Mew-Genics demonstrates the miracle of cat birth

So far, we know that Team Meat's Mew-Genics will have you raise and breed different types of cats. But exactly what will the breeding process look like? Fortunately, the studio behind Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac has the type of answer that the Shacknews readership will appreciate the most: an animated GIF.

Team Meat's Mew-Genics is cat lady simulator

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).

Binding of Isaac dev offering nine games in 'The Basement Collection'

Edmund McMillen has been making quite a name for himself, having worked on Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac. But, McMillen's been making games for quite some time--and he'd like his newfound fans to try some of his earlier games.

"I've been making games for almost 9 years... making freeware games for fun (and minor profit)," he wrote in an email. "A lot happened before SMB and Isaac, and I thought it would be awesome to take 8 of the best games from my freeware past, update them with new content, music, graphics and gameplay and re-release them in a nice tidy little package."

Binding of Isaac looking to Sony platforms

The Binding of Isaac has been blocked by Nintendo, purportedly on grounds of religious content. So instead, developer Edmund McMillen says the team is looking into Sony platforms. That's "platforms," because if all goes well, Team Meat hopes to bring it to more than one.

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

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. The ceiling has been raised quite considerably for Nintendo's latest system, however. 3DS games are given fifty times the virtual real-estate, topping out at 2GB.

Super Meat Boy 'prototype' for touch devices in development

The blisteringly-difficult Super Meat Boy may find its way to "touch devices." Team Meat has announced development of a "prototype," but reassured fans that a mobile Meat Boy game would be very different from the original game. "This prototype will not play like SMB," the developer proudly proclaimed on Twitter.

"It will be a re-envisioning of SMB remade from scratch for touch. We aren't half-assing this if it turns out to be fun."

The Binding of Isaac awaiting 3DS approval

Have you bought The Binding of Isaac yet? Indie Jeff has covered Edmund McMillen's dungeon-crawling roguelike quite extensively.

"But Shacknews," you hypothetically say. "I don't have a gaming PC capable of playing this low-tech indie game." To our surprise, you even note that "I'm reading this post from the 3DS web browser." Well, imaginary 3DS fan. You might be able to play The Binding of Isaac on your Nintendo portable.
