Fans of Super Meat Boy are in for a treat with the upcoming spin-off game, Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine. Developed by Thunderful, Headup, and Team Meat, the game is a Puyo Puyo and Tetris-like puzzle game set within the Super Meat Boy universe.
Players will take on over 100 hand-crafted levels filled with deadly traps such as chainsaws and missiles, all designed by Dr. Fetus. The game’s story takes place right after Super Meat Boy Forever, with Dr. Fetus collecting a DNA sample of Meat Boy to create clones. Players must help Dr. Fetus do away with the imperfect clones until he finds the perfect one.
Mark Aldrup, Headup Head of Development, expressed excitement for the collaboration with Team Meat, saying that it allowed them to capture the hardcore essence of Meat Boy and bring it to a completely new genre.
Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S in 2023. While Super Meat Boy and Super Meat Boy Forever were hardcore platformers, this game is taking on an entirely different genre, promising a unique and challenging experience for players.
In Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine, players will use their puzzle-solving skills to match the colored meatballs together, making them disappear and freeing up space on their side of the screen. The game also includes a two-player mode, allowing players to compete against each other locally or online.
The addition of deadly traps adds an extra layer of challenge and strategy to the game, as players will have to avoid them while also trying to match the meatballs. With over 100 hand-crafted levels, players can expect plenty of content to keep them engaged for hours.
Dr. Fetus has always been a fan-favorite villain in the Super Meat Boy universe, and it’s exciting to see him take center stage in his own game. The collaboration between Thunderful, Headup, and Team Meat is sure to result in a unique and enjoyable experience for fans of both puzzle games and Super Meat Boy.
