Super Meat Boy for WiiWare turns rancid

We know that Super Meat Boy as a WiiWare exclusive was abandoned a while ago, but now it looks like they’re pulling the plug altogether with little explanation.

Are you disappointed? Or will you (did you ) play it on another system?

    πŸ™ That is one of the most stupid things I’ve heard! πŸ™ First it’s Wii exclusive and then it won’t be released on the Wii?! πŸ™ WTF?! πŸ™ I won’t play it elsewhere!

    They could have gone with episodes at $500 each and do two releases. Oh well, maybe next time.

    Playing it on PC and loving it. Get it if you have a platform it runs on. Super Meat Boy is awesome. The WiiWare thing just boiles down to problems due to insane limits on the size of the game (something about 29 or 30 MB). The last i heard Team Meat is looking for a distributor that will publish SMB on a physical disk, but it doesn’t look good.

    if u guys really cared youd send Nintendo loads of hatemail about their 40MB filesize limit.

    Same thing happened here with Marvel vs Capcom 2.

    Why don’t they just adapt to the 40 MB file size, then? They had years developing it for WiiWare, you’d think they would have let the limit sink in instead of concocting ways to have Nintendo increase it.

    Super Mario 64 was 8 MB. Nintendo made magic with 1/5 of the space. Why is Team Meat whining that their 2-D game is somehow too big for 400% of Mario 64’s file size.

    And LOL a hatemail campaign, whatever. I’ll bet in a few years, when the Wii2 comes out and the cap is raised to 1GB, they’d still bitch and whine, as has always been the song of third party developers, particularly indie game developers who feel entitled to be paid for games you can find on Armor Games for free.

    Got it on Steam for Γ’β€šΒ¬3.5 (around $5 I guess) over the Xmas holiday saves. Loving it.

    I wasn’t going to buy it on Wiiware anyway.
