Tyler reviewed Super Meat Boy when it was first released and called it "relentlessly difficult" and "the most fun you'll have by dying repeatedly." Developer Team Meat pointed out on Twitter that this is the first time Super Meat Boy has been completely free (without having to pay for a subscription that included it). If you've been dying to die repeatedly, now's your chance.

Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
