Not much is known about the game now, other than the fact that it's a roguelike, that it's based off of one of Edmund's favorite games of all time, that Danny B (the award winning composer of Canabalt and Super Meat Boy) will be handling the soundtrack (sample found here), and that the programming will be handled by Florian Himsl (programmer of Coil, Triachnid and the C word).
Other dribbling factoids include word that the game won't be on the 3DS or the 360, and that it will be "much smaller than Super Meat Boy." Then there's the only known images related to the game, both found in the gallery of this post. One depicts a triumphant "me" and a dead-looking mom, the other focuses on a very sad, very vulnerable looking baby. After a bit of research on the game, I found that there is an old folk song about the maltreatment of an African American World War 2 veteran called The Blinding of Issac, made famous by Woody Guthrie.
What do dead-looking moms, sad babies, and blind African American World War 2 veterans all have in common? Hopefully we'll find out this weekend, when Edmund has promised to give me some more info on the game.
