I'm even repurposing a screenshot. I'm so fucking lazy!

Hullo! I used to write on this site, and then I got very tired. I sleep most the day now. It’s nice. When I’m sleeping, I get my nurse to play podcasts. This is my favourite games podcast in ages. Roguelike Radio is a Roguelike-centric podcast which plays a different one every couple of weeks and does a show about it. In this case, however, they’ve got Edmund McMillen on to talk about Binding of Isaac. And it’s so brilliant, I almost managed to stand up. But my legs failed, and I was left sprawling hopelessly on the floor. I wish I had working legs and a functioning penis, though that’s probably too much information. But honestly, unless my critical faculties are as rusty as my cog-powered cock, this is a genuinely brilliant, wide-ranging interview about McMillen’s latest. Go listen! Meanwhile, I’m going to have a little lie down. Bye!

title="Permanent Link to Humble Voxatron Debut deal gets Gish">Gosh it's Gish



The Humble Voxatron Debut deal has expanded again. There's four days to go until time runs out, but if you decide to pick up the voxelly indie blaster, you'll now also get a copy of squishy platformer, Gish.



It's worth remembering that if you pay more than the average donation, which currently sits at $5.18, you'll get bonus copies of The Binding of Isaac and robotic puzzle platformer, Blocks that Matter. As with all the Humble Bundle deals, you can pay what you want, and choose how much of your donation goes to the developers, Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.



At this moment, The Humble Voxatron Bundle has received $757,593.38 in payments, with 146,195 purchases. It may well clear ONE MILLION DOLLARS before it expires in ... four days, ten hours and 38 minutes (and counting). Head to the Humble Bundle site to get in on the deal.

title="Permanent Link to Humble Voxatron Debut adds Binding of Isaac, Blocks That Matter">bindingofisaac



Your opinion on voxels may or may not be one of unbridled adoration (mine is that "voxel" is really fun to say), but now the Humble Voxatron Debut's venturing outside its voxel-centric comfort zone. Voxely.



First up, there's recent indie dungeon-crawling darling The Binding of Isaac, which combines steep difficulty with imagery that will leave your brain crying in the fetal position in the darkest corner of your face. Then there's Blocks That Matter, a puzzler with a Minecraft-inspired twist. Simply beat the average price (currently $4.73) and all three games are yours. Or, you know, wait until a better deal comes along. Which will be never.

The devious wee sods. It’s always like this: the Humble Bundle announces its latest pay-what-you-want indie deal, so we duly post about it because the people should know and all that. Then, a few days later, they go and add more games to the bundle, so it seems wise to also post about that. They’ve [...]

The Binding of Isaac was already quite evil. You play as a naked child fleeing for his life through a monster-infested basement to escape his mother, who has been commanded by god to slay Isaac as proof of her faith. Indiegames note that after the free Halloween update, you will be able to fight three new bosses, four new enemies and collect more than 20 new items if you successfully slay your mother ten times. The update also adds a new playable character, another ending, more achievements, more music, tarot cards and MORE EVIL. The Binding of Isaac comes from one half of Team Meat, Edmund McMillen, and is available now on Steam for £3.99 / $4.99.

Edmund McMillen's The Binding of Isaac managed to be one of the creepiest, most f-ed up games come out in quite some time. So, it's especially fitting that the co-creator of Super Meat Boy's offering a sizable update on All Hallow's Eve for his action-RPG shooter. Here's what the update adds, from McMillen's blog:




-Added chapter 5 (unlocked after 10 mom kills)

-Added 3+ new bosses

-Added 4 new enemies

-Added 20+ new items

-Added one new unlockable character (Eve)

-Added one new "FINAL" ending.

-Added 6+ new achievements

-Added 2 new music tracks

-Added updated collection viewer

-Added 4 new tarot cards (finishing the major arcana)




McMillen promised that he'd be rolling out fresh Isaac content if the game garnered a sizable following and this update follows up on that pledge. You can get the game over on Steam right here.

The most common complaint about The Binding of Isaac is that it doesn’t contain enough horrid things in it, being a rather delicate cocktail of blood, tears and poo. Thankfully, the Halloween update, which will automatically apply itself to Steam copies of the game by noon PST today, adds “20% more evil”. It says so [...]
