Edmund [=McMillen=] (born 1980) is an indie game creator and former comic author. Initially making a name for himself through flash games on Website/{{Newgrounds}}, Ed saw his breakthrough when he and programmer Tommy Refenes, collectively known as Team Meat, released a commercial sequel dubbed ''Super Meat Boy''.

Following the toil of creating ''Super Meat Boy'', the events being one of the three stories documented in ''Film/IndieGameTheMovie'', Team Meat saw widespread success from the game, leading to further success. Currently, Team Meat is working on a Meat Boy sequel and a new title, dubbed ''VideoGame/MewGenics''; the progress of both, as well as some of [=McMillen=]'s new artwork, can be found [[http://edmundm.com/ on his blog.]]

!!Tropes commonly employed
* BlackComedy: A lot of Meat Boy's cutscenes, and almost all of Isaac.
* BodyHorror
* TheCameo: Often times characters from his other games will make crossover appearances.
* CanonWelding: Apparently, Time Fcuk and Isaac are highly related, and Steven may even be Isaac. This just complicates things more.
* MindScrew: The amount varies depending on the game, but just ''try'' to piece together what The Binding of Isaac's plot ''really'' is. Coil and Time Fcuk are other major examples.
* SurrealHorror: Some of his games, but ''especially'' his trailers, done by James Id.
