This is the first video in my Super Meat Boy playthrough. In it, I am going for the the Wood Boy achievement. This achievement is for completing all the levels in the Forest chapter (chapter 1) without dying.
Each chapter has 2 achievements that require you to complete all the levels without dying. There is one for the light world and another for the dark world. You don’t have to complete the levels in order but you have to start over if you die.
I never thought I would be able to get any of these achievements. I didn’t think I would have the desire to put in the amount of time I thought was necessary. So I resigned myself to missing out on them.
I recently wiped and reloaded my gaming PC. I didn’t do a very good job of backing things up and lost my SMB save. I was working on the dark world of chapter 4 and had played for 24 hours according to Steam. Shoot me in the face!
So I started working my way back. As I did, I noticed something. I’m actually pretty good at this game now! Not good enough to get those achievements on all or even most of the chapters but maybe good enough to get it on the Forest.
This video is my run at that achievement. I will go ahead and apologize for the sound. The mic I was using wasn’t very good. I’ve borrowed a better one since so the rest of the videos are better.
