FeatureSuper Meat Boy Forever and the return of Team Meat

Tommy Refenes on mobiles, meat and the studio's future without Ed McMillen.

Nearly six years ago, Super Meat Boy co-creator Tommy Refenes prototyped a mobile version of the game on his laptop, working in a hotel room just before GDC. It was rough and early, but as he worked the game grew from the idea of a straight port to one designed - maybe even improved - from the original.

Let's get the bad news out of the way first: Super Meat Boy co-creator and character designer Edmund McMillen, the burly bearded man made famous by his starring role in Indie Game: The Movie, is not involved in the sequel, Super Meat Boy Forever. Having gone independent to work on such titles as The Binding of Isaac, The End is Nigh, and the upcoming RPG The Legend of Bum-bo, the Super Meat Boy saga has fallen to his former partner, Tommy Refenes, to resurrect after a seven-plus year absence.
