The odd cat game is being remade “from the ground up” according to Edmund McMillen.
Edmund McMillen, who brought us The Binding of Isaac and The End is Nigh, had a rather strange project in the works in 2012. As part of Team Meat, McMillen was working on a project called Mewgenics that was delayed and ultimately cancelled in early 2016. That being said, McMillen did claim the project could return and that’s exactly what’s happening.
In a new blog post, McMillen said that Mewgenics is in development and this time he’s working with Tyler Glacial who brought us Closure and The End is Nigh.
“Tyler and I are currently prototyping some stuff for [Mewgenics] and if all goes well I’m 99% sure that little monster will once again become my obsession. Mewgenics was always my oddball dream project and probably the game I’m questioned about the most these days.
“Mewgenics is being remade from the ground up so don’t expect to see much for a year or two. Who am I kidding I’ll probably start teasing the first beta images once things get moving along…”
McMillen is still focused on The Legend of Bum-bo which will be out this year and promises more gameplay footage soon. However, perhaps more interesting is that The Binding of Isaac will see some more content coming soon. This is despite the last DLC which was supposed to be the final DLC.
“I did say many times this was going to be the last Isaac DLC…and at the time i strongly believed it. but there seems to be something pretty cool on the horizon, its creeping up slowly…it’s familiar but a bit different and its being held up by a group of people… when i squint i think i can make out a…oh sorry i gotta go, there is someone watching me in my space ship.”
