Old School Worms and Meat & Potatoes

Well here’s a nice treat. Our buddy Thurbo over at the Team17 Forums is a fan of the now relatively ancient Worms Reinforcements and took a shot at importing one of our new Worms Reloaded maps into it. He did a great job, and it’s pretty awesome to see those old school worms head butting grenades back and forth on Family Fued. Check out the video below to see it in glorious low resolution!

UPDATE: Looks like this might be a trend. Our good buddy Bonz has recently uploaded a video of his conversion of Air Force One in the classic Amiga’s Worms Director’s Cut. Sixteen vibrant colors! Thanks Bonz!

What? You’ve never heard of the Worms Armageddon updates?

Well you’re missing out. If the brand new PC video game Worms Reloaded has brought you back into the worming community and you think Worms Armageddon is a thing of the past, you need to check out a nice video created by OutofOrder at the Team17 forums. The narrator is Cueshark. You won’t believe what has been added to this game. It’s part of the reason MnP has gotten back into the custom map making business!

The Worms Armageddon Beta Showdown!

When you’re finished watching, reinstall Worms Armageddon and get those beta patches from the Team17 support page. You’ll be back in Worms Armageddon in no time! Don’t forget to check out the thriving Worms Armageddon community at the official forums page.

What’s next for Meat & Potatoes as 2010 comes to a close?

Well you may have noticed that a long-time project has finally seen the light of day. MnP delays like a professional, but delivers big in the end. If you haven’t seen Family Feud for Worms Reloaded or Family Feud for Worms Armageddon yet, check it out today! You won’t regret it.

But what’s currently in the pipeline at the Meat & Potatoes factory?

Well, believe it or not (we don’t believe it), Jeremy is finally working on his next worms map. He has a newborn baby, give him a break! The project’s working title is “Alcatraz” but will probably be changed eventually due to the similarity of title to one of Team17’s maps. It will be designed, as is our current policy, for both Worms Armageddon and Reloaded and will feature a prison break scenario. One team will be the prisoners and the other will be the guards and warden. The battle can simply be fought to the last standing team, or until all four prisoners get to an escape point – we’re not really sure how this will play out yet.

As for me, Jason, I’ve got my hands in a couple of worms projects at the moment. I’ve recently begun some work on some of the graphics for Worms Armageddon as it makes its long transition to Worms Armageddon 4.0, and what a great opportunity that is. Thanks go out to CyberShadow and Deadcode for allowing me to participate. Secondly, I have begun the preliminary work on a map so far not even alluded to in our recent posts and it is tentatively called Midnight Oil. It will be a full on deathmatch map taking place on an offshore oil rig. Should be fun and hopefully “easy to implement”.

Stay tuned and have fun.

WordPress comes to Meat & Potatoes Productions!

Well here we are – finally integrated into wordpress which means we will hopefully have some good feedback on our current projects or upcoming map ideas. We have big plans brewing for mnpp.net throughout the summer so keep checking back periodically.

Just a few updates, Family Feud is still in development. Also, just so we have this in writing somewhere… someday, as things progress, more information will become available on these maps that are currently on the drawing board.
