SUPER MEAT BOY WON BEST OF SHOW AT PAX!

Now when we got the nominations from Destructiod and Machinima we were totally floored by it, but never in our wildest dreams did we think there was any way to win seeing as we were going up with Mortal Kombat, Portal 2 and Duke Nukem Forever.

Its a huge honor to win this, it feels very validating and at this point of dev this is something that was very very welcomed.

We want to thank dtiod, the fans and especially thank Danny B and Jordan Fehr. Danny and Jordan held the fort at Pax and really killed it for us, they are amazing talents but all of you will hear that first hand very soon.

There was a rumor going around that people were switching over the game demos at the MS booth to super meat boy. Turns out that this was actually true and confirmed by MS, people at pax were switching off the other Game Feast games to play SMB because the wait to play it was so long. MS reps actually had to delete SMB off all the other demo kiosks to prevent this.... awesome.

So yeah, Pax went very very well.

Here are a few videos from the event.

UPDATE: Warning, this video has spoilers! not only does it show the final character select but it also shows the ch2 boss fight with animated ending.



Note that the locked characters in the char select are only half of the playable characters you find through the game. the other half will be found in warp zones.
Gish can stick to walls by holding X.
