Ogmo from 'Jumper' confirmed playable in Super Meat Boy
If you haven't played Jumper by Matt Thorson, I'd highly recommend it -- partially because it'll make you more excited about today's Super Meat Boy news, and partially because it's a spectacularly well-designed platformer.
Ogmo, Jumper's perpetually-perplexed protagonist, has joined the ranks of Commander Video, Flywrench, and Tim from Braid, according to an official SMB blog post. Of course, the post did go up on April Fool's Day, but this seems too believable and humdrum to be a hoax.
According to the Super Meat Boy blog, Ogmo comes equipped with a double-jump and his own Jumper-themed warp zone.
But none of that is relevant, really. What matters -- what really, truly matters -- is that I FRIGGIN' CALLED THIS LAST YEAR.
UPDATE: It may also be relevant that the SMB blog post mentions the game coming out on "all consoles." Setup email comments
