Edmund McMillen, the mind behind Super Meat Boy, announced Mew-Genics today. “We don’t want to spoil too much here, but we can say the game will be randomly generated, strange and involve cats,” Ed McMillen said, not even hinting to the new game’s genre. Although details on the new title are sparse, he did mention that “Mew-Genics is by far the strangest project I’ve ever worked on.”

Team Meat, consisting of Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes, has prior experience with games containing randomly generated content. Team Meat’s last major release was Binding of Isaac, a top-down shooter with procedurally generated dungeons. Tommy Refenes will also be working on Mew-Genics.

Currently, Team Meat is also developing a new Super Meat Boy game for iOS and PC dubbed Super Meat Boy: The Game. Edmund McMillen did specify that Mew-Genics would be released prior to SMB:TG.
