Tommy Refenes and Edmund McMillen took to their Super Meat Boy blog to share more details about their upcoming mobile version of Super Meat Boy. The team admits on its blog there's no good way to port Super Meat Boy as it exists as a twitchy platformer to mobile devices "without the game becoming a pile of garbage." So, they decided to remake the whole game from the ground up.
The blog states this will be a "touch-controlled platformer specifically designed for Touch devices," while avoiding cluttering the screen with virtual controls. On Refenes' Twitter account, he states the team is considering iOS and Android builds for touch phones and pads.
Sure, all this news posted on April 1. But this is not the first time the team shared news on this hallowed day. On April Fools' Day in 2010, Team Meat legitimately announced including Ogmo from Matt Thornson's Jumper series in Super Meat Boy.
