The Legend of Bum-bo is heading to PC via Steam on November 12. This prequel to the oft-updated The Binding of Isaac is a puzzle-based deck-building rogue-like adventure that tasks players with finding the titular Bum-bo’s stolen coin. If it’s anything like Isaac, I’ll be playing it for the next decade.
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ got its final booster pack update today. Live on Steam and set to come to PS4 sometime in the future, Booster Pack #5 adds items, enemies, and a boss as well as a completely new character. There’s also an extensive list of bug fixes and other small teaks.
Yesterday, Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth players got to play as Satoru Iwata. The former head of Nintendo died in 2015. Every year since, he’s appeared in the game on December 6, his birthday. Afterbrith never made it to Wii U or 3DS, so was the first time the tribute was on a Nintendo platform.
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is coming sometime in 2016, according to the game’s publisher, bringing official mod support, a bestiary, and more. The game’s latest expansion, Afterbirth, only launched a few weeks back. It’s unclear if this update will cost any money, but the game’s gotten lots of free updates.
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, a massive expansion for Edmund McMillen’s twisted roguelike, finally arrives on October 30. Afterbirth adds new game modes—one focused on “greed,” another with daily seeded runs—and tons of new items, endings, and other secrets for players to discover.
