"one of the best platformers I've ever played." -Joystiq 4.5/5
"SMB is easily one of the best games available on Xbox Live Arcade and should be considered one of the finest 2D platformers ever made."
8 days to go!
So this March after GDC i had the honor of being documented and interviewed for an upcoming feature length documentary by Blink Works called"Indie Game: The Movie". The video above was a teaser trailer Blink Works did for the movie in hopes people would donate to help fund the film.
They were asking for 15k using kickstarter, but acquired 20K in donations the 1st 2 days of asking for funds. But if you still feel like donating to help further development you can donated a few bucks here.
They also released another video showing my wife Danielle making a meat boy plush...
If you look close you can see a few NG related things laying around (note the mindchamber patch! REPRESENT!)
Anyway i thought id share that, Tommy and i are only 2 of quite a few devs they will be interviewing and with a trailer like that i really think this could be something quite amazing.
what do you think?
NG's own Meat Boy is going head to head with other mainstream xbla games in this mountain dew contest on gametrailers.com.

Remember way back in the day when you loved a game so much that you
would buy ANYTHING that had to do with it? Remember Easter, when you
had to go to your Great Aunts house to celebrate with the family, and
you knew you would be bored in the car and the only thing you could
bring was a crappy handheld version of some game you loved (for me it
was Megaman 2) and you had no choice but to play it in the car and at
her house because she was born in like the 1890's and didn't even have
a VCR? Those were great days...and now, we at Team Meat, are giving
you the ability to do that ALL OVER AGAIN ON YOUR IPHONE, IPOD AND
EXPENSIVE GIANT IPOD (IPAD).
Super Meat Boy Handheld
is all the branding of Super Meat Boy, without
the actual gameplay or art from Super Meat Boy...and all for ONLY A
DOLLAR. Enjoy two distinct game modes. In Game A, you have to race and
wall jump past saws to save your lady love Bandage Girl!!! In Game B,
you have to race past falling needles to save your lady love, Bandage
Girl!!! Super Meat Boy Handheld also features a mute button, and a
button that when pressed shows you a high score (not your high score,
just the highest score you can get).
Super Meat Boy Handheld is available on the iTunes AppStore for only
$0.99 (THAT'S NOT NINETY NINE DOLLARS YOU SILLY PEOPLE). Pick it up
today, brag to your friends, and support Super Meat Boy!!
Super Meat Boy interview at GDC (the game play is old).
