Next Team Meat game announced, Mew-Genics

#1 Posted by L44 (575 posts) -

Mew-Genics is by far the strangest project I've ever worked on.. and that's saying something. Tommy and i are very happy with how development has been going on it and decided that Mew-Genics will be the next official Team Meat game. We don't want to spoil too much here, but we can say the game will be randomly generated, strange and involve cats.

We are moving quite fast on it and should be able to start talking about platforms, more gameplay details and screen shots soon.

and SMB fans need not worry, the new Super Meat Boy (SMB:TG) is still in dev, just on hold till we squeeze this little kitten out of our loins

I'm keen.

Why do I think of Fart Cat when I read this?

The binding of kitties?

This was my first thought as well.

This was the second thing I thought once I saw the picture.

I've dug their previous work so I'm optimistically optimistic!

Considering how strange most of Ed's projects are, this game is going to be insanely weird.

What has science done, and why does science continue to do it.

Wait didn't they say that they weren't going to do a sequel to Meat Boy?

It's not a sequel. It's a mobile version.

Yeah, I thought so too, very strange to hear about it. Super Meat Boy is an absolutely amazing game, but I'm not sure if I want or need a sequel.

Oh alright, "the new SMB is still in dev" confused me as well.

What's up with Edmund and tumorous face growths with faces and stuff? Anyway, it's Team Meat, so I'm in.

Oh god... playing that on a mobile device sounds frightening.

This is the image on the official site, there are 9 cats with halos over their heads so one could assume that the mechanics of the game will somehow involve cats dying and expending their lives? Who knows, I hope that one of the cats is named Janus.

If this leads to a sequel/DLC about Navy cats called "Mew-tiny on the Bounty", I will be quite pleased.

This is wonderful.

Guppy =^__^=

Is this a play on the word 'eugenics' or is it just me?

#19 Posted by Cynically_Happy (51 posts) -

@WalkerTR77: Given the developer it's safe to assume it is, and it's just the best possible name.

Guppy! :)

Seems like it. Perhaps you have to form some kind of Aryan cat race to resemble the cat in the middle. Who knows.

Well they're building it from the ground up with mobile controls in mind. It's not just a straight up port.

@L44: Team Meat and cats. OH MY GOD SOLD

This isn't the Pokemon side story that delves into the shutdown of the Mew Project where thousands of failed Mew clones were euthanized?

#25 Posted by Pop (2651 posts) -

YES YES YES! I can't wait to find out the gameplay! I am so excited, I didn't know they're making a new SMB too. I am so happy!

#26 Posted by takayamasama (440 posts) -

Ohhh god I can not wait.

Also holy shit! I was unaware of a new Super Meat Boy in the works! Double awesome!

Eugenics is selective breeding of a species, usually used when applied to humans. Such as when Hitler tried to kill all the Jews.

@Dagbiker: I looked up the term some time after posting that. I was aware of the term eugenics but had forgotten its meaning.

I didn't realize this was an old thread until I posted it.
