Exclusive: New character announced for Super Meat Boy PC

1:13 AM on 11.07.2010 // Jonathan Holmes

So, in case you missed it, we did a charity live stream of Super Meat Boy today on Public Access Destructoid's channel on Justin.tv. We planned on doing it for just a few hours, but then we ended up going all day and into the night. We helped raise $2,000, and we're all incredibly grateful to everyone who contributed.

That said, it's still not too late to donate. Here's how the charity works. Danny B., (the composer for Super Meat Boy), is donating the proceeds from the sales of all his soundtracks to Multiple Sclerosis research. Danny's sister Christy (seen above) suffers from MS, so this whole thing is very personal, both for Danny and for us at Dtoid.

I'm so overwhelmed by the whole experience that I almost forgot to tell you the news part of this news post. Edmund McMillen (co-creator of Super Meat Boy) promised that once we got to $2,000, that he'd reveal an new character for the PC version of Super Meat Boy. Hit the jump for the character reveal, and a little description of who they are and how they'll be implemented in the game.

 

It's Captain Viridian from VVVVVV!

There's no news yet on exactly how the Captain will play in the game, but I bet his gravity flipping ways will be involved in some way. If you haven't checked the game out, you should do so ASAP. There is a free demo available through the game's official site. It's incredibly clever and fun to play.

Edmund also told us that the creator of VVVVVV is making some special VVVVVV themed levels for Super Meat Boy PC. I'm 99% sure that I heard Edmund say that these levels will be made with the game's PC exclusive level editor, but don't quote me on that. I'm sure we'll be hearing more from Edmund about it soon.

Also news; it sucks to have your armpit licked by strange man.
