We've got a little good news, bummer news thing for you this morning. In a recent blog post on the official Team Meat site, the studio announced a brand new game called Mew-genics and confirmed that it'll be its next release. Here comes the bummer: this means that the newer Super Meat Boy for iPhone, iPad, and PC has kinda been put on hold, as the two-man studio works on Mew-genics.

Team Meat appears to be still working out what platforms Mew-genics will see a release on, but here's a few other details for you in the meantime: it'll definitely have cats, it's the "strangest project" the studio has ever worked on, and it'll be "randomly generated," according to the studio.

That's a promo image. There's another on the game's official web site, a place we imagine will see the addition of more content as Team Meat fleshes out the game.

In case you're worried about SMB on iOS, Team Meat has this to say: "and SMB fans need not worry, the new Super Meat Boy is still in dev, just on hold till we squeeze this little kitten out of our loins." Will do!

    or maybe they are announcing random games for iOS that will never be actually made, just for the lulz.
    Knowing their history with Mac/iOS, that would not be difficult to believe.

    Estuve leyendo y al parecer la guía de bonderlands 2 filtra bonderlands legends para ios que parece que saldrá este mismo mes aunque no la compañía no haya dicho nada al respecto.

      Si, no hablo español. Soy los bueno es Team Meat. El dólar es really doll hair.

    If this experiment helps Super Meat Boy future iOS version to be better, great! Will buy it too

    SMB = Super Mario Bros. You can't use it for Super Meat Boy

      Oh my gosh--yes it was a great classic game but its been 30 years, can we move on a little bit?  I swear some people worship that game a little too much--like its sacred above all else.  "Thou shalt not take the name of Mario in vain!"  I love Mario as much as anyone but really!  It was a game about a magic plummer who eats mushrooms to become gigantic...

      SMB in an article about Super Meat Boy means Super Meat Boy...

        Unless it's comparing the game mechanics of SMB to Super Meat Boy...

      • ducksFANjason

        I don't think anyone was "worshipping" Super Mario Bros... Metalsquid was just pointing out (rightfully so) that there are common initialisms dedicated to certain games, and once they've been recognized, you shouldn't throw them around for another similarly initialed title else you risk confusing your audience. It's generally accepted that SMB is Super Mario Bros and therefore the devs shouldn't have used it.

        Does it bother me personally? No. Was I confused by it? No. But it's just bad taste to use an already established initialism because if multiple different ones catch on, how will anyone know which game one is referencing to?

    That's true, but he just did! I love super meat boy but I'm excited to see them come up with unique ideas as well. Bring it on.

  • Eegah

    Eh honestly I bought SMB twice so I'm looking forward to some new IP.

    Not that I wouldn't mind some new platforming mind, but I still need to finish off LoE/LoE2/Lemonade and probably a couple others so it's not like I can't wait.

    Looking forward to it... just hope they can get it done a bit sooner (then Super Meat Boy). I watched the INDY video of them... and they were pretty STRESSED OUT... 

  • MrAlbum

    I played The Binding of Isaac, and THAT was the weirdest... THING... I had ever played. This is gonna be WEIRDER?!


    I'm scared now *flees*

  • HelperMonkey

    I just saw these guys in "Indie Game: The Movie." They take creating these insane games VERY seriously. Too much stress for me. I'll stick to playing games rather than making them.

    • MidianGTX

      Yeah, it turned them into dicks.

        How so? What I saw was two people working there ass off to bring their vision of a game to life and the sweat and tears it took to happen. When he was watching people playing the game and having fun it brought a tear to his eye.

        If the making of that movie changed anything about them or what they do it was worth it for that movie. I can see alot of the time they poured into being apart of the movie may have skewed some perceptions around. I don't think they should be penalized for having their game be a success. If anything it showed they deserve to be who they are and continue doing what they want to do.
