Super Meat Boy oozes his way onto XBLA next week, and the developers are talking to us about all the details: gameplay, indie character cameos, level editing and just how crazy difficult the game really is.
RADAR: Super Meat Boy!
XBLA, PC, Wii
Super Meat Boy’s gotten a ton of hype recently, and it can definitely live up to it – it’s a fun, funny, twitchy platformer with tons of content and a vibe all its own.
Developers Ed McMillen and Tommy Refenes stopped in via Skype to talk to us all about SMB: where the idea came from, what it was like to make the jump from flash to console games, and just how ridiculously difficult it really is.
