So, during the Steam Summer Sale 2011, Super Meat Boy was updated and has a new achievement: "Medium Well". It's description is only, "Spend as little time in hell as possible"

How do I earn this new achievement?

Unless I messed up with my calculator, the A+'s for each level in hell put you at a time total of 631.8 seconds.

Update: Super Meat Boy was later updated in 2011-07-20 and what was originally the "Medium Rare" achievement has now been renamed to "Medium Well".

Wow, you really hit the Google jackpot. 3k views already! Understandable, though. Damn cryptic objectives. –  lunboks Jul 2 '11 at 19:36

The SMB team has said on Twitter that it counts a sum of the best play times in Hell.

From the Super Meat Boy Forums:

You must clear Hell, both light and dark world

The sum of your best times in Hell must be less than some threshold

Apparently, the threshold is 500 seconds.

I'm under 500 now, but I can't seem to get the achievement - I checked, and the achievement isn't showing up with the rest of them on the steam stats page. Anyway I can force the game to check for updates? –  Raven Dreamer Jul 2 '11 at 22:14
    
Okay, weird. It showed up a couple hours after I got < 500. It showed up as soon as I got to the main menu, so don't know what delayed it. –  Raven Dreamer Jul 3 '11 at 0:56

The threshold seems to be exactly 500 (I got it with 499.43), you must restart the game and go back to the main menu to unlock it, and full A+ and the boss are not required (I don't have an A+ on 4-20X) –  lunixbochs Jul 3 '11 at 22:04
