So a few months back Tommy and i got together to do an awesome SMB commentary track, we tried our best to achieve that and THIS is what came out.
I hope you all enjoyed watching that as much as we did making it, its been a crazy year and we are both truly honored that so many of you love our baby as much as we do, and that so many of you would actually listen to us make crude and inappropriate jokes for an hour while someone plays our game.
Big thanks to Man vs. Game (his name is Jason, i think) for sending us that full run video, and we also need to show some love to Blink Works, who let us use their recording equipment and editing this video to make it have the illusion of a professional commentary video, we love you all.
Tommy and i are going to try and do an Ask Us Anything on Reddit soon.. not sure when but soon.. so be on the look out!.
As those of you who follow us on twitter know, we have recently added 2 new (and awesome) Super Meat Boy items to our shop.
The 1st is personally one of my favorite items yet, a metal bloody saw blade keychain/charm/zipper pull. Very happy with how it turned out, each Saw comes with a SMB sticker as well. Our stock is getting a bit low on these and once they are gone they wont be reprinted.
The 2nd is the long awaited Super Meat Boy Vinyl Figurine! Each figure is signed by us and come with both a meat boy and dr. fetus sticker. The figure stands about 8 inches tall, and is a lot larger then you'd expect, there are only around 100 of these signed figures in stock and like the saws wont be restocked after they are gone.. so i think this is what some might call a collectors item, you should probably buy it!
And finally last on my list, we are happy to announce that the 2nd super meat boy rock band track has launched today on the rock band network! Betus Blues (retro remix) is the 2nd track by the great Danny B to hit the rock band network, its amazing. go get it!
Holy god.. that trailer makes me relive so many horrible memories.. yet is just so awesome.
For those of you who dont know, Tommy and i were both documented by a tiny 2 person team called Blink Works on and off for about a year during the middle-end of development of Super Meat Boy. We met them at GDC the year we lost at the IGF.. they approached us after the loss and told us they were thinking about doing a short documentary about indie games. They had been talking to many indie devs and wanted to do something that could show the world the life of an indie game designer, we agreed and they followed us back to santa cruz. For the next 9+ months of development our lives were peppered with their cameras and almost sickeningly kind and gentle nature (they are Canadian).
It was inspiring to have them around through development, i felt like there were so many parallels to our projects and it was just awesome to have a few new friends to help share in the highs and (very low) lows of the super meat boy journey.
Now i cant tell you much about the whole film because i haven't seen it yet, but i believe it focuses on the development of the games shown in the trailer and possibly another, as you can see, shit gets real many times (most notably our xbla launch).
Blink Works hopes to launch the movie in the fall, and even do a small tour around the US and Canada screening the film.. but to do this they need your help! The Indie Game: The Movie team is asking for a bit of a kick start to help finish up and take the film on tour, so if you appreciate SMB, FEZ, Braid, indie games or games in general, please throw them a few bucks (if you donate $15 you get a digital copy! $35 gets you the physical edition!).
Get all the info on the both editions and more HERE
Anyway, please share this trailer and spread the word.
cant wait to do commentary with Tommy on the special edition! :)
