Mad Science Cat Game On Hold For Mobile Super Meat Boy

You might remember that Team Meat, two-man studio behind uber-tough platformer Super Meat Boy, was working on a mad science cat breeding sim, Mew-Genics. Moral of the story? Cats are gross, but awwww kitty! Now, though, it's on hold in favor of a new Meat Boy game—for phones (and Steam). » 8/29/14 9:25pm 8/29/14 9:25pm

Super Meat Boy Would Be a Bad Movie, but Its Pitch Meeting is Gold

When the creators of Super Meat Boy were approached by a Hollywood guy who said their game would make for a great movie, they thought they smelled a scam. Who knows what the script-shopper really had in mind, but being clowned for nearly an hour in a Skype conference (audio above) probably wasn't a goal. » 7/30/13 7:30pm 7/30/13 7:30pm

It's Not A Glitch. It's A Feature. It's Art. It's Beautiful.

We lacked a campfire, but that didn't stop us from telling tall tales about the incredible—but completely true, I swear!—things that happened to us while we played our favorite games. Forget about title recommendations, or stories of overcoming difficult challenges. That impressed nobody at recess. The gold was in… » 8/10/12 6:00pm 8/10/12 6:00pm

Here's the First Look at a Super Meat Boy Completely Rebuilt for Mobile…

When Team Meat set out to create a Super Meat Boy version for touchscreen mobile devices, creators Tommy Refenes and Edmund McMillen vowed they wouldn't just slap a virtual gamepad on the thing and do some half-assed port of their downloadable hit for PC and Xbox 360. » 4/01/12 6:30pm 4/01/12 6:30pm

Video Games are the New Best Way to Make a Living Composing Music

You may have heard that it's tough to make a living as a musician. You heard right! It's a tough world out there, and very few people get paid a good living to make music. But while it may seem daunting from the outside, there is actually a greater demand for music than ever—there is more media created each day than… » 2/23/12 8:00pm 2/23/12 8:00pm

Super Meat Boy Being Rebuilt for Touch-Screen Mobiles

Despite the fact its creators have railed against the quality of iPhone games, and openly trolled consumers on the iTunes store by selling a parody game for $350, Super Meat Boy is being rebuilt to be playable on touch-screen mobile devices, the game's two-man team said in a Twitter conversation today. » 2/09/12 11:30pm 2/09/12 11:30pm

Multi-Touch Not Worth the Hassle with this Meat Boy Clone

It was independent games development's darling of 2010, and all who dared cross it risked the righteous anger of its creators and fans. But badass platformer Super Meat Boy still is not available on mobile gaming's No. 1 platform. And I don't think it's because one of its creators got into a pissing contest with Apple. » 12/23/11 9:30am 12/23/11 9:30am

The Best Game Music of 2011: The Binding of Isaac

We've done a lot of big-budget games so far in our Best Video Game Music of 2011 series, but there were some great indie soundtracks released, as well. One of the very best of those was Danny Baranowsky's dangerous, dark, synthy work on the Zelda-esque roguelike The Binding of Isaac. » 12/22/11 8:00pm 12/22/11 8:00pm

Super Meat Boy Blowing a Hadoken Through a Saxophone!

Did that headline get your attention? Good, because you should go and read this super-cool piece by Kill Screen's Lana Polansky about mechanics, practice, saxophone, jazz, and Street Fighter.

The New Humble Indie Bundle Might Be The Best One Yet

Get 20% More Evil in Today's Free The Binding of Isaac Update

Edmund McMillen's The Binding of Isaac managed to be one of the creepiest, most f-ed up games come out in quite some time. So, it's especially fitting that the co-creator of Super Meat Boy's offering a sizable update on All Hallow's Eve for his action-RPG shooter. Here's what the update adds, from McMillen's blog: » 10/31/11 11:30am 10/31/11 11:30am

VVVVVV Creator Makes Super Meat Boy a Tad More Impossible

Super Meat Boy is no joke. That's a hard game, and that's part of its appeal. Put it in the hands of the maker of another, harder game, and it collapses into a singularity of motherfucker-what-do-you want-me-to-do difficulty. » 7/17/11 1:00pm 7/17/11 1:00pm

As of last Friday, April 1, Half-Life and Left 4 Dead developer Valve has been dropping cryptic clues in its own games (Team Fortress 2, Portal 2) and games made by others (Super Meat Boy, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, AudioSurf). The common thread? Potatoes. » 4/05/11 11:30pm 4/05/11 11:30pm
