Announcement: Team Meat Introduces Their New Game, MEW-GENICS

A game news article

by Nick Boisson



Over on their blog, Team Meat (Edmund McMillenn and Tommy Refenes) have announced their brand new intellectual property following the success of Super Meat Boy. The game is called Mew-Genics.

Now, very little was said about the game and nothing is shown in the announcment save for this adorable image of a cat with a conjoined head attached to its own. Here is what McMillenn had to say about the project:

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.

Two things in that statement grab me as interesting. The first, "randomly generated". What does he mean? What aspect of the game is going to be randomly generated? The environments, the characters, the plots, the look of each freaky cat, ALL OF IT? It's probably merely the first option, but I'm interested to see what happens.

The second is "Mew-Genics is by far the strangest project I've ever worked on". The guy who made Super Meat BoyThe Binding of Isaac and Spewer believes that this is the strangest game he's worked on?! Obviously, this is something I need to check out!

With this game being their next project, that means that Super Meat Boy: The Game -- the iOS and tablet version of Super Meat Boy -- will be pushed back. That said, I know absolutely nothing of this game, but I cannot wait to play it!
