The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth to have daily challenges

Now I can suck daily

In the months since November 2014, I’ve slowly developed some semblance of skill in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. While I’ve still got quite a lot of playing to do if I wish to earn the Platinum God achievement, I’m impressed with how far I’ve come. The upcoming Afterbirth DLC threatens to undo all of that.

On Isaac‘s Tumblr, a frightening new feature has been announced: daily challenge runs with scoreboards. A new level is generated every day for players to try to out-score their friends, enemies, or strangers. We don’t yet know how exactly score will be tallied, so we’ll have to wait for a future post. I’m excited at the prospect of competition, but for some reason no matter how good I am at a game, I’m ass at daily challenges. Fuckin’ NecroDancer, man.
