Developer: Team Meat

Meat Boy and Bandage Girl have grown as a couple since 2010. It seems like only yesterday the two love birds were escaping from an exploding laboratory in the sky. Now it’s the current year, and they’ve welcomed their daughter Nugget into the world. Their peaceful days enjoying life as a family came to an abrupt end when Dr. Fetus beat the snot out of them with a rusty shovel, and kidnapped Nugget! Now it’s up to Meat Boy and Bandage Girl to rescue their daughter from a lunatic fetus in a jar that can only be described as an incel version of Tony Stark. Super Meat Boy Forever is the sequel to Super Meat Boy! This is a new experience that eclipses the original. Don’t stare directly at it unless you still have your eclipse glasses. 7200 individually handcrafted levels combine dynamically to give you a new challenge every single time you play. Seven thousand two hundred levels. They said we couldn’t do it, but we did. Who’s they? Don’t ask. They don’t like it when you ask. It’s hard, but fair. Nothing in life worth having comes easy. Just ask Dark Soulman. Meat Boy and Bandage Girl can fight back. It’s time to unleash the raw fury of parenthood on their foes just like Liam Neeson in that documentary about his family vacation in Paris. Bigger boss battles than before. Your mind will be blown. Your socks will be blown off. Team Meat is not liable for any of this. Brand new art with stunning detail and resolution. There are a lot of pixels in here. Grab the biggest display you have and watch those dots change color rapidly with gumption. Don’t sit too close though. (If your parents aren’t home you can sit as close as you want we won’t tell, but Team Meat is still not liable for any of this.) A soundtrack composed by Ridiculon so intense that the state of Wyoming has issued a ban on all audio devices capable of playing it out of fear that just a single note will cause the dormant super volcano beneath Yellowstone to erupt ushering in a new age of darkness. Frame by frame artisan crafted in game animations, and animated cutscenes that will make you experience procedurally generated emotions. A story so rich and moving that it makes Citizen Kane look like an unboxing video for a dehumidifier.

A bold genre shift, but not a completely successful one.

A hugely disappointing sequel, where the high difficulty, restrictive controls, and randomly-generated levels all contribute to a thoroughly miserable platforming experience.

Like the original, Super Meat Boy Forever tests your resolve, but it's easy to jump back into the action and the thrill of success is worth the endurance

Super Meat Boy Forever makes some big mechanical changes but maintains its predecessor's reputation as one of gaming's toughest, most satisfying platforming challenges.

If you were a huge fan of Super Meat Boy, like me, you will be extremely disappointed with this game. It's like they took all the parts of Super Meat Boy that made the game AMAZING, and lit them on fire and let them burn to nothing but ashes. I can't help but wonder if the game would have been great had Edmund McMillen remained a part of Team Meat. I will admit that I was not

Super Meat Boy Forever is actually a pretty good game, I have been waiting for that game to arrive ever since I found out about the game being made in 2018 then in April 2019 and now in December 23, 2020. It's an amazing game. Too many levels and newest bosses. New story about how Nugget got kidnapped by a dead now resurrected Dr. Fetus. I give this a 100% ONE HUNDRED PERCENT!!!
I thought it was great, the infinite run kinda sucks, but you get used to it. I think they should have made it so you can shut it off, but otherwise the game is meant to be hard, prepare to die a lot.
I was super excited for Super Meat Boy (taking) Forever to hit EPIC Store on Dec 23. So I made the leap of faith and just bought it without knowing anything about it outside of loving part one immensely for its challenging but always very fair gameplay. So, should you be excited for Super Meat Boy Forever? It depends on if you can live with the controls! First, the good: they
