In other news, another early review of SMB slipped through the cracks today, heres a quote.

"Video games come and go, but every so often one comes along that reminds us why we love to play video games in the first place and there's no better example of this than Super Meat Boy. It's safe to say that Microsoft can officially close down the Xbox Live Arcade because nothing is likely to outdo this absolute gem of a platformer."

You Must Watch This!


So this fucking awesome Super Meat Boy commercial was made by the amazing James Id, same guy who made our first teaser trailer long long ago.

Like the trailer above the commercial is a early 90s inspired video game commercial, rendered out in vhs format for that extra bit of nostalgia. The announcer voice in the video was done by the amazing Wiggly of wetalkgames.com (hes also the announcer voice in game as well).

Special thanks to Gabrielle Martinez for her very old school video game playing acting and Danny B for his amazing music medley.

Reviews!

So some of you might have already read them, but the 1st rush of Super Meat Boy reviews have come out. Spoiler: They really liked it.

"one of the best platformers I've ever played." -Joystiq 4.5/5
http://bit.ly/9b44am

"SMB is easily one of the best games available on Xbox Live Arcade and should be considered one of the finest 2D platformers ever made."
-Mtv.com
http://bit.ly/c27bdF

Also for those of you wondering about length.
"At launch there's at least 10-12 hours of content to dig through, and more is definitely on the way." - Mtv.com

I hate every post to suddenly go all sappy and emotional, but we are feeling pretty amazing right now and again want to thank everyone involved, SMB was the amazingly hard for us to finish and we put everything we possibly could into it. To get this kind of validation from the press really feels amazing.

For those of you wondering "why dont i have a review copy yet?" please understand that these reviews kinda slipped under the radar and came out quite early, but how can we complain? Truth is we dont have review codes yet, the reviews that have gone up are based off a version of the game put on pnet for other developers to check out.

If you are a writer, and want a review code, or want us on your podcast please use the contact form. but keep in mind.

-We do not have review codes yet and probably wont have them till next week.
-We are currently getting flooded with emails so be nice and patient with us.
-If you want us on your podcast keep in mind we dont wake up till 3pm pst.

2 weeks to go!!!

PS: Heres a link to a very personal interview i did with Alec about the ups and downs of game development. http://infiniteammo.ca/blog/podcast-2-edmund-mcmillen/

So.....we got an email today saying that Super Meat Boy just passed Final Certification. We've had several stressful months leading up to this, and this feels pretty fuckin good and slightly overwhelming:) We want to thank all of our friends and family for putting up with our psychosis during this incredibly stressful time. Also, super thanks to MS for having faith in us during all this...two guys doing the work of like 12 is pretty nuts but they believed in us and helped us a ton:)
