The Meating: New NES Puzzle Platformer Coming to Kickstarter [UDPATED]

Last Updated on November 20, 2023

The Meating, a new puzzle platformer for the NES, is coming to Kickstarter on October 27th, 2023! This unique game features a ghost minotaur protagonist who must use his array of ghost skills to navigate platforming levels, collect meat to pull himself together, and solve the mystery behind his untimely demise.

We caught Andrew Marsh, Grill Design Master at Mega Cat Studios, munching on a juicy burger and proceeded to ask him about their newest recipe cooking in the labs. “This is some good beef we’ve cooked up for the fans. Aged well and grilled at just the right temperature, it just needs this last finishing touch before it’s ready to serve!”

Backers of the Kickstarter campaign will enjoy exclusive rewards such as a wagyu Limited Edition cartridge, Nintendo Switch codes, and posters.

Update: Game Boy Advance tiers unlocked for The Meating

Mega Cat Studios has unveiled an exciting addition to its Kickstarter campaign for The Meating, the mouthwatering puzzle platformer that has captured the hearts of gamers worldwide. Backers now have the opportunity to savor the meaty adventure on the go with the introduction of exclusive Game Boy Advance (GBA) tiers.

The Sirloin Supporter tier serves up a delectable serving of The Meating on GBA, complete with a collector’s box and a digital bundle.

“A Handheld Experience as Satisfying as a Perfectly Grilled Steak”

Mina Figueroa, Marketing Lead for The Meating, expressed her enthusiasm for the new tiers: “We wanted to give our backers a handheld experience that’s as satisfying as a perfectly grilled steak. The Game Boy Advance tiers are our way of bringing the pixelated delights of The Meating to a new level of portability.”
