I've been meaning to write this for a while, but, thanks to life, I've only now found the time.
I've been playing video games for 25 years now. I've recently gotten into PC gaming, but thanks to always having to worry about DRM in PC games, I'm still primarily a console gamer, and I don't see that changing anytime in the future. Team Meat is the reason I keep coming back to the PC.Super Meat Boy
is not only one of the most fun games I've ever played -- I'd easily put it in my top 5 games I've ever played, if I were making a list -- but it's programmed in such a way that I'll NEVER have to worry about whether or not I'll be able to play it in the future. While I find Steam to be a fantastic platform, I still tend to avoid games that use it, since so many of them are locked down to a single profile, you have to be online every time you want to install a game, etc. But Team Meat obviously cares about its customers, since Super Meat Boy
is DRM-free EVERYWHERE, including through Steam. Edmund's The Basement Collection
and The Binding of Isaac
are the same way, so I know making Super Meat Boy
DRM-free was no accident. As someone who adamantly hates DRM, and the feeling that I'm merely renting what I pay money for, it's really good to know that there's a team out there who truly does make games for gamers who are in it for the long haul.
I know I'm just one fan in the sea of fans that you guys have, but I want to personally thank you, Team Meat. You not only know how to make an amazing game, but you know exactly how to take care of your customers. So thank you, and I can't wait for Mew-Genics
-- I have no doubt in my mind that it'll be a day-one purchase for me.
P.S. - I don't know if you remember me, but I got my Indie Game: The Movie
ticket signed by Tommy at its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. Hi, Tommy!
