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
"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."
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/
