Team Meat’s Edmund McMillen revealed some new nuggets of info today regarding Super Meat Boy: The Game’s new iPhone game. Though still very early in development, he made it clear that this is intended to be a “game” through and through, with high difficulty and no easy way out.
The team’s goal is to create a game from the ground up with solid touch screen controls and no way to “buy” yourself out of a challenge.
The new screenshot on the left showcases the level select menu of the game. For those worried there aren’t enough levels for his grand vision, he elaborated further:
