Team Meat put next Super Meat Boy game on 'pause' for Mew-Genics

Team Meat put plans for a new Super Meat Boy on hold in order to focus full-time on their upcoming game Mew-Genics, according to a recent blog post from Edmund McMillen.

According to McMillen, Mew-Genics was created for game jam Ludum Dare 24, where McMillen and Team Meat colleague Tommy Refenes working around the themes of "Evolution" and "100 Cats."

"We thought the game actually had some odd potential and decided to work on it for another couple weeks to see where we ended up," McMillen wrote.

"By week three Mew-Genics had taken the form of a monster mashup of many different game genres with an underlying theme we hadn't seen done in games before ... so 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."

Mew-Genics will release for iOS and Steam.
