Team Meat Loses Its Zen, Argues with Developer About the Horrors of Working With Microsoft
Posted on Thursday, September 8 @ 16:42:16 Eastern by Sebastian_MossDespite being promised a prominent place in the Game Feast promotion, Microsoft failed to promote Super Meat Boy, and even forgot to put the game on the marketplace for half a day, causing Team Meat to openly disagree with the way Microsoft treated them. Another developer has now come forward to talk about the positive experiences they've had with the platform holder - something that has blown into a rather public argument on Twitter.
Pinball devs Zen Studios started by tweeting:
We keep reading about all these negative Microsoft XBLA experiences from guys like Team Meat. We've had quite the opposite experience - Happy to talk about it but I bet the lack of controversy will make for headlines that will grab eyeballs - We put out our #PinballFX2 post-mort last week outlining a very positive XBLA experience with MSFT.
The company then said:
that will be our new strategy. RUMORS of near death experiences & brain damage. AND, we'll keep it a secret that we made MILLIONS!
To which Team Meat replied:
so, what the fuck is your problem? you obviously have no fucking clue what we went through to talk shit like that publicly.
Luckily, the whole incident seems to have a happy ending, with Team Meat saying:
so, now that that's over... how about a meat boy pinball skin!? :)And Zen replying:
WOW! you know what, I tweeted to you last fall to try and do it, you probably missed it. but that would be RAD
All's well that ends well.
