Team Meat is currently showing off Super Meat Boy Forever on the show floor at PAX Prime in Seattle. According to reports, it’s an endless runner set in the Super Meat Boy universe, controlling the meaty protagonist, with buzzsaws and the like to avoid. The game is set for tablets along with PC.
There are a few questions left unanswered: one, is this a high score endless runner or just a level-based auto-runner, a la Bit.Trip Run ($2.99)? Second, is A Voyeur for September a real game, or just a joke teaser for Super Meat Boy Forever, since the two titles are anagrams for each other? And third: will this actually come out? Plenty of games from Team Meat have been teased for mobile, but none have been made playable in quite this form.
Update: Joystiq has a quick vine of Super Meat Boy Forever in action, check it out:
If it does actually make it out, it will be welcome to finally have Super Meat Boy in some form on mobile. The game has influenced many challenging platformers before it that have eventually found their way to mobile, such as League of Evil ($2.99), Commander Pixman ($2.99) and so much more. Even in an endless runner form, playing a real Meat Boy game on iOS and not just Super Meat Boy Handheld would just be symbolic. Let’s hope it comes out soon.
