Team Meat's Mew-Genics is cat lady simulator

When Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac co-creator Edmund McMillen describes a game as "by far the strangest project I've ever worked on," it's going to be unusual. After long weeks of teasing, Team Meat has revealed its mysterious Mew-Genics is something of a cat lady simulator, having you collect, care for, enter into pageants, and breed procedurally-generated cats (so far it can produce 25,418,658,283,290,000,000,000,000 unique felines).

3DS eShop games can be fifty times larger than WiiWare titles

WiiWare games are only allowed to be up to 40MB in size, a limitation that has prevented many games from appearing on the service, notably Super Meat Boy, which struggled to fit under Nintendo's strict guidelines.

Humble Indie Bundle #4 features Super Meat Boy, Shank, Bit.Trip Runner and more
