Super hard, super gibby platformer Super Meat Boy gets its own level editor on Steam today.
“We always wanted to release a basic level editor, but the idea started to balloon when we decided to buy servers and program a fully automated level portal (Super Meat World) to support these levels as a bonus chapter for the PC version,” developer Edmund Land told Kotaku in an email.
Here’s a run down of what you can do with the free level editor:
-Users have the ability to create anything they have seen in game, minus bosses and warp zones.
-Users can then upload their levels to Super Meat World where they can be played and voted on by the community.
-Users can also take their uploaded levels and create full chapters with par times, custom titles and music.
-Users can choose from a full cast of 20 characters to play as in their levels and chapters, regardless of if they have unlocked them in the main game.
-Awesome chapters and levels will be hand picked by Team Meat and become featured as “recommended chapters”.
-The level editor is FREE, a final gift from Team Meat to the fans who have supported us.
To launch the level edit just go into Tools on Steam and select the 1 MB SMB level editor download.
Super Meat World is unlocked by completing two full chapters or collecting 20 bandages in the main game and appears to the left of chapter one on the overworld map.
“We will be doing one more update to SMW next week adding a few missing features and fixing up a couple editor bugs,” Land said. “After that we will be closing the book on the PC version, porting SMB to Mac and swiftly moving on to game number two (because we cant seem to stay happy without working on something constantly).”
There won’t ever, Land adds, be a Super Meat Boy 2.
