This article at grab it discusses the strange goings on at Team Meat, with the seemingly fake game announcement and past public attacks on Apple.
The trailer for the new game makes no sense at all. I say conspiracy.
I think the title of "indie darlings" has gone to Team Meat's heads. I wonder if Mew-Genics is even an actual thing at all? Maybe Team Meat are just trolling iOS gamers with all this stuff. Which would be a pity because iOS gamers are not just strictly iOS gamers, they are also console and PC gamers so in effect Team Meat are only disrespecting their own customers, and also potential customers with all their jackassery. At the moment Team Meat are one-hit wonders.
That's a pretty interesting point actually. Especially given there is no second game to really justify their status. First one was good though.
Have to agree with you on this one. I honestly find these guys pretty arrogant and so I'm not willing to support their work at this stage. That and I find some of their work pretty distasteful.
It's been way too long between games for Team Meat to be messing with consumers like this. I hope for their sake that whatever it is pays off at PAX. But I think a lot of people are intrigued by A Voyeur for September. If Team Meat turns around and shoots down a unique and compelling idea in favour for something else, I don't think it will sit well with fans who have already been fed a bunch of empty promises. If it IS a joke, Team Meat might be the only ones enjoying it.
Haters always gonna be haters. In a progressive industry like gaming, I think you shoot yourself in the foot if you don't appreciate all genres for what they are. The fact is, mobile gaming is here, the next generation are happy with it. If you don't jump on, you will be left behind in your rocking chair reminiscing about when people gave a sh*t about you.
While I do agree with what you're saying, I also agree that the App Store is a bit broken and the way Apple treats it, even more so.
If by sitting in that rocking chair means playing 8 generations of consoles with great catalogs of games, then have fun with mobile games I will live in the past.
I can't wait for Binding of Isaac: Rebirth on PS4 by Edmund McMillen of Team Meat.
Yeah Edmund is awesome, he is currently working with Nicalis on getting Isaac:rebirth out, which is my most anticipated game this year, it's not like Team Meat are slackers...IT'S TWO GUYS!!
