More On: Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine

A new game in the Super Meat Boy universe has just been announced. This time it’s featuring Meat Boy’s archnemesis, Dr. Fetus. Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine is an upcoming match-4 puzzler with a unique twist. “With buzzsaws, missiles and a host of other deadly hazards cooked up by Dr. Fetus in play, Mean Meat Machine brings the hardcore challenge Super Meat Boy is known for to this one-of-a-kind blend of puzzle and action gameplay.” There will be familiar Super Meat Boy and Super Meat Boy Forever locations like the picturesque forest, the hospital, and salt factory. Backgrounds and animations created by the original Super Meat Boy and Super Meat Boy Forever artists will be here too, as well as a soundtrack by RIDICULON. There are over 100 hand-crafted levels filled with traps and hazards to clear, and boss fights at the end of each world.

One of the more exciting pieces to note is that, “Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine takes place right after the events of Super Meat Boy Forever. After meticulously analyzing Meat Boy, the nefarious Dr. Fetus now has all the data he needs to create the perfect Meat Boy clone! There’s just one problem: The DNA sample he’s collected isn’t a perfect specimen, which in turn yields some…less than perfect clones. Dr. Fetus’ solution is to create a bunch of ruthless test chambers to weed out the crap clones from the good ones.”

Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine is coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC sometime in 2023.
