The Binding of Isaac documentary celebrates two-year anniversary

Sunday, 29th September 2013 23:38 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Thought it barely seems like it, it’s actually been over two years since Team Meat’s Edmund McMillen released his solo rogue-like The Binding of Isaac. The indie cult favourite is perhaps too young to call a classic, but it sold strongly, received lavish critical praise and spawned a whole community of YouTube fans with its randomly-generated playthroughs and unforgiving difficulty. The documentary through the break comes from the team which made Indie Game: The Movie, and is a half hour look at the game’s development and intended message.

The Binding of Isaac is on sale on Steam at 80% off, making it a measly $1. A remake called The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth with extra bells and whistles is coming to PlayStation 3, PS4 and Vita thanks to Nicalis.

Thanks, GameInformer.

    Definitely a good little game. It never really became an obsession like Super Meat Boy though.

    And it had another great soundtrack from Danny Baranowsky. Makes me kinda sad that he won’t be doing Mewgenics. I actually bought the physical version of the SMB one. NERD.

    I feel the opposite. Super Meat Boy was a great game but it was Isaac that stole my heart (And life).

    Seriously agreed about Danny B though. His work in SMB and Isaac is among the very best I’ve heard in ages.
