Jon McEntee (a new Designer on the flash scene) and i just finished up a new game!
Meet Meat Boy. He's the protagonist of his self-titled debut, irreverently named Meat Boy, a more traditional "hardcore" platformer in the same vein as Ghost and Goblins, Mega Man and N. You play as the unlikely hero in search of his kidnapped love interest. Cliché I know, but this princess is made of band-aids and she's been kidnapped by a fetus in a jar wearing a suit and a monocle. Oh, and you're also a skinless ball of juicy meat.
You can play the flash version online here:
