Expect more cutesy and horrifying things from the folks behind Super Meat Boy, as developer Team Meat announced its next game over the weekend, Mew-Genics. The pair started the mysterious new "game about cats... kinda" during a weekend game jam, then were so taken with it they put Super Meat Boy: The Game, the follow-up for mobile and PC, on hold to play with cats.

"Mew-Genics is by far the strangest project I've ever worked on.. and that's saying something," Edmund McMillen said in Saturday's announcement. "Tommy and I are very happy with how development has been going on it and decided that Mew-Genics will be the next official Team Meat game. We don't want to spoil too much here, but we can say the game will be randomly generated, strange and involve cats."

What the game actually is, along with its release platforms and all that jazz, is a mystery for now. McMillen did note that "We are moving quite fast on it," so expect details "soon."

An official site is up, but only has a picture for now.

        You should try Dustforce. Even more brutal because you can't stop. Ever.

      Stranger than Coil? Jesus, that'd be an accomplishment unto itself.
