Super Meat Boy Steam update adds the Unknown

There's nothing random about Super Meat Boy's highly regimented gauntlet of intricate murder machines and carefully measured series of gaps. However, the challenging platformer's latest Steam update has thrown a bit of chance into the mix: Players can now "Enter the Unknown" via the game's main menu, which creates a full 20-level chapter for them to play through using a random selection of levels picked from the Super Meat World portal.

The update also adds a chapter recommendation feature, as well as a new navigation option that lets you rank levels based on their fun or difficulty -- two metrics which players can vote on after playing through a chapter. We think these two features will dovetail quite nicely considering our auspicious lack of skill at Super Meat Boy, as we've always wanted recommendations for the title's least soul-crushing levels.
