The sequel to Super Meat Boy! Coming in 2018 for PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android.
Is This a Sequel?
Yes. This is Super Meat Boy 2, but with a less boring name than Super Meat Boy 2.
Lets start with whats the same: Dr. Fetus is still a jerk, gameplay is super challenging but fair, there are tight controls and great levels and you will die...a lot.
Now whats different: Meat Boy and Bandage Girl have a little baby named Nugget (awww). Dr Fetus has kidnapped Nugget, forcing Meat Boy and Bandage Girl to rescue her. Levels are dynamically constructed based on difficulty. Each time you beat a level, it reconstructs into a harder version of itself (up to a point...we arent gods). Meat Boy and Bandage Girl are no longer defenseless, they can punch and kick their enemies. And, the biggest difference, the controls controls are now two buttons, you have a jump, a jump attack, a dive, and a slide.
Two Buttons? That Sounds Dumb!
Heres the thing: shut up. Two buttons doesnt mean less control, it means we designed levels to use two buttons. You can get a surprising amount of movement and precision by designing levels that complement your controls. Super Meat Boy felt great because there was a marriage of level design and controls, Super Meat Boy Forever is no different.
When Is It Coming Out?
We hope to have it in your hands before Summer of 2018. We dont have a schedule on which platforms will be first, but its a safe bet to assume it will be PC/Consoles first and mobile shortly thereafter. We want to get it into as many people's hands as possible without killing ourselves.
