Whats up, I’m Tommy Refenes. It’s possible you’ll keep in mind me from such video games as Tremendous Meat Boy and Tremendous Meat Boy Perpetually. I’m delighted to have the ability to inform you that the Meat Boy universe is returning to PlayStation later this 12 months within the type of a model new title referred to as Dr. Fetus’ Imply Meat Machine!
Meat Boy has had sufficient video games (for now). Now it’s time for Dr. Fetus to be a star. Dr. Fetus’ Imply Meat Machine takes place proper after the occasions of Tremendous Meat Boy Perpetually (proper after the ending, earlier than the publish credit scene, to be actual). Dr. Fetus needs to make clones of Meat Boy and he must weed out all the crappy clones from the gene pool to get pure, excellent, killable Meat Boys. I’m wondering what Dr. Fetus would do with a by no means ending provide of Meat Boys…hmmm…in all probability a query for one more time.
Buzzsaws, lasers, missiles, and different hazards
What this implies in observe is a Puyo Puyo-style match-four puzzler with a novel hardcore twist, courtesy of the nefarious Dr. Fetus’ devious contraptions. As you’re attempting to get your color-coded clones to the underside of the display screen and construct combos, you’ll need to take care of buzzsaws, missiles and a number of different hazards primed to destroy your clones in case you don’t play with the precision that the Tremendous Meat Boy sequence has at all times demanded. In different phrases, what we’re doing with Dr Fetus’ Imply Meat Machine Machine is bringing the hardcore problem Meat Boy is thought for to create a one-of-a-kind mix of puzzle and motion gameplay.
The genesis of this sport lies in a long-lasting relationship between Crew Meat and our pals at Headup. We’ve labored collectively for nearly 12 years in numerous capacities and we love them. So after they approached us with this concept for a match-four puzzle sport, we had been fairly busy with launching Tremendous Meat Boy Perpetually however after that was out we checked out their pitch and prototype and fell in love once more. We merged their design and programming expertise – primarily Niko Panagiotopoulos and Mark Aldrup – with our artwork and design expertise and now now we have this wickedly enjoyable and delightful puzzle sport that we by no means would have even thought of making if not for his or her superb prototype and want to make one thing new and superior.
It’s time to get pleasure from dying once more
The sport has over 100 hand-crafted ranges stuffed with hazards and traps that may check your puzzle thoughts alongside together with your finger reflexes. It’s a sport within the Meat Boy Universe, so anticipate to die – again and again. When you could have lastly died sufficient your expertise can be second nature and you’ll begin beating ranges with no extra effort than taking a single, easy breath. You’ll really feel achieved. You’ll really feel…complete. At that time you’ll then need to battle a boss which can kill you time and again. You’ll know dying. It’s lots of enjoyable and fairly cute too!
In case you’re already a fan of Meat Boy, first, thanks and, second, there’s going to be loads in Dr. Fetus’ Imply Meat Machine to please you. We’ve bought an entire bunch of acquainted Tremendous Meat Boy and Tremendous Meat Boy Perpetually places just like the picturesque Forest, the Hospital, and Salt Manufacturing facility, all with dazzling backgrounds, animations and cutscenes created by the unique Tremendous Meat Boy Perpetually artists. We’ve additionally bought an unimaginable soundtrack created by the gifted Ridiculon.
It’s been enjoyable to see Meat Boy heading in a brand new path in collaboration with a staff who confirmed us a chance for the sequence that had by no means crossed our minds. What’s come out of it’s a sport that exists in a well-known style, however on the similar time is like no different sport in that style. The transfer to inject the hardcore meaty DNA of Tremendous Meat Boy right into a match-four puzzler is one which I feel few of you’ll have anticipated (heck, we didn’t anticipate it when Headup first purchased us the concept!). However belief me, it was a loopy sufficient concept to work and I can’t anticipate you all to have the ability to try to survive Dr. Fetus’ twisted check chambers your self when the sport hits PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 later this 12 months.
