Because We May sale has launched through digital distributors, get some great indie games at a special discount price now


Because We May’s indie game sale has officially launched and features tons of discounted games for your playing pleasure. Many games are discounted on various platforms. Check out the Steam Specials page which currently has 100 games/DLCs on sale including Civilization V. There are many bundles also available at a discount price, which include but not limited to: Introversion Software’s Multiwinia + Darwinia bundle and Uplink/Darwinia Pack and Two Tribes Pack (Toki Tori, Edge, Rush). Additionally you may purchase the brand new Swords & Soldiers: Super Saucy Sausage Fest DLC for just $1.79 (10% off).

Because We May (concept and production is by Ron Carmel, 2D Boy – World of Goo) will be discounting their games from May 24th to June 1st. The idea is to show that developers have the ability to control their games’ prices by lowering them when they wish to do so, such as like on the last week of May. Discounts will occur on the iOS App Store, Mac App Store, Google Play, Direct from Developer, Other Stores as well as Steam.

Because We May has gotten support from studios Introversion (Defcon, Uplink, etc.), Team Meat (The Binding of Isaac), Dejobaan (AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome), Gaijin Games (Bit.Trip Runner, etc.), Double Fine (Costume Quest, Stacking, etc.), Hothead (DeathSpank, Penny Arcade Adventures, etc.), Mode 7 (Frozen Synapse) and more; but those are just the games available from Steam. There’s still other games for different platforms which will be on sale.

Because We May states on their official website:

“We believe that developers should have the freedom to price their games how they like, without interference from the online stores that sell the games. “Why? Because it allows us to promote our games more freely, as we are doing here! We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.”

Super Meat Boy: The Game coming to iOS


Super Meat Boy: The Game for iOS is real by Jonathan Holmes (Destructoid)

[Update: Some of you asked if Super Meat Boy: The Game will be an iOS exclusive. Official comment from Team Meat- “anything is possible.. but yeah its not exclusive at all“]

Here is some old news that been newly confirmed. What took so long for the confirmation? Between the chaos of Dtoid’s dating site taking over the world, sifting through all the April Fool’s jokes that went live that day, and interviewing Mutant Mudds developer Jools Watsham for Sup Holmes?, this one just got lost in the shuffle. That’s not an excuse, just an explanation.

You can thank Lisanne Pajot and James Swirski (directors of Indie Game: The Movie) for reminding us that Super Meat Boy is coming to iOS is a newly imagined form. They re-announced the game at a recent screening of their film (expect an interview with the directors on Dtoid next week) and Meat Boy creator Edmund McMillen has gone on to restate that the news is legit. According to Edmund, Super Meat Boy on iOS “…will be a 100% new game that wont totally play like SMB, but will embody what SMB was at its core. New art, new music, new engine, and whole new look as well as a new take on the SMB story“. He’s calling it Super Meat Boy: The Game. It even has its own font!

Given Team Meat‘s past statements regarding the iOS marketplace, it was easy to think this was all a joke. I’m guessing that Super Meat Boy: The Game will end up being a hybrid between self-satire and an earnest effort to combine the strengths of Meat Boy concept and the iOS platform. Sounds good to me! We’ll be keeping a close eye on SuperMeatBoy.com for further news on the game’s development.
