The Binding Of Isaac Review | Best Indie Games Of 2011

The Binding Of Isaac made our Indie Game Of The Year 2011 shortlist, and with good reason. It's an addictive, infinitely replayable and utterly reprehensible 21st centuryhybrid roguelike from the artistic half of Team Meat, and it's as exciting as it is thoroughly stomach-turning. You can currently grab it for £0.59 on Steam, but Value-wise, it's probably best to grab the DLC too for 74p all-in. If you already own it from one of a thousand bundles, the DLC is available separately for £0.29.

  • What: The Basement Collection
  • Where: GamersGate
  • Current Price: £0.90
  • RRP: £2.99

We've seen Edmund McMillen's delectably bizarre collection of platformers, prototypes and pre-Super Meat Boy titles slightly cheaper at GMG, but for now, GamersGate are willing to save you two quid. Well worth a punt if you want something different and thoroughly strange to get stuck into.

Team Meat Rather Apathetic Over Next-Gen

It's fair to say that Team Meat's Tommy Refenes and Ed McMillen aren't the biggest fans of the console publishing carousel of hoop-jumping. Going on past performance from the console bigwigs, they're not exactly chomping at the bit for the next generation of consoles. In fact, they don't think Durango, the PS4, or the Wii U will have too much of an impact, mainly because hardcore gamers are no longer the ones dictating trends.

The Binding Of Isaac Set To Creep Out Consoles

Edmund McMillen has announced that his deliciously twisted roguelike The Binding Of Isaac is headed to home consoles. Though he's not willing to talk specifics, a Q&A reveals that Microsoft definitely "want" to secure The Binding Of Isaac for XBLA, and it will have local cooperative play. The console version will also include the Wrath Of The Lamb expansion pack.

We described McMillen's creation as "a randomised , replayable and reprehensible masterpiece" in our 8/10 The Binding Of Isaac review.

Team Meat: Mobile Gaming Companies "View Their Audience As Dumb Cattle"

In a recent blog post, McMillen castigated "large numbers" of mobile companies for treating gamers with a "lack of respect", accusing them of viewing their consumer audience as "dumb cattle".

Team Meat Considering Binding Of Isaac For "Sony Platforms"

One door closes, another door opens. After Nintendo blocked the 3DS release of The Binding Of Isaac, Edmund McMillen is seeking to bring his disturbing indie vision to "one or two Sony platforms." Which, erm, means Vita and PS3 then. Obviously. McMillen was also quick to clarify that there's no bad blood between him and Nintendo, and this SNAFU won't affect future collaborations. [Joystiq]

To be honest, we reckon this is a much better fit for the depraved roguelike... especially the Vita. We want this. Make it happen.

The Binding Of Isaac Denied 3DS Release

Nintendo Concerned By "Questionable Religious Content"

Edmund McMillen has confirmed that The Binding Of Isaac, his addictive and thoroughly disturbing 21st century roguelike, has been denied a 3DS release by Nintendo. Apparently they're concerned about its somewhat unsettling themes of infanticide, matricide and potentially sacrilegious iconography not quite gelling with their usual lineup.

“After a long internal debate Nintendo has decided NOT to allow the Binding of Isaac on the 3DS,”

“As many assumed the reasons were due to the games ‘questionable religious content’”

Once again, McMillen extols the virtues of Steam, and suggests that their acceptance of controversial material is part of the reason why they're the "top dog of digital distribution." You can read our full The Binding Of Isaac Review for more details.

Team Meat Prototyping Tech For Possible Super Meat Boy iOS Release

Team Meat co-founder Edmund McMillen has revealed that the studio are looking into the possibility of bringing acclaimed platformer Super Meat Boy to mobile platforms such as Android and iOS in some form, and are already dabbling with tech and testing out prototypes.

"We are currently developing tech for the next game that might be a touch remake of Super Meat Boy for both [iOS and Android] platforms mentioned," he explained.

"If we end up doing it it won't be anything like the version people are familiar with but something new that embodies the SMB spirit."

Massive Free Patch Adds New Bosses, Items & More

Team Meat's Edmund McMillen delivered a thoroughly nauseating, utterly tragic and staggeringly brilliant roguelike with the The Binding Of Isaac, which we highly recommended in our recent 8/10 review. However, after much preparation, a major content pack is set to go live this afternoon and will deliver a host of new features via Steam automatic update.

Players can expect a brand new chapter (accessible when you kill your own mother ten times), an unlockable character, loads of new items, alternate bosses, achievements and even music when the patch goes live. We can't wait.

The Binding Of Isaac Review | Twisted Genius

Platform: PC

Developer: Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl

Edmund McMillen, half of Team Meat and developer of cult indie hit Gish, is well-versed in the art of the thoroughly disgusting. The Binding Of Isaac is the natural progression of his trademark art style and dark mature themes, telling the horrifying story of an abused child escaping certain death at the murderous hands of his insane mother - fighting off hordes of deformed, nightmarish monstrosities with his own tears. It's thoroughly nasty, frequently nauseating and occasionally even a mite moving.

Strip all that away, however, and you'll discover an ruthlessly addictive and surprisingly replayable little Roguelike beneath all the blood and grime.

After Isaac's schizophrenic mother attempts to murder him (a modern twist on the bloodthirsty Bible story), our tragic young hero manages to tumble into a hidden basement beneath his house. Players will need to explore these terrifying catacombs, gain items, grow in strength and eventually commit brutal matricide. The action subscribes to the classic roguelike formula of randomly generated mazes consisting of single-screen arenas full of enemies, obstacles and collectibles. However, the formula has been brought up to date with slick arcade shooting mechanics instead of turn based number crunching. Isaac's tears can be directed in the four cardinal directions using the arrow keys or mouse, with speedy movement mapped to WASD. Fans of shoot 'em ups will be well away.

Binding Of Isaac To Release On September 28th

Team Meat's Edmund McMillen has a game coming out at the end of this month, details above. Form the looks of things, The Binding of Isaac seems to resemble a bit of Bomberman, a dash of Zelda, with the bloodsoaked animation of The Dishwasher and the cutesy hand-drawn graphics of SMB.

We have so many questions...why is Isaac so naked? Why can he only vomit balls of jizz as a defensive tactic? What are those strange creatures in the trailer that look like the Elephant Man's children? Can we have a weeping plushie?!

We can't wait.
