About the game:

When Isaac's mother starts hearing the voice of God demanding a sacrifice be made to prove her faith, Isaac escapes into the basement facing droves of deranged enemies, lost brothers and sisters, his fears, and eventually his mother.

The Binding of Isaac is a randomly generated action RPG shooter with heavy Rogue-like elements. Following Isaac on his journey players will find bizarre treasures that change Isaac's form giving him super human abilities and enabling him to fight off droves of mysterious creatures, discover secrets and fight his way to safety.

Hurry up and take my money!

Its amazing that it takes longer to buy this game than it does to download and install it, it took less than a minute to get and launch this game. I really love these games you guys make, even if they are a little weird.

My only possible criticism, assuming the game works fine all the way through, is that while its based on a famous story, it seems less creative than Super Meat Boy, I just hope it is more forgiving. Keep making these for 5 dollars and I will continually give you my Subway lunch money, 2 meals a day is worth a couple dozen hours of fun.

The most entertaining indie game of the decade!

This game has a very good premise, (inspired by the Bible story of Isaac). The game play is very solid and very challenging, depending on which enemies are easy and which are hard, (Damn Globlins >:c). You'll definably spend hours upon hours trying to beat the full game. Unlocking characters and items. Speaking of items, I really love how many of the items are based on actual religion. My only disappointment about the items was that they only went into two religions, Christianity and Satanism.

The music is hauntingly catchy, I find myself humming the basement theme after playing it so many times, and the chills you get up your spine when you first enter the "Devil Room". Trust me, you know what I mean when you find it.

The bosses are challenging, but not too much to be unbeatable, (Im looking at you Gubby >:c).

There are also what I like to call "moral machines". I find them Moral because of the choice you make between one machine and another. For example in one room there is a beggar I can give all my coins to and get a reward for doing so. On the other hand there is a slot machine in the room next door, which give you a chance of getting a dollar (99 pennies!). But the slot machine is very random and thus you wont be sure if your next coin will net you something useful or not. It's giving vs Gambling!

This game is defiantly worth your money and your time. I recommend this game to everyone who hasn't had a chance to try it out. This demo is the perfect chance to try this game out before you pay the very wonderful price of $5 dollars! If you like this demo, then go beg your parents for $5 now!

On a final note, if you think this game is messed up when you look at it. Look at this game from the perspective of an abused child.

Clever Marketing!

Hey, it was enough to get me to buy the full version on Steam!

I haven't even gotten to the end once yet,
and I already say it was worth the cost!
