Says Edmund McMillen of the first work-in-progress shot of his WiiWare remake of Newgrounds flash game Meat Boy (WiiWare at left, original on the right):
Heres the 1st shot of super meat boy side by side with the original flash version.
Im currently going through and remaking the forest chapter, while Tommy gets the tile engine in place. The goal is to have a playable demo by June 1st to show at E3 and so far that’s looking very possible.
That background is a mockup (imagine more depth and lighting effects in the finished version), but it can give you a basic idea of the direction im going with it, that direction being “crap your pants awesome” if that hasn’t been apparently clear by now.
McMillen also reveals that he went in for a developer interview to be published on Nintendo’s official wii.com site, though he adds, in warning to all future indie devs: “Were you guys aware that wearing blood stained aprons to a Nintendo interview was frowned upon… i wasn’t sent that memo.”
I sleep to the sounds of squrils making love to buzz saws [Super Meat boy!]
