I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been spending an unhealthy amount of time careening an agile slab of beef through some unscrupulously punishing levels as of late. Which is a fancy way of saying that I bloody (pun tragically intended) love Super Meat Boy, which was recently released on Xbox LIVE Arcade.
So I was a bit miffed – nay dismayed – to hear that there are absolutely no plans for a sequel.
During an interview with Eurogamer, the two man development team (awesomely named ‘Team Meat’) were keen to state that their focus was on creating new a new IP altogether.
“There will be another game, stated co-CEO Edmund McMillen, “but it won’t be Meat Boy. It’ll be totally new.”
He went on to talk about his fear of development, considering the crazy amount of work that went into the development of Super Meat Boy.
“We’d be lying if we said we hadn’t talked about the next game – because we very much have. But thinking about it right now makes me want to stab myself in the stomach as hard as I can. With a gun.”
Although we’d love to see a Super Meat Boy sequel, we completely respect Team Meat’s commitment to new IP. Along with thatgamecompany and Q-Games, Team Meat has leapt straight into our ‘will buy anything they make’ list of awesome indie developers.
Has anyone here been playing Super Meat Boy? Anyone 100% the game yet?
