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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Just like...

This is a reminiscent of Zelda. I mean the dungeons, simple bosses with predictable attacks, standard enemies, and the shops and items.

Kinda Good

The game is nice and pollished and really cool. Im not so keen on the concept or backstory of the game and why is there so much crap in Isaacs Basement? It's still a very solid game and I may check it out on steam.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

this game is awesome

I have already beat the demo a few times (and died too)
and this is very addicting
when I saw the intro to it else were I wasn't sure if I wanted it or now
thanks for the demo, I made up my mind
when I can I will buy this game it is just plain awesome
plus the whole basement cave thing reminds me of the first legend of zelda's dugeons
anyways I am hopeing one day it may be free for steam but who knows


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Bought the game on launch day, and still loving it

Look, to all the people complaining about paying for the game, let a guy who actually has the game speak:
This is just a demo containing two levels. There's a total of eight levels, and every time you play, the game is completely different, there's always different items, different enemies, different bosses, and there even are some locked ones you have to unlock yourself before you can find them!
Not to mention, it will be long before you run out of stuff to see, there's a total of 100 items, 50 different enemies, all of them can be special and have different stats (like more strenght, health, speed, etc), 20 bosses, and 6 different alternate endings for you to enjoy! (All of them creepy)
For those of you complaining the game is hard, well, it is hard, but not as hard as shown here, the thing is, you see, the demo is skipping a level, so you might skip powerups that'll make it easier for you. But DO be wary, the game IS hard, but the more you play it, it gets less hard (and try playing it with a gamepad and joy2key, very helpful).
AND to those complaining about paying, it's $5 fucking bucks. I live in Argentina, a country in South America (shit economy), and paid for it no problem. Buying games through Steam is as easy (and WAY more economic and less time consuming!) than buying it at your favourite "Games and Games Stuff Store", I already have about 20 games on my Steam account, and I don't even have money to buy an used car.
And to the brazilian guy worrying about the whole currency thing, Steam converts your money to dollars automatically, so don't worry about that. We're both in a similar economic situation, and buying games through Steam is much cheaper than buying games at retailers. So money shouldn't be much of a problem, the game's probably cheaper than one night's dinner (it is over here!)

So, the short version is: Buy it. You got nothing to lose, the game is amazingly replayable, I still haven't seen all it has to offer (I even found something I hadn't seen before in the DEMO), it's cheap, Steam makes buying stuff online stupidly easy, and you're going to waste that money on some other stupid crap, so you got no loss. I see absolutely no problems with this game, so you should just go buy it now. Edmund needs money to make more awesome games like these.
