So as of about 5pm PST today 2 totally new chapters have been uploaded to the XBLA version of SMB and you can play them now... FREE OF CHARGE!
Expert Remix and Cramps (nova) have both been uploaded to "The Internets" an Xbla exclusive chapter that acts as a hub for us to upload new level content accessible by users without the whole messy aspect of spending money...
The full list of Internets Chapters is:
Expert Remix (by Team Meat)
Character: Meat Boy
Difficulty: Very Hard
This level pack remixes and raises the difficulty of the top 20 best levels in the game (picked by the fans and myself)
Full list of levels remixed can be found in the forums Here.
Cramps (by NovaSilisko)
Character: Meat Boy
Our 1st user made chapter upload. a very well designed chapter that should be easy enough for those of you just starting out but still quite enjoyable for the masochists out there.
Sewers of Dross (by Team Meat)
A character exclusive chapter that explores Gish and his specific sticky abilities.
The Butcher Boy (by Team Meat)
Character: 8bit Meat Boy
An 8bit retro chapter that explores many mechanics that weren't used in the main story mode.
This 2 chapter addition will push our extra content packs to 80 levels, officially raising the total level count to just over 430 levels!
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the 100s of new levels planned for release via "The Internets". We have over 5 new chapters planned for this year that will feature level design by many different and well known developers, character exclusive chapters and loads of new awesome user made content.
Enjoy the new levels!

Some of you may have noticed that our store has been down because Danielleorama and myself have both moved out of our shit hole apartment and into a nice little house! Well the move is just about finished and we have re-opened the store with tons of new meaty items!
New to the store:
-Charms / Zipper Pulls / Dangles.
Whatever you wanna call them, they can be applied to just about anything or even just stuck on your pc, that's what i did with mine...
There are 4 different sets, each one more rare then the last!
TRY AND COLLECT THEM ALL! I FUCKING DARE YOU!
So, as a few of you know the past 2 months have been quite intense. Being bombarded with 1000's of tech support emails and fan mail, over 10 huge updates, moving out of my shit apartment and Tommy becoming a diabetic cyborg. We have come out the other side with only minor symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder.
I don't want to jump into a post mortem just yet, but to say these last 4 months have been by far the hardest and most amazing months of our lives is an understatement. Super Meat Boy development and launch was incredibly difficult and one of the biggest emotional roller coasters I've ever experienced, but I'm sure most of you will get to witness this 1st hand, seeing as Indie Game: The Movie was there through the end of dev. and documented basically the whole thing.
Being so emotionally, mentally and financially invested in a project like this was insane Tommy and I both went all in on this project and I'm happy to be able to say it's paid off 100%.
Super Meat Boy is a hit!

Its a huge honor to have even been nominated for these awards let alone winning any. Me and Tommy were 100% sure that Super Meat Boy wouldn't win anything going head to head with indie hits like Limbo and Minecraft. It blows my mind when i think about how many people have played Super Meat Boy and i hope you all enjoy what we have in store for you in the coming months.
