Remember when we reported that developer Team Meat was considering making an iOS version of Super Meat Boy? According to their blog, the considering is over, and development has begun. Check out the first screenshot below.
The blog post goes on to reiterate much of what they said on Twitter originally: that the game is not a direct port of the existing PC/XBLA game, and that it won’t use onscreen touch buttons. They also add that the upcoming game will use all new art and audio, and that it’ll be a “feature length platformer specifically designed for touch devices.” They also specify iPhone as the platform, whereas they hadn’t before.
If the resulting game is half as good as the original Super Meat Boy, it will be one to keep your eye out for. We’ll keep you posted as more information comes to light.
