Following reports The Binding of Isaac
is courting a 3DS publishing deal, the indie game's co-creator Edmund
McMillen recently took to his Twitter and Formspring accounts to drop
details about an upcoming Wrath of the Lamb expansion he predicts
will add “at least 50% more than what is already in game.”
Chatting with fans over Formspring,
McMillen revealed the Wrath of the Lamb add-on will feature five new
music tracks, a slew of new collectibles called Trinkets, gameplay
bonuses, and plot additions that will flesh out Isaac's religiously
themed story. Asked over Twitter when the expansion will be ready for download
and how much it will cost, McMillen said: “when it's
done, 3 bucks.”
Speaking to possible ports, McMillen told Joystiq “higher-ups” were still
mulling over the controversial indie game, and that there were other
options if the deal fell through, explaining, "If
we don't land the 3DS, the publisher I'm talking to has expressed
interest in other digital platforms and is currently contacting them
as well about the port."
McMillen added that once Wrath of the Lamb is released, he plans to "close the book" on The Binding of Isaac.
Binding of Isaac was released by McMillen (also one half of the Team
Meat crew) and Florian Himsl for Steam last September. Read
