Sony still chasing The Binding of Isaac

Edmund McMillen has confirmed that Sony is still interested in The Binding of Isaac.

“Sony wants Isaac – a lot,” the designer revealed on Formspring.

“We will see what happens.”

McMillen first mentioned Sony’s interest in the game earlier this year, after it was denied a 3DS eShop launch, hinting at a possible Vita or PSN release.

The Binding of Isaac, an arcade rogue-like, tackles themes of child abuse in a grotesque and macabre atmosphere; that certainly seems right up Sony’s alley, given recent comments on its fondness for artistic, adult game experiences. It’s available now on Steam, with an expansion due at the end of the month. A Flash demo is available.
