Super Meat Boy Mac Update and Linux Support Live on Steam

Super Meat Boy

Super Meat Boy is three years old now and 80% off on Steam.

This piece of meat isn't messing around. The "tough as nails" platformer Super Meat Boy launched three years ago, and to celebrate the three-year anniversary, the game is only $3 on Steam, and a much-needed updated for the Mac version and a new Linux version are available on Steam as well.

The announcement came from a post on Twitter from designer Tommy Refenes of Team Meat. The sale ends Nov. 8. The soundtrack is also 80% off, making it $1.19.

Super Meat Boy was initially launched on the Xbox Live Arcade in October 2010 and released for Windows PC a few weeks later in November. The game had problems working on a Mac, frequently crashing for users. Resolution problems were common as well. The Mac version went live a year after the PC version. The game has now been tested for Mac OS X 10.7 through 10.9.

Team Meat is working on its next game Mew-genics while taking a break from the next Super Meat Boy game. Mew-genics should launch sometime next year.

Super Meat Boy is one of those insanely difficult games that everyone should at least try once. Because the game is so difficult, using a controller instead of your keyboard is advised. The game has over 300 stages, warp zones that warp you into other games, unloackable characters from other indie titles such as Minecraft, Bit.Trip, VVVVVV, and Machinarium, and according to its page on Steam, "a story so moving you will cry yourself to sleep for the rest of your life."

Well, isn't this unexpected, porting something years later to an unmarketable OS!

(Not naming who I'm addressing, you know who you are.)

OT: It's really nifty how long they're supporting the game. It's a good game to support, too.

Christ, its still a tenner on XBLA!! I wanted to try it after reading some articles, but i guess not now.

Son of a bitch, the game actually works for me now. Guess I got something to do today.

So does this mean The Binding of Isaac's Linux port will be on Steam soon, or that the other guy from Team Meat was responsible for putting this out?

So you literally don't own a computer at all? Because this isn't exactly some AAA game that requires a Crysis-level machine to run.
