Binding of Isaac piano arrangement is sweet sorrow

When The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth was announced, I was puzzled by some of the folks were annoyed with the new graphics, deeming them "pointless." They seemed to think that because they liked the original game's visuals ...

The Binding of Isaac turns one, goes 75% off on Steam

Has it really been a year since The Binding of Isaac released? Time sure does fly when you're playing and replaying such a deceptively large game. To celebrate the one-year anniversary, Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl are d...

Binding of Isaac 'Wrath of the Lamb' DLC now on Steam

I adore The Binding of Isaac. It's one of those games with a bite-sized length which lends itself perfectly to a mid-day work distraction and, as a result, I've played it nearly to the point of full completion.  The one ...

Binding of Isaac expansion set to release on May 28

When someone tries to make videogame characters look hyper realistic, the end result usually leads to feelings of regret. "Why couldn't I just let that link be and move on?" The same effect can be found even for a game like ...

This Binding of Isaac expansion poster is such a tease

You know, it feels great to not spend every last moment of my free time playing The Binding of Isaac. This has been a nice break, but it won't last for much longer -- not with the upcoming expansion on the horizon. Edmund McM...

The Binding of Isaac gets a grotesque retail edition

It was only a few days ago that online retailer, Merge Games, announced they would be selling a retail version of Terraria, a collectors edition no less. Now another of my favorite indie games from last year is getting a reta...

Binding of Isaac to expand with 'Wrath of the Lamb'

The Binding of Isaac is a deceptively long game if it's full completion you're after. I'm at 25 hours and I know that's nothing. Edmund McMillen recently started working on a new expansion, "Wrath of the Lamb," that will add ...

The Binding of Isaac: Now with 20% more evil

[Update: The update still hasn't gone live due to server issues, it will launch when they are back up. No word on when that might be, however.] Halloween is upon us, guys and ghouls. For many of us it's an excuse to dress up...

The Binding of Isaac update delivers improved save system

If there's something that all The Binding of Isaac players can agree on, it's that the game is bloody difficult. The way Binding of Isaac saves has played some part in this and its creators have finally fixed it up a bit...

The Binding of Isaac gets a demo, more content incoming

As much as I love The Binding of Isaac, I can see why certain people might be hesitant to blindly buy, even with the affordable price. You now have one less excuse, however: the game's creators have put a Flash demo up on (wh...

Review: The Binding of Isaac

If I weren't already so fond of game jams -- and rapid prototyping in general -- The Binding of Isaac likely would have pushed me into such fandom. It began life as a week-long project between Team Meat's Edmund McMillen and ...

Binding of Isaac's creepy baby heads coming in September

Edmund McMillen's latest personal project, The Binding of Isaac, looks as weird as everything else the man has ever done in videogames. The latest trailer appears to place its focus on the variety of enemies Isaac will encou...

How to take The Legend of Zelda and make it your own

There has been a lot of talk lately about what constitutes plagiarism in game design. Is it stealing to make a game that looks just like another game, but plays differently? If you take all the basic elements of a game, but a...

How a killer Christian shmup roguelike came to Steam

The Binding of Isaac is a roguelike shooter, sounds rad

In a blog post, Edmund McMillen gave us the skinny on a game he's working on, The Binding of Isaac. He says it draws inspiration from The Legend of Zelda's dungeon structure, controls like Robotron: 2084 and Smash TV, and is ...
