We kid you not. Created by Dave Rapoza, what you are looking at is the box art for the limited edition PC version of Super Meat Boy. One of the most successful arcade games this year, SMB is being printed on disk for a full retail release, and although the box art may be… misleading, either way you will be playing as a rippling hunk of chunk, no matter how big.
Personally, I love it in an 80s super macho throwback kinda way, while his girlfriend there bears more resemblance to the recently announced Ms `Splosion Man than Bandage Girl. Team Meat had this to say:
“This cover will be placed on our upcoming PC boxed release that will be printed and sold independently through our site. This “Special Edition” pc version will feature the exact same game as you’ve played on steam, but it will also come packed with special features like behind the scenes videos, design sketches, illustrations and never before scene cutting room floor characters, art and the like.
We hope to have the printed version out by the end of Jan. after the level editor is out, it will probably sell for around 20-25 bucks depending on the final price of the printing.”
Rock on Super Meat Boy
