Super Meat Boy free for keepsies on Epic Games Store

Splendidly deadly platformer Super Meat Boy is free to keep on the Epic Games Store if you grab it now. This is the second of the freebies luring people onto Epic's new store since its launch in December 2018, following Subnautica (and if the carrot doesn't work, there's always the stick of exclusive games). For now, hey, if you install Epic's client and register an…

Super Meat Boy Forever auto-running into 2018

Super Meat Boy Forever [official site], the auto-running sequel to 2010's super-rad deadly platformer, has reappeared after several years in that Team Meat 'missing-presumed-cancelled' limbo state. Team Meat last night announced it'll hit in 2018. Forever is an auto-runner, sure, but just as deadly and tricky as ever. This time, Meat Boy and Bandage Girl do have the ability to fight back, biffing enemies as…

Edmund McMillen, the co-creator of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, has announced a deadly new platformer. The End Is Nigh [official site] is its name, and coming out in July is its game. It's a collaboration with Closure creator Tyler Glaiel and no, it's Øuroboros, another platformer those two had been working on. The End Is Nigh is a "sprawling adventure platformer"…

Charlotte Gore’s Screened Made Me Scream

Screened is a fiendish little free platformer in the vein of Super Meat Boy with a scratchy, itchy post-punk soundtrack that's a perfect match: both are like fingernails run down a blackboard, yet both unavoidably draw you in. The game was built for the Ludum Dare 31 game jam, the theme of which was "the entire game on one screen". Screened spins its single screen out into…

Team Meat’s Live Action Stealth: A Voyeur For September

Team Meat, makers of Super Meat Boy, have announced their intent to become an indie game developer. What does that mean? That's my cruel way of saying that the two-person team have put their previously announced new game Mew-Genics on hold, and released a fuzzy, live-action trailer for a new game called A Voyeur For September, about which there are no details other than that…

Lovecats: Mew-Genics First Footage Shows Rutting Moggies

Mew-Genics, the cat-breeding-based follow-up to Super Meat Boy, has been in development for almost a year and half - that's almost a decade in cat years. Too long, too long! We'll all be crawling under the nearest chest-of-drawers to die soon. At least we finally have some in-game footage to look at, even if it does take the form of an animated GIF. But given…

Free The Meat Boy One! Ransoming Super Meat Boy Galaxy

The entire gaming world and its robo-dog is currently going from door-to-door and begging for cash, so a shaft of philanthrophic light amidst the Kickstarted darkness is a welcome one. We posted about Mario/McMillen & Refenes mash-up Super Meat Boy Galaxy last week, but it was unclear whether Aubrey Hesselgren would ever share more of his half-gag, half-tribute project with the world. Turns out, he…

Super Meat Boy Galaxy Is “Just An Experiment”

Over-talented game dev Aubrey Hesselgren crafted an unofficial 3D mashup of Super Meat Boy and Super Mario Galaxy, apparently "for Tommy Refenes' 30th Birthday". You can see a video of it in action below. Hesselgren says on a Reddit thread devoted to the idea: "It's just an experiment in adaptation. I kept hearing people write off 3D games with all the arguments about spatial perception,…
