[Update: Some of you asked if Super Meat Boy: The Game will be an iOS exclusive. Official comment from Team Meat- "anything is possible.. but yeah its not exclusive at all"]

Here is some old news that been newly confirmed. What took so long for the confirmation? Between the chaos of Dtoid's dating site taking over the world, sifting through all the April Fool's jokes that went live that day, and interviewing Mutant Mudds developer Jools Watsham for Sup Holmes?, this one just got lost in the shuffle. That's not an excuse, just an explanation.

You can thank Lisanne Pajot and James Swirski (directors of Indie Game: The Movie) for reminding us that Super Meat Boy is coming to iOS is a newly imagined form. They re-announced the game at a recent screening of their film (expect an interview with the directors on Dtoid next week) and Meat Boy creator Edmund McMillen has gone on to restate that the news is legit. According to Edmund, Super Meat Boy on iOS "...will be a 100% new game that wont totally play like SMB, but will embody what SMB was at its core. New art, new music, new engine, and whole new look as well as a new take on the SMB story". He's calling it Super Meat Boy: The Game. It even has its own font!

Given Team Meat's past statements regarding the iOS marketplace, it was easy to think this was all a joke. I'm guessing that Super Meat Boy: The Game will end up being a hybrid between self-satire and an earnest effort to combine the strengths of Meat Boy concept and the iOS platform. Sounds good to me! We'll be keeping a close eye on SuperMeatBoy.com for further news on the game's development.

Strafe is the goriest, most realistic shooter of 1996

I am tempted to just post the email we got about Strafe (stylized as STRAFE®), because it is a masterpiece of videogame marketing. With phrases like "not for the faint of heart" and "we understand if our game is too real...more

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more
