A decade is a long time to wait for a sequel, but Super Meat Boy Forever is almost here after some delays and hiccups.


I wanted to like the first Meat Boy game but it just wasn’t for me. However, I know some folks who dug the hell out of that quirky platformer and they are very excited for the follow-up. I’m just back to overthinking the concept of a small boy made of meat and how that would work. What would that smell like after a decade?

I also didn’t love super meat boy despite all the praise. I did really enjoy Edmund McMillan’s other games Binding of Isaac and The End is Nigh. But he's not associated with Meat Boy anymore so I don't think I'll be giving this one a try
