Exclusive interview with Team Meat’s Edmund McMillen

[WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS IMAGES THAT MAY BE OFFENSIVE TO SOME VIEWERS. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.]

Last week, I got the chance to catch up with Edmund McMillen, co-creator of Super Meat Boy. I asked him how he felt about the critical reception that the game has received so far, about our chances for a Super Meat Boy 2, and what he’s working on right now. I also confront him about my one complaint about Super Meat Boy. It got tense.

His responses may shock you. There is also some potentially disturbing images of animals being slaughtered here, so watch out for that too. All around, this video isn’t for the faint of heart. I hope that those of you with a strong stomach enjoy it. The rest of you, please don’t watch it.

Not kidding.
