately, the PC version is still planned for sometime this month (the target is the last week of Nov) – complete with some bonus famous faces. Well, they’re more or less faces, if you squint a bit.

Two of the PC version’s six exclusive playable characters will be Mr Minecraft, as publicly arranged on Twitter with Notch (as shown above), and VVVVVV’s Captain Viridian (as shown below). There are four more mystery chaps yet to come. Perhaps you’d like to take a guess.

Super Meat Boy Gets Retro 90s Ad

By John Walker on October 12th, 2010.

I wonder how we'll spoof noughties ads.

I remember in the late 90s thinking to myself, “I wonder how people will spoof/retro this decade?” It was a ten year spread that seemed to be of such variation, and mostly made up of retroing various previous decades, that it seemed like it wouldn’t have a distinct flavour of its own. Of course, time passes and that all changes, as the splendid new pseudo-commercial for Super Meat Boy demonstrates. It’s an excellent production designed to capture the style of early 90s gaming advertising, as recorded on VHS. Despite the ad’s failure to mention the PC release, it’s coming out on the machine that made McMillen’s name a month later, on the 20th November.

Watch First 20 Minutes Of Super Meat Boy

By John Walker on October 5th, 2010.

I too love punching meat.

Super Meat Boy is due to reach the PC on the 20th November. (A month after the XBLA release, sadly.) Team Meat have gathered together (that’s Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes) (and not even together, it’s by robo-Skype) to present what must be the least professional commentary of the first twenty minutes of a game I’ve ever enjoyed. Not being able to see the same screen makes it especially fun. It’s below.

Meat Is Murdered: Super Meat Boy Montage

By Alec Meer on May 19th, 2010.

You wouldn't catch Bowser doing that to Peach

The below three minutes of mingled in-game action, animation and blippy-bloppy music show off Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes’ upcoming Super Meat Boy perfectly. It looks clever, funny, twisted and packed with juicy giblets of visual invention. It also looks like I’ll almost certainly be unable to play it past the first few levels.

Very Rare: Super Meat Boy Teaser

By John Walker on February 18th, 2009.

He's your cuddly, freshly killed friend.

Edmund McMillen is a very special person. RPS has been following his forays into gaming disturbia for the last year, so it’s with positive expectations that we great the gradual release of information about Super Meat Boy. The sequel to last year’s Meat Boy is planned for release on PC and Wiiware at the end of 2009, and today the first teaser has appeared. And it’s… it’s of the McMillan oeuvre. No game footage yet, but certainly something worth a watch. It’s below.
