Recently, it was announced that Team Meat (creators of Super Meat Boy), are working on a tablet game titled Super Meat Boy Forever. It will be a game based off of the popular PC title, but it will be a completely different game compared to the PC version. At first, details were rather scarce, but shortly after there were quite a few major aspects of the game revealed — and overall we have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
First of all, a lot of people were saying this was going to just be an endless runner, which sparked a few negative reactions from fans expecting something a bit more elaborate. That rumor was quickly squashed by Team Meat when they released a fact sheet about the game. Before we jump into the facts, check out this short GIF showing off the game’s menu interface and a brief start of a level.
Team Meat plans to release Super Meat Boy Forever on smartphones, tablets, and Steam (PC/Mac) at some point in 2015. Even though that doesn’t tell us too much other that there’s no need to get your hopes up about seeing it this year, they also mentioned they are only two months into development and things are moving very fast. There was no mention of intended pricing, but they did say that it “will not use abusive $ tactics to drain your wallet and cheapen the game experience”.
The game will feature a full story, with six playable chapters, as well as an Endless mode that features “daily runs” which sounds like a unique challenge every day of the week. Although there’s a separate Endless mode, the story mode will also present a lot of “endless value” as every time you die, the level is completely re-vamped. Super Meat Boy Forever won’t be a simple one button game either, Team Meat is promising a complex game with intuitive controls and an emphasis on accuracy.
With how far they have progressed already in these first two months of development, it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see this game very early next year. In the mean-time, we’ll just have to hang out and wait for more updates from Team Meat about what else to expect, and when to expect it. For those who haven’t played the original Super Meat Boy yet, you can pick it up on Steam for $14.99.
