Happy news for fans of Gish, Blast Miner, Tri-achnid, Aether and the just-IGF-nominated Coil: Edmund McMillen has announced via his blog that this year will see the release of a deluxe version of his Newgrounds hit Meat Boy on PC and Mac.
McMillen also teases a third “secret release platform,” but a quick jog over to the game’s new home site reveals that the game will also see a port to the Wii, presumably Nintendo’s downloadable service WiiWare.
The deluxe version will be programmed by Pillowfort dev Tommy Refenes, who was behind last year’s excellent Goo! (not to be confused with 2D Boy’s
World of…), and original Meat Boy developer Jon McEntee.
You can play the original Meat Boy here, and its recently released 70 level fan-submitted expansion pack here — it’s fun and sadistically brutal stuff, something akin to a more visceral take on N+‘s super-jump platforming set in an auto-scrolling world.
