Team Meat have announced the latest title in their Super Meat Boy Universe, Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine, a match-4 puzzler that stars series villain Dr. Fetus.

The gameplay consists of standard match-4 gameplay where players guide colored balls to get a set of at least 4 to remove them and get points. However the developer have thrown in a tiny bit of a twist.

Instead of simply seeing the balls fall down, in Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine, players will also have to maneuver around multiple different traps in order to even make it to the bottom in the first place, adding a bit of classic Super Meat Boy flair to the game.

Here’s the announcement trailer:

Here’s a rundown of the game:

Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine

Dr. Fetus’ Mean Meat Machine takes place right after the events of Super Meat Boy Forever. After meticulously analyzing Meat Boy all throughout Super Meat Boy Forever (did you notice the cameras in the levels???), the nefarious Dr. Fetus now has all the data he needs to create the perfect Meat Boy clone! There’s just one problem: The DNA sample he’s collected isn’t a perfect specimen, which in turn yields some…less than perfect clones…

But fear not, Dr. Fetus knows how to solve this problem. He creates a bunch of ruthless test chambers and starts sending all of the clones he’s created through them, in order to weed out the crap clones from the good ones. The specimens start out looking nothing like Meat Boy, but over time that grotesquely lovable face that Dr. Fetus hates so much, starts to emerge. Perfect clones are just on the horizon and after they’re done…who knows what happens next? Probably something to do joyously with torturing and killing lots of Meat Boys for the hell of it!
