Early last Fall, Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl released The Binding of Isaac. The top-down dungeon crawler RPG, with its twisted sense of humor, pleased both critics and fans. Now, a little over seven months later, the development duo have returned with the announcement of an expansion to The Binding of Isaac, entitled Wrath of the Lamb.
Wrath is due out near the end of May.
Bringing over a hundred new items, along with new chapters, enemies, achievements, bosses, room types, item drops, music tracks, and a challenge mode with unlockable “Beserker” character…for $3, you can’t go wrong picking up this one.
I’ve put some time into The Binding of Isaac, and it’s a great game for some brief downtime. Binding offers no save points, so it’s all a one-time play-through each time you boot it up, but that’s fine as it is not exactly the kind of game that you would sit down and play for hours at a time.
An announcement trailer was released for the Wrath of the Lamb, which you can watch here, but because it is just a hype trailer, I’ve included a gameplay trailer for the original game, below, so readers new to the title can get an idea how the game works.
Also, there is a demo version of The Binding of Isaac available to play for free on NewGrounds: Play the demo.
