So ive obviously been slacking when it comes to updating the blog.. i think we will have something automated from our twitter soon enough as well as a whole site revamp in the coming weeks, but for now ill play a little catch up and post a months worth of notable twitter updates.

http://twitpic.com/zobmg - Near final cover image for SMB issue #2 coming out at GDC!

http://twitpic.com/zobtw - Also Here's the process of creation for that cover for those interested.

http://bit.ly/7pm8Zp - SMB road to the IGF interview (gamasutra)

http://bit.ly/5htp4w - 1st impressions of the IGF build of SMB, and new screen shots of the build (nintendo life)

http://bit.ly/dz8TD - 6 new SMB screen shots showing ch2, new retro levels and mechanics like fans and keys!

http://bit.ly/7Hj9kK - Super meat boy comics are now on sale! (finally). these comics are limited, not that many are left. (bonus surprises)

More infoz....

-SMB will easily have over 10 hours of gameplay for the expert gamer and WAYYYY beyond that for the average one.

-Flywrench will be a playable character in Super Meat Boy!

-Due to the addition of 150 more levels and other extras SMB will be pushed back from the Q1 release date but not by a ton.

------

This month is going to be crazy, we will have ch3 finished and playable for GDC, the second Meat Boy comic printed out (its 20 pages!) new video footage will be posted showing the games 2nd chapter and boss in action as well as a very big announcement that should make a lot of you guys VERY happy.

its been a crazy month to start a hopefully equally crazy year! oh and we are still giving away free comics every Friday on twitter, so follow us!.

Every time I hear about SMB, I want it more and more... too bad it's being pushed back, but if the game will end up being better/longer as a result, then that's wonderful!

Any idea of when exactly it will be out?

Bluebaby responds:

it will be out later in the year, the goal is 3rd Q, you will find out why we needed an extra push in a few weeks :)

Look at his eyes, he's totally saying "The fuck is the mass effect?!?!? Taking my coverpage......".

But anyway, can't weight to use my wii for something other than a wifi paperweight.

i've also read the news about super meat boy in the biggest russian Game magazine "Igromania" and damn, it was really good! 4 pages of meat boys, Tims, Meat girls, Doc-Fetuses and Alien Hominids!

Bluebaby responds:

i wish i had a copy of that

I'm glad to see such progress with the game and that you get the much needed attention necessary for exposing the game (and you) for all to see. I hope the game becomes nothing less than a success, I think it is unquestionably a well deserved outcome for all the hard work you've done all those years as an indie developer. Man, I sort of almost envy you in a way =)
I wish you good luck with the project.

Bluebaby responds:

thanks a ton lonstar i really appriciate that

Awesome! Congratulations on all of the exposure mate, you really deserve it and I cant see how this is going to do anything but sell by the bucket loads! Just dont forget your roots, not that I can see that happening :)

I dont have a Wii so cant buy the game, but I ordered a comic, Im looking forward to having some of your artwork in my office to inspire me!

I am so pirat... <cough> getting this game when it comes out!

I kid, I kid. I will actually spend the necessary amount of dollars/pounds/euros/yens/<insert currency here> to buy the game, specially since you guys are releasing it on the PC!

And nice to see all the attention SMB is getting! But I hope that you guys aren't using the hype machine a little too early. After all, SMB still has a long way to go...

Oh, and I love the pics of both of you wearing those strikingly good looking sweaters! So 80s Bill Gates, just marvelous!

^_^

about SMB, is it better to get it on the wii or on the pc?

btw nice job getting on the cover of pc gamer!! cant wait for the game :D

Bluebaby responds:

technicaly it will look better on the pc, and steam will have achevements, and eventually an editor down the road.

but you might have other options as well

Bluebaby responds:

I left Cryptic Sea when things got rocky last year. NQ is in limbo right now, im not sure if/when ill work on it again.

Meat Boy is seriously one one of the best flash games ever made, I expect this from Super MEat Boy as well, if it is made of Flash of course.

Bluebaby responds:

super meat boy isnt made in flash.
