Super Meat Boy development for mobile paused

Developer Team Meat has stopped production of the next Super Meat Boy – the mobile version – to focus all efforts on Mew-Genics.

"We decided to officially pause work on the next Super Meat Boy and remake Mew-Genics outside of flash, making it our new full time project," the developer noted on its blog. Team Meat co-founder Edmund McMillen elaborated to Joystiq, "It's the new Super Meat Boy made for touch and other platforms. We pitched the idea as a re-envisioning of Super Meat Boy on iOS and people assumed it was just a remake or port, but it's actually a completely new Super Meat Boy game. But yes it's on hold til Mew-Genics is done."

Mew-Genics was announced late last year and Team Meat's Edmund McMillen said it was the strangest game he's ever worked on. This is coming from the guy behind The Binding of Isaac. Hold us, we're scared.
