User-level portal coming to Steam version of Super Meat Boy
Get ready for 200+ new levels and a potentially infinite supply as Team Meat prepares to launch Super Meat World, an automated portal for user-created Super Meat Boy levels.
The developers have been talking about its release, and fielding various questions, on their twitter account. Super Meat World will be Steam exclusive and the launch is “days away.”
All levels uploaded will have a fun factor and difficulty rating, so as to “weed out the crap”; and there’s an interesting sounding ‘Enter The Unknown’ feature which will take a random selection of highly rated user levels and compile them into a chapter for you to play.
Great news for PC owners, but the Xbox LIVE Arcade release isn’t being left out entirely. Team Meat say there’s a 40+ level update coming “in the next few weeks.”
Mac/Linux ports will apparently be underway soon too. The Mac one will be released via Steamplay, meaning anybody with the PC version on Steam will get a Mac copy free.
The only thing Tim loved more than Super Meat Boy were the swearwords he was able to invent while playing it. Read his review, here.
