Andy Schuette has been gaming ever since he could hold a SNES controller in his hands and has been loving every minute of it. He's the funniest guy he knows, and the least funny guy everyone else knows.
So we meat again! Today marks the release of Super Meat Boy on the PlayStation Store, making the hit game available on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. And if you’re a PlayStation Plus member, you can get access to the game for free throughout October.
One distinct difference between this version and Super Meat Boy’s 2010 debut on Xbox 360 and PC is its new soundtrack, a product of the discontinued relationship between original composer Danny Baranowsky and developer Team Meat.
Baranowsky elaborated earlier this month on his personal blog about the situation:
“I own all the rights to my music, and Team Meat approached me to license the music for the PS4 and Vita versions. I didn’t feel like the license fee and exposure through PSN they offered was enough to make me seriously consider accepting the deal. I decided to decline their offer. I wish them and the new artists the best of luck with the game.”
Luckily, there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood between the two parties; just an economic decision made by Baranowsky.
Team Meat has then brought in Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans, the creative minds behind the soundtrack for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. David “Scattle” Scatliffe, composer for Hotline Miami, and Laura Shigihara from the soundtrack of Plants vs. Zombies round out the team as they collaborate to design sounds for the various levels of the game with their own style of music.
Either way, check it out for yourself today on the PlayStation Network! Though PlayStation Plus members can download and play for free (well, at least as a part of their subscriber status), non-Plus subscribers can still get their hands on a copy for $14.99 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita!
