Very Rare: Super Meat Boy Teaser

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.

There’s a blog to follow the development here. And then there’s this…

    How can something be horrifying and funny at the same moment?

  2. Morberis says:

    I am so cutting my steak into that shape for supper.

  3. Tei says:

    This is vegatarian propaganda.

  4. Fumarole says:

    Well. That was… different.

  5. Theoban says:

    I’m sorry Meat Boy! I won’t eat you! Well…maybe just a bite. Or two…

  6. Stuk says:

    Heh… wow. That was… different

  7. Nighthood says:

    What the hell was that about. @__@

  8. TelefonHonda says:

    I’ll never eat meat again! I promise!

  9. PleasingFungus says:


    I… look forward to hearing more about this project?

    (Gotta approve of the name.)

  10. Okami says:

    Oh noez it’s coming out for wii and gonna be dumbed down and I’m allready stopping because it’s not really funny any more…

    Slightly more on topic: Yay!

    Plants respond, albeit it slowly, to outside trauma, just as vegans precious cute furry animals do.

    Get over it bitches (I say this as lovingly as possible) you have to destroy and consume other organisms to survive. Making a distinction because one is cute and has a little furry nose and tail, and one is “just” a growing stalk of tissue strikes me as dishonest. You don’t want to eat meat, fine, thats cool man. Don’t try and pretend its due to some superior level of moral development.

    If the thoughts of a soul have anything to do with your decision, place your head in a car door, and close repeatedly.

    A pithy couple of sentences will usually garner a better reaction.

    I would have a lot more love for Meat Boy if he wasn’t a carbon-copy of Ogmo, except made of meat.

  14. Evil Vitamin C says:

    Wow, this is actually the best trailer for a game I’ve ever seen.

  15. Markoff Chaney says:

    Mmmm. Super Meat Boy Tartare…

    Damn, I’m hungry now.
