Team Meat have announced Super Meat Boy Forever [Official Site], a sequel to the original and the good news is that it will have a Linux version.

Here's what they said in reply to a user question about a Linux version:

Linux yes, but after PC is out. No plans for Vita at this time. https://t.co/J3r2weqkxR

You know what makes me really like these guys, they corrected themselves right after to say "*PC = Windows...force of habit.". Love it.

They give a little more information on the official site, which makes for a hilarious read:

Let’s start with what’s the same: Dr. Fetus is still a jerk, gameplay is super challenging but fair, there are tight controls and great levels and you will die...a lot.

Now what’s different: Meat Boy and Bandage Girl have a little baby named Nugget (awww). Dr Fetus has kidnapped Nugget, forcing Meat Boy and Bandage Girl to rescue her. Levels are dynamically constructed based on difficulty. Each time you beat a level, it reconstructs into a harder version of itself (up to a point...we aren’t gods). Meat Boy and Bandage Girl are no longer defenseless, they can punch and kick their enemies. And, the biggest difference, the controls controls are now two buttons, you have a jump, a jump attack, a dive, and a slide.

It's due sometime next year.

Thanks for the tip, Ryan!

tuubiI don't mind challenging platformers, but I'm not sold on Meat Boy -- for reasons I can't quite pin down. The fast-paced gameplay makes me think the devs are Sonic fans. Too bad I never was.

Sonic? Well, I think of it as a fast paced Super Mario Bros. of the NES. The way Meat Boy jumps and the inertia of the character reminds me much more Mario than Sonic.

It's gonna take a lot more self-correcting before I pay money to Team Meat.

Tommy Refenes‏ hates Linux, Linux developers, and Linux users. He also makes it a point to stay ignorant about it.

The latest:
"I'd suffer a reset per hour rather than switch to Linux for development"

There's more, much more. He barley tolerates Linux users enough to take their money. Should he ever be in a position to screw us, he will.
