Train2Game Super Meat Boy Forever

Team Meat is proud to reveal that it’s long, long awaited sequel to 2010’s runaway platforming hit Super Meat Boy is finally nigh!

That’s right, Super Meat Boy Forever is coming for us all on the Nintendo Switch eShop, alongside its PC counterpart on the Epic Games Store, on December 23rd, where it will cost $19.99, though there is a 10% pre-order discount bringing it to $17.99. It’s a holiday miracle! PlayStation and Xbox versions will follow approximately one month later.

This much anticipated sequel also moves the Meat Boy saga forward, as Meat Boy and his partner Bandage Girl have had a child, Nugget, who has unfortunately been kidnapped by the sinister stillborn psychopath, Dr. Fetus (I hate that guy!). So now it’s up to Meat Boy, Bandage Girl, and some surprising new characters in the Meat Boy Cinematic Universe, to rescue the kidnapped child.


In the time since we saw him last, Meat Boy has been hitting the gym and he now packs a punch with an oversized, Battletoads-esque right fist that packs a mean whollup! Combined with new slide and plummet maneuvers, Meat Boy is more agile than ever!

What’s better than playing through Super Meat Boy Forever once? The answer is simple: Playing through Super Meat Boy Forever several times and having new levels to play each time! Levels are randomly generated and each time the game is completed the option to replay the game appears and generates a whole new experience by presenting different levels with their own unique secret locations. We’ve handcrafted literally thousands of levels for players to enjoy and conquer. You can replay Super Meat Boy Forever from start to finish several times before ever seeing a duplicate level. It is truly a remarkable feat of engineering and a monumental example of ignoring the limits of rational game design and production.

To commemorate Super Meat Boy Forever coming to Nintendo Switch, PowerA has made a limited run of an officially licensed Enhanced Wireless Controller for Nintendo Switch featuring Meat Boy, which you can pre-order today at PowerA.com or on December 16th at Amazon.com for $49.99 / £39.99 / €49.99.

Super Meat Boy was a massive success that changed my life forever and people had been clamoring for a sequel for ages,” said Team Meat co-founder and programmer Tommy Refenes. “But I didn’t just want to deliver more of the same and call it a day. Meat Boy deserved more than that. I wanted to rebuild Meat Boy from the ground up, in a way that would offer an entirely new experience that still hits all the same kinetic, addictive notes as its predecessor. I know Super Meat Boy Forever took forever to make but we’re confident that it was worth the wait.”

Train2Game News Costume Quest 2 announced

Costume Quest 2Midnight City, indie label of Majesco Entertainment Company, will publish Double Fine Productions’ first big sequel, Costume Quest 2, coming to PC and consoles.

In Double Fine’s triumphant return to Auburn Pines, our candy-crazed crusaders Wren and Reynold must once again protect Halloween from untold horrors, and grown-ups! Your favorite trick-or-treaters will come armed with a new batch of costumes they wear to transform into giant super powered fantasy Hallowarriors. Fans of the original can look forward to a sweet upgraded battle system and a story that is unmistakably Double Fine.

“For the last couple of years,” said Tim Schafer, Creative Director of Double Fine Productions, “Whenever Halloween came around, I felt like something was missing. No matter how many pumpkins I carved, apples I bobbed, or candy I ate, it just couldn’t fill the big spooky hole inside of me. But then I realized what was missing: I needed more Costume Quest. And also, I really wanted a T-Shirt with glowing skulls on it.”

“It’s not every day that you’re able to work with talent like Double Fine,” said Casey Lynch, VP of Publishing at Midnight City. “The opportunity to partner with one of the most beloved, well-established studios in the indie scene along with one of the most brilliant teams in development represents a sea change for games publishing. We’re moving into a brand new middle that’s taking shape in the widening gap between word of mouth indie and triple A.”

Costume Quest 2 join Midnight City’s growing roster of indie titles alongside handcrafted puzzler The Bridge, the infamous madness-inducing Slender: The Arrival, and innovative minimalist e-sport VIDEOBALL.

Train2Game News: Dungeon Defenders 2

Dungeon Defenders 2Trendy Entertainment, creators of the critically acclaimed tower defense title Dungeon Defenders, today announced it has hit the reset button in the development of its highly anticipated sequel, Dungeon Defenders II, removing the MOBA-elements and instead focusing on what fans really want to see-the evolution of the action tower defense genre.

Scheduled for soft launch this spring, Dungeon Defenders II is a roleplaying and tower defense title that vastly improves upon the foundations of the first game. A core pillar of Trendy’s new project is getting fans directly involved in how they evolve and develop the sequel. This recent shift in direction is just one example of how Trendy plans to incorporate their community’s feedback into Dungeon Defenders II.

“We’ve been listening very closely to our community, getting feedback from fans of the first game on what they want to see in a sequel, and we realized we needed a shift in our development focus,” said Philip Asher, Marketing Director at Trendy Entertainment. “We had strayed from making the kind of game fans wanted and the kind of game we wanted to develop. So, we’ve nixed the MOBA-style of gameplay and other ‘extra’ features we were talking about and instead are making the sequel we all want to play. We’re improving everything we loved about Dungeon Defenders, one step at a time. First we’re going through the core gameplay experience; injecting more meaningful decisions and moments into the minute to minute gameplay that you’ll want to share with your friends. Then, in late October we’re going to kick off our first major community initiative to get fans involved in the development of the game, and start working with them to make the roleplaying and item systems as satisfying as possible.”

In Dungeon Defenders II, the land of Etheria has been invaded by the Old Ones and players must rally, alone or with friends, against the invasion.. The game features brand new combat and tower placement systems that synchronize the roleplaying, action, and tower defense elements of the first game for more visceral and strategic gameplay. New defense and ability interactions make for exciting, emergent gameplay and new environmental traps increase variety and strategic planning throughout each level in the game. The team is also working on a completely new mission structure and content release strategy which will revolve around the way the community wants to play.

“Imagine dousing a crowd of enemies with oil and then the Apprentice’s flameburst tower hitting one of them with a flame bolt, lighting them all up! Or a trap launching an orc into the sky, only to be frozen and then shatter after crashing to the ground. We’re creating these synergistic systems as a way to allow players to discover and share new ways to play the game: whether it’s finding a new piece of gear that creates a whole new defensive strategy to a map or improving defenses in a way that makes you completely rethink your entire setup, we want the combat and roleplaying elements to shape how you defend Etheria.” said Daniel Haddad, Lead Content Designer.

Dungeon Defenders II is currently in development for PC, Mac & Linux, and scheduled for soft launch as a free-to-play title next Spring.
