The Binding of Isaac hit Steam for download last September, it is designed by Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl. Edmund, as you should be able to see from the unique art style of the game, also worked on the extremely popular Super Meat Boy that launched on XBLA in late 2010.
I got my hands on the game by downloading the Humble Indie Bundle that launched in early November and thoroughly enjoyed playing it. The game has a really great and unique art style. The game follows a crying child called Isaac, his mother receives a message from God demanding the life of her son and at this point Isaac decides to run into the monster-filled basement to escape her. This isn’t really covered in the game too much and you’ll find yourself a majority of the game running around with an army of varied enemies chasing you about.
Good news for fans of The Binding of Isaac as a downloadable content pack titled “Wrath of the Lamb” has been announced and it is coming to PC on May 28th, it will cost the cheap price of $3 and add around 50% extra content on top of the original game, the list is way too long, but in the content there will be over 100 new items, 5 new chapters, 20+ new enemies, new bosses, new room types, new music tracks, a new final chapter and tons more.
Look for the release of The Binding Of Isaac: Wrath of the Lamb at the end of this month on Steam for the cheap price of $3. Check out the teaser trailer below.
