Team Meat on the return of Super Meat Boy

When Tommy Refenes first sat down to prototype a new, auto-running one-button Super Meat Boy game in his GDC hotel room back in 2011, it was meant to be a tiny spin-off for mobiles that stopped after nine levels. “The scope of it was going to be very small,” the programmer of Team Meat told me at PAX East 2019 last weekend. “The idea was…

Kitty Kharacters: Team Meat’s Mew-Genics Hints

Four words all but guaranteed to win my attention: "a game about cats." When said four words are twinned with the knowledge that the game in question comes from the creators of Super Meat Boy and one half of The Binding Of Isaac team, my attention becomes unwavering. We know precious little about Team Meat's Mew-Genics other than that it'll be "randomly generated, strange and…

Wot I Think – Indie Game: The Movie

The long-awaited documentary about the creators of Super Meat Boy, Braid and Fez is out now and available for download from its own site, iTunes or Steam. Here's Mr Brendy C to tell you a few things about it before you spend your digi-groats on this much-feted film. Warning: could be said to include spoilers, if a documentary about some guys making videogames can be…

Home Cinema: Indie Game The Movie Is Released

Grumpypants time: I worry slightly that focusing on Super Meat Boy, Fez and Braid risks painting an extremely narrow picture of indie gaming, and as such Indie Game The Movie might be suffering from some of the same echo chamber issues that some felt this year's IGF did. But hell, let's celebrate that it has successfully brought an image of videogaming that isn't guns/boobs/guns/boobs/guns/boobs/guns/boobs into…

Humble Bundle V Adds Braid, Meat Boy, Lone Survivor

It's arguable that the current Humble Indie Bundle is the best one yet. I'd argue it. I'm arguing it right now. But incredibly, it just got better. Added to Bastion, Superbrothers, Limbo, Psychonauts and Amnesia are Super Meat Boy, Braid, and bundle first-timer, Lone Survivor. Oh my goodness. When speaking to Humble's Richard Esguerra earlier today, I took the chance to ask him about what…

Indie Game: The Movie Coming To Steam

I've got a mighty fine idea. Why not point a camera at a bunch of creative sorts and let them speak their minds? That's how Indie Game: The Movie was made, although I suspect editing the hundreds of hours of footage into something watchable, fascinating and entertaining was the hard part. Perhaps that's why Swirsky and Pajot's film won World Cinema Documentary Editing Award at…

Unbound: Ed McMillen Talks With Design3

Who wants a long look into the mind behind The Binding of Isaac? Edmund McMillen recently spoke with design3, a web portal offering education and advice for game developers, and the resulting conversation is wide-ranging, fascinating and what I believe must be referred to as 'refreshingly' honest. That's as honest as the country pub with the shaded garden serving up the first beer of a…

Humble Grumbles / Bundle Of Joy

Good news and less good news from the Humble Bundle camp today. The happier end of the bargain is that purchasers of the current Humble Bundle 4 now get the base contents of Humble Bundle 3 (i.e. VVVVVV, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, And Yet It Moves, and Hammerfight) added to their pack. That's if they've bought HB4 already. If they haven't, they'll have to beat…

Next Humble Bundle Leaks, Is A Goodun

Details of the next Humble Indie Bundle have once more leaked, because Steam's Content Description Record Viewer Thingamie is so ludicrously easy for people to spy. And it looks like it's going to be a bit of a corker, as spotted by DIY Gamer. In the pay-what-you-want collection it seems there will be Super Meat Boy, BIT.TRIP.RUNNER, Jamestown, Nightsky and Shank. That's the first wave,…

OST(erity) Cuts: Indie Music Bundle

Here's an indie bundle with a difference - it doesn't contain any games. Instead, the Indie Music Bundle it's a collection of soundtracks from some of your favourite (assumption #1) indie games and some you have probably never heard of (assumption #2). As is swiftly becoming obligatory, the ten albums are available at a price of your choosing, although this is for one day only,…

Team Meat <3 PC

And we <3 Team Meat right back. Over the weekend, they've been chatting to the cool cats over at IndieGames.com, and Ed dropped this hefty knowledge bomb: We're never going to make a game that couldn't also be on PC. That's a stupid thing for most indies to do. PC is crucial No surprises there, considering that the Steam sales of SMB outnumber the Xbox…

Super Meat Boy Sells 12 Copies On D2D?

Update: Team Meat are now claiming this was only a misinterpreted joke and there's no truth to the reported number. Holy... We've been pointed in the direction of DarkZero's pretty fascinating chat with Super Meat Boy creators Tommy Refenes and Edmund McMillen, and amongst all manner of rumination on stuff like the importance of Steam sales and why they're not worried about piracy, they let…

Boy Meats World: Super Meat Boy Mega-Patch

There are now over 500 levels in bastard-hard platform gem Super Meat Boy. Over 500. This absurd milestone has been reached as a result of a dramatic new update, known in continually Nintendo-prodding fashion as Super Meat World. It's free, it was added to the game on Saturday, and it consists of a slew of new official levels and even more of a slew of…

Root Maneuver: The Potato Sack Bundle

What are you doing right now? Working? Smiling? Breathing? Well, stop with that nonsense and go straight over to the Steam page for The Potato Sack, a new bundle of indie games offering £108's worth of great indie games, including Amnesia, Super Meat Boy, Toki Tori (which you can read Kieron shouting about here), The Ball (which Jim and John talk about here) and Defense…

Beefy: Super Meat Boy PC Outsells 360

Last night at GDC, Team Meat took the stage to let out some of the frustrations that accompanied releasing Super Meat Boy. And those frustrations were Microsoft. Seemingly screwed over on a number of occasions, the independent dev team did not receive the promotion they were promised in return for the month-long XBLA exclusivity. Eurogamer have all the details about this screwery here. But there's…

Beating The Meat: Super Tofu Boy

RPS reader (not making this up) Fuggles the Lightfuggly One sends word that PETA, aka People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has published a parody of Super Meat Boy. You can play Super Tofu Boy here. Is it still a parody if it's just kind of... Super Meat Boy, again? There's not much ridicule going on here, except for Bandage Girl two-timing Meat Boy.…

Super Meat Boy: Meated And Greeted

EDIT: The following is based on extensive time spent with the 360 version of SMB, and we're hearing reports that the PC version currently has memory leak and gamepad support issues. We'll be posting a full review of the PC version very soon. EDIT 2: We've spoken to Team Meat, and they tell us they're working hard on an update to fix issues right now,…

Two New Super Meat Boy PC Characters

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…
