Twitch plays Super Meat Boy ? Are you serious ?
I could ignore the stupid message about controller being better than keyboard as first screen that sometimes crashed the game, I could ignore some offensive stuff on blog including drawed nudity and all this stuff, but this is just beyond everything. As I have no idea how to directly link twitter posts here, I will just quote it, you can check it on their @Supermeatboy handle if you don't believe me: "If someone wants to make a Twitch Plays Super Meat Boy setup for us, we'll host it and give you lots of swag!" . Let me tell you what's wrong with it. First of all, god, this is a platformer game, you don't need to press one button to pass whole stage or, like in Pokemon, win a fight. You have to use combinations. Imagine thousand people trying to go somewhere in a platformer game with 20-second long delay between stream and chat - I think that's self-explainatory. But that's nothing when compared to their greedyness. I suppose they know how huge success was it and they want to copy it so they can earn $$$ for. I can't remember any game that was made by them since 2011, that's 3 years already. Now, they are trying to gain some cash through this cheap form of doing something that succeeded for another person, but this time they know what they are doing, twitchplayspokemon was the first kind of this type of streams, and they did it for fun I guess, not with instant imagination of thousands bucks from subs and ads. Now, Team Meat thinks they can get easy money for their 4 year old game just by letting viewers play it. If I am wrong, then why won't they stream it anywhere else ? Maybe I'm wrong, maybe they are going to give some part of money they earn from it for charity, but now I can see it as just another stupid try to earn easy cash so they can finally finish their new game about cats. Don't get me wrong, I love Binding of Isaac and Super Meat Boy, but this is just miserable to do as for developers, to ask someone to do something so they can get some money for basically not doing anything but leaving their broadcast turned on for days with profit. If I'm wrong, then explain why. I hope that they are going to rethink their decisions and at least try to do it themselves, then situation would be a little better at least.

Both members of Team Meat are millionaires. They don't care about a few thousand dollars off Twitch, they just think it would be funny. The reason why Team Meat hasn't made a game in 3 years is because they've been working on Mewgenics for 2 and a half. They were doing a IOS Meat Boy thing beforehand, but it was delayed for Mew. They're also working on a game that they don't want to bring up until it's done, and Edmund has been doing Isaac stuff for a while now.

You forgot to include the part where Tommy says he'd do it himself if he had the time. If Team Meat really were that desperate for money, do you seriously think this would be their number one choice? Not, for example, hastily throwing together some DLC for Super Meat Boy and releasing it on Steam? I mean, wouldn't that be both more reliable AND profitable?

Yeah, as joejoe said, they've been pretty damn busy over these last three years. Between iOS Meat Boy, Mewgenics, secret project, and BoI: Rebirth (Is Ed still a judge for IGF?), they've been pretty busy. It's very clear that games are their passion. The money is a bonus, but they make games to make games. And the ultimate dream is to make a living doing what you love.

These guys are the last devs I would suspect of petty greed like this. lol

I don't think Ed is doing the IGF anymore. It was always a mix of people who thought that the winners should be the best games, and people who thought that the winners should be the games that needed the financial help. I've heard interviews where Ed and Tommy both said they didn't like the fighting and were done being judges.
Shadowspaz 26 feb. @ 7:58pm 
Ah, yeah. That sounds right. I think I recall Ed saying that the judging is rigged in favor of those that "need it more."
joejoebuckbuck 26 feb. @ 8:05pm 
Yeah, Edmund says that Gish shouldn't have won against Alien Hominid. Crayon Physics even won against Braid and Castle Crashers.
Shadowspaz 26 feb. @ 8:05pm 
Holy ♥♥♥♥, really? Crayon Physics?
joejoebuckbuck 26 feb. @ 8:08pm 
Yeah, I couldn't believe it either. It really only won because Braid and Castle both had console deals.

Ok, I'm dumping everything I said about their greediness, I think I should rather bother about ubisoft and EA tossing DLCs all the way everywhere than this, so I'm sorry any offense I wrote here about them, they are good devs, I wish they could continue their successful game spree. I was just angry at how TwitchPlaysPokemon affected twitch and streamers I like just because the amount of people that flooded single chat server, I shouldn't have been that overreactive and I accept that it was a mistake to write such stuff here.

Perfectly understandable, I also hate it when things that were cool just get copied over and over and over again. No harm done man.
