One of the most successful indie games of the last years has been the platform game Super Meat Boy, developed by the cleverly named Team Meat.
The game was released in 2010 on Steam and soon caught the attention of critics and players alike for its nostalgic gameplay formula, remiscent of Super Mario Bros and Capcom’s hit Ghosts’n Goblins : a 2d platformer requiring good controls and precise time, the main character Meat Boy will travel through danger infested stages to save his girlfriend Bandage Girl from the evil Dr. Fetus.
The game was also released on Xbox Live Arcade with added content.
The team, while hard at work on the Super Meat Boy sequel, has announced today the development of a new game, started as a ” weekend game jam”, as the developers state on their official site and evolved in a month or so into a new official game from Team Meat.
The new game will be called Mew-Genics and will involve randomly generated content and, to no one’s surprise, cats!
The development seem to be going on quite nicely as the developers say that they’ll be able to give more details on release dates and platform, gameplay and some screenshots
Team Meat also points out that the development of Super Meat Boy 2 is going strong and won’t be held back by Mew-Genics development.
