Team Meat’s Super Meat Boy Forever re-emerged during the Kinda Funny Games Showcase and has a release date… sort of. It actually has a release month of April 2019. There’s a nifty trailer to check out, which showcases all kinds of gameplay, from bosses and platforming to level design. A lot of the more torturous elements should be familiar to veterans of the first game.

During The Game Awards, we learned that the auto-running platformer will be available on the newly launched Epic Games Store. So what gives? According to creator Tommy Refenes on the game’s official Discord (as per PC Gamer), “Super Meat Boy [Forever] is coming to Steam April 2020, a year after it launches.” Refenes feels it was “desperately needed to get Steam to give a s**t.”

“I understand people don’t like change but… the end result of this will mean better games for people,” he said. “It may be more launchers [for players], sure, but a small price to play for a developer community that doesn’t feel like they have one choice on PC. I would have put it on [the Epic Store] eventually anyway and I’m glad to make it exclusive.”

As such, it’s easy to see why the Epic Games Store is appealing to developers, since they pocket 88 percent of the revenue. While the store suffers from a currently limited selection and lack of region pricing, the backing of Epic Games and appealing terms for developers could lead to quick improvements.

Along with PC, Super Meat Boy Forever is also coming to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
