Super Meat Boy gets 140 new levels

Owners of the Steam version of Super Meat Boy now have access to over 140 new Super Meat Boy levels thanks to the recently released Super Meat World update. Divided over eight chapters, the extra stages (designed by users, members from Team Meat, and other developers) can be found to the left of the first world after collecting over twenty bandages.

Team Meat is planning to supplement Super Meat World with the addition of a public beta for the Super Meat Boy level editor. Users will be able to upload levels to the Super Meat World portal once the tool is released.

After the beta period for the editor is finished and it's deemed stable, Team Meat will introduce “The Unknown,” a feature that will automatically select user-made levels for you. According to developer Team Meat, the update will “basically turn Super Meat World into an endless sea of RAGE!” These features are Steam-only, meaning Xbox 360 Meat Boy fans are out of luck for now.

    Great. Hey, they were gonna make a mac version too. I hope that's still happening. You know, because I bought the game at Christmas and still haven't been able to play it.

    I bought and beat the Xbox version. :( Oh well, Steam is selling the game at half-off, so I might as well pick it up for the user-generated levels. (Crap...this is Plants vs. Zombies all over again for me!)

    Yes, this is the way it is done. Remember the days before DLC being standard? I miss the days when companies would do this regularly as a sort of "Thank you" for supporting their game. Feh, if this game was released by one of any number of other companies, the main game would have been pricier, and probably would have charged $5 or more for half the bonus content. I mean sure, there are games like LBP that support user generated content as a matter of course, but even LBP had a fair bit of DLC you had to pay for. If one doesn't want to pay, one just shouldn't bother with it is obvious. Missing out on content because of all this DLC business sucks though. /guy harping about how everything was better "In the good old days".

    Awesome. Grabbed it for $2.50 during Christmas and been meaning to sink some time into it. Just need a controller but I suck with the keyboard. :P

    Maximum community service with minimum effort - That's how it's done. Would be cooler if they'd let console players at least download "Unknown" levels. I get that you have some beef (ha!) with MS, but the fans shouldn't be left out because of it. (before the flames: I'm a PC nerd and own the Steam version)

    MOAR MEAT! Good on Team Meat; hopefully it comes to 360 sometime soon! (Captcha: Journal Informe. Oddly appropriate)
