Following years of teases and a significant delay, Super Meat Boy Forever has arrived just in time for the holidays. The sequel to the wildly popular 2010 indie platformer is available on PC via the Epic Games Store and Nintendo Switch, with PlayStation and Xbox ports planned for early 2021. Super Meat Boy Forever costs $20, but there’s a way to snag it for only 10 bucks right now.
As part of the Epic Games Store’s Holiday Sale, you can get unlimited $10 off coupons to use on games priced $15 or more. To get your first coupon, you simply need to sign into your Epic account (or create one for free). Each time you make an eligible purchase, a new coupon will be deposited into your account. With the coupon applied, you’ll save 50% on the brand-new release. You can take advantage of this deal until Epic’s Holiday Sale ends on January 11.
A mobile follow-up to Super Meat Boy was originally announced in 2014. Throughout development, the sequel morphed into a traditional PC/console release and became quite ambitious in the process. Super Meat Boy Forever’s plot revolves around Meat Boy and Bandage Girl’s quest to save their daughter Nugget from Dr. Fetus.
While it’s still a challenging 2D side-scroller like the original, Super Meat Boy Forever is an auto-runner. The way you progress through the game is a huge departure from its predecessor, too. Team Meat created thousands of levels for Super Meat Boy Forever. Each time you play through the campaign, you’ll encounter new levels and secrets. The studio claims that you can complete the game “several times before ever seeing a duplicate level.”
