Following the release of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Edmund McMillen and co. have started looking into some ideas for an expansion and are soliciting fan feedback on some of them.


The developer wrote a new blog post saying that a design document has already been written, with the hope of adding a new gamemode, more enemies, bosses, new areas, endings and a new playable character.

The developer will be asking for feedback on a specific element each Monday. This week’s theme is items. There are also a few guidelines.

Only suggest item effects, im not at all looking for item names/themes/visuals but only effects, for example

  • A store item that rerolls the store and has a recharge of 3
  • A tear effect that turns your tears into
  • A trinket that makes a fart sound whenever you shoot

Do not suggest redundant items

  • An item that rerolls all items in the room with a recharge of 1
  • An item like X but better

Do not suggest overly complex items

  • An item that teleports you to the boss room but gives you one heart double damage and shows the map, but gives you 2 min to beat the boss before you die

If you’re interested in voicing your opinion, you can check out this Reddit post. Additionally, a live-stream will be held at 8PM PST on Wednesday to discusss a few of the submitted ideas and more.
