Super Meat Boy Is Currently Free On The Epic Games Store
Ever since the announcement that Epic Games was creating their own store, it has been known that they would be giving out free games as well. Previously, gamers were able to pick up Subnautica for the low, low price of free, and now it’s time for Super Meat Boy to shine.
Available until January 10th, players with an Epic Games account can download Super Meat Boy at no cost to them. Once you download the game, it is yours to keep forever. For those unaware of what the 2010 hit is all about, here’s more:
“Super Meat Boy is a tough as nails platformer where you play as an animated cube of meat who’s trying to save his girlfriend (who happens to be made of bandages) from an evil fetus in a jar wearing a tux.
Our meaty hero will leap from walls, over seas of buzz saws, through crumbling caves and pools of old needles. Sacrificing his own well being to save his damsel in distress. Super Meat Boy brings the old school difficulty of classic NES titles like Mega Man 2, Ghost and Goblins and Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Japanese one) and stream lines them down to the essential no BS straight forward twitch reflex platforming.
Ramping up in difficulty from hard to soul crushing SMB will drag Meat boy though haunted hospitals, salt factories and even hell itself. And if 300+ single player levels weren’t enough SMB also throws in epic boss fights, a level editor and tons of unlock able secrets, warp zones and hidden characters.”
