I know the first game has just released onto it’s first of three planned platforms, but Edmund is already chatting up about the sequel to their already smash hit game: Super Meat Boy. And when I say “chatting up” I really mean shooting down as he has confirmed that neither he nor Tommy wants to create a sequel to their beloved franchise and possibly tarnish its image.
Here are the reasons given by Edmund:
- It’s bad to over explain and over develop characters like the ones in super meat boy.
- We feel like we did it right the 1st time.
- The book is left open. (They, and PC users can expand without making a sequel)
- It would mean we are just doing it for money.
Of course Edmund goes a little more in depth with his reasons and I recommend checking them out if only for the fact that you can see that these two guys are stand up developers who are more interested in creating a unique experience than cashing in at every opportunity.
Of course, that said, Super Meat Boy is already kind of a “sequel” to the original Meat Boy flash game. Check and mate Mr. Edmund.
