I have to hand it to Super Meat Boy‘s Co-Creator Edmund McMillen, he, and any member of Team Meat really, could have easily strayed away from their roots after the success of SMB. Ed’s new personal project , The Binding of Isaac, proves that he’s in no way shape or form interested in deviating from style. This latest trailer finally gives us a glimpse into the creepy world of Isaac. The game has been described as a “roguelike shooter” with heavy influence taken from 16-bit Action RPG era (think Zelda); personally I think it looks more more like a Smash TV-style game, but shrug. The game follows the story of Isaac attempting to escape the clutches of his deranged mother who believes God is demanding her to sacrifice her son to prove her faith… Sounds charming
Look for it to launch via Steam for both Mac and PC this September.
