Team Meat have formally announced the little touch-controlled platforming project they've been investigating for the past couple of months, unveiling Super Meat Boy: The Game - an all-new platformer designed specifically for touch devices.
"So as some of you know, we have been playing with the idea of porting SMB on the iphone for some time," said Edmund McMillen.
"Sadly, there was no way of doing this without the game becoming a pile of garbage, Super Meat Boy is a twitch platformer with precision controls, there was no way in hell this would work on a touch screen with buttons all over it, Super Meat Boy isn't a game we want to make a sub-par version of just to cash in...
"So, we decided to totally remake the whole game instead, from the ground up!"
McMillen warned that this wouldn't be the Super Meat Boy fans are necessarily used to, adding that the game would also not be "a shitty port of an existing game with non tactile buttons spread all over the screen blocking the players view and making for frustrating controls."
The team also assured fans that the game won't just be iOS exclusive.
