Who made the Poop!?

Posted by Edmund on January 18th, 2014 in Mew-Genics

The question of this caturday is... who made the poop!?

Image
Its a crazy mind puzzle that is a bit trickier than some might assume... can you figure it out?

i leave you with a screen shot from today's breeding tests, as you can see im a pretty impressive breeder.

Image

it took a while but i was able to breed a purebred "brick" cat using selective breeding methods. her mother's mother only had this texture on her tail. and as you might assume "Wooshy" can take quite a punch before she goes down!

sadly shes barren (yet pregnant?!).. the baby just isnt coming out!

So some of you might know the history of Team Meat... but most of you dont know all the gritty details. ive decided that it would be best to update those of you in the dark on our tragic tale leading up to our most epic project yet, Mewgenics! so here is a comic.

also as a caturday bonus i bring you my last MTGO Cube draft win.. very mewgenics themed!

Its Caturday again!

Posted by Edmund on November 23rd, 2013 in Mew-Genics

it's been a while and a lot has changed in the past few months. development wise we are over the hump and the feature creep is slowly being wrangled down to a manageable lump.

development aside, the biggest issue we seem to be having with mewgenics is explaining what the hell it is. "WHAT IS MEWGENICS?" "HOW DOES IT PLAY?!" are by far the most common questions we get these days... and it's honestly not easy to answer.

but i'll attempt to do so with a comic...

Image

Image

Image

did that do anything for ya? are the pieces starting to fall into place? because if they are please tell us what this games actually is, it will help us sleep at night.

as the weeks inch closer to our release, sometime next year ill be dropping in little tidbits of info, filling in all the rest of the gaps and maybe even posting some gameplay!
all in all mewgenics is currently the biggest project Tommy and I have ever worked on, and we are both going all in on a game genre we aren't even sure exists...

that said i was recently doing some research on a lost Nintendo game called Cabbage... it's the only game i've read about that seems to be along the same lines of what we are trying to do... but our game has a lot more poop in it.

any who, ill leave you with an amazing cut off the Mewgenics album, a song about one of the roughest toughest cats that can be found in Boone County, D. Claude!

OUR BOY TURNS ONE!

Posted by Edmund on October 23rd, 2011 in Super Meat Boy!

(WOTC make this happen and ill be forever in debt)

So as some of you know, last week marked the one year anniversary of Super Meat Boy launching on Xbla... and what a totally insane year it has been.

Its pretty hard to believe its already been a full year since its release, so much has happened its really hard to recap it all, but we both really want to give a heart felt thank you to every meat boy fan out there who has supported us and the game.
Tommy and i always talked about having a launch party for Super Meat Boy, due to the Pc release and Editor + Super Meat World updates we never were able to take the time to have one.. so what better time then now?

This party will be taking place all of next month and everyone's invited! We will be holding contests, releasing updates, having sales, unavailing secrets, giving away free copies, uploading tons of videos and probably a ton of other random shit that we come up with as the month goes by, but the point is November is Super Meat Month and we want it to be special.

But 1st, an announcement...

Super Meat Boy will get a sale on XBLA next month! (so save your points). We dont have a set date yet, but we have been talking to MS, patched things up and are going to be putting SMB on sale on XBLA next month along with a free update that will add tons of new levels to "Teh Internets". its a new year and we are putting the past behind us and all agreeing to do what is best for SMB and the fans.

and now... THE HALLOWEEN CONTEST!!!!

This ones simple, send us a pic of you dressed up as something Meat Boy related for halloween (its best to do this via twitter), a few days after halloween we will choose a few top costumes and send the winners free copies of ALL 3 SMB COMICS! (yes even issue 1 that has been out of print for over a year!)

Image

So follow us on twitter and send in those pics!

till next time!

Issue 2.5 now in stock!

Posted by Edmund on September 27th, 2010 in Super Meat Boy!

Issue 2.5 is finally in stock in the Super Meat Boy store!

Image

Issue 2.5 was a pax 2010 exclusive comic that was given out on the 1st day of the show. The comic is essentially an updated version of issue 2 + 8 new pages and cover.

Each comic comes signed by us and also comes with a super awesome SMB sticker!.

Supply's are limited!

Speaking of limited SMB merch, the tshirts in the shop are also very low. we only have L's and a few XL's left. I hope to reprint the old Dr.Fetus shirt on black closer to the pc release but wont have time till then.

Those of you looking for a hand out can follow us on twitter, every Friday we hold a contest where 5 people win free comics. We will also be giving out free copies of the game via twitter once it comes out on the 20th of Oct!

The Good News!

So tomorrow morning Super Meat Boy will have its 1st public showing at Pax! Not only will the 1st 3 chapters be playable at both the Pax10 booth and MS booth but Pax will also be giving out free SMB comics to the 1st 25k people who get into the convention!

The comic we printed for Pax is issue 2.5 and will feature 8 new pages as well as an awesome new cover. This issue will go on sale in our store next week, btw we recently put up dr fetus patches! (check out the store here).

The Bad News.

Tommy and i wont be able to make it to Pax due to totally crazy deadlines. it sucks big time not to be able to see you guys play the game and talk to everyone.. but finishing the game is a little more important, nothing personal.

The Good News.

Danny B and Jordan Fehr (Music & sound fx) will be stepping up and representing at the Pax10 booth! Please go talk with them about their popin tunes and creepy splat sounds! I believe Danny will also be part of a music pannel there, sadly im not sure what its called because im a horrible friend.

Anyway, thanks for all the recent love and attention and if your going to pax stop by and see what all the fuss is all about, you cant truly appreciate SMB till you've gone hands on with it.

I leave you with our oldish, but only current Trailer. More current trailers are comin!



Dtiod also posted teaser info on the mysterious xbla exclusive chapter called "Teh Internets" Check it out.
