“Tough as nails” 2D-platformer Super Meat Boy, which stars an animated cube of meat who's trying to save his girlfriend, is free on the Epic Games Store until January 10. According to indie developers Team Meat, this is the first time the game has ever been offered for free. It may be an attempt to drum up interest for the sequel, Super Meat Boy Forever, which will be released next year as a time-limited Epic Games Store exclusive. Our meaty hero will leap from walls, over seas of buzz saws, through crumbling caves and pools of old needles. Sacrificing his own well being to save his damsel in distress. Super Meat Boy brings the old school difficulty of classic NES titles like Mega Man 2, Ghost and Goblins and Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Japanese one) and stream lines them down to the essential no BS straight forward twitch reflex platforming.
