Gish Creator Releases Meat Boy
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Edmund McMillen, creator of Gish and Aether, recently released Meat Boy, a new action platformer developed in collaboration with Jonathan Mcenee. In the Flash based game players must help Meat Boy rescue his kidnapped girlfriend Bandaid Girl from the villain holding her captive.

From Macworld:

Meat Boy is the protagonist of the game. A chunky block of meat with a face and appendages, he must rescue his girlfriend, Bandaid Girl, from the clutches of the bad guy. To that end, Meat Boy must travel through more than 56 levels spanning four chapters. A level editor is built into the game.

McMillen describes the game as in the same vein as “classic” platforms such as Ghosts and Goblins, Mega Man and N. In this, however, you’re a skinless bag of meat who leaves a trail of gore wherever he goes. It makes for some interesting action as you try to reunite Meat Boy with Bandaid Girl once and for all.
Meat Boy is available free to play or download. Visit the links below to learn more about the game.
