The Binding of Isaac's Wrath of the Lamb expansion will be ready for download late next month, announced
Isaac's proud creator, Edmund McMillen, today (via Joystiq). While the original Isaac's dad was the knife-happy one, gaming's favorite
hysterically-crying little diabolist will get a stack of new
items, frenemies and achievements when his progenitor's hard work
finally comes to fruition – whereas his mother will still be trying
to kill him.
McMillen says Team Meat has
been working on the $3 DLC – Isaac's first and last add-on – for longer
than the actual game itself, which is still in the news thanks to its
irresistible mix of Zelda-style dungeon-crawling, Robotron-style
shooting, and Swedish-death-metal-style religious iconoclasm. Yes,
the game's truly got something for everyone, with the possible
exception of people who think spitting devil-blood onto piles of
damned excrement could possibly be less than a laff riot. (Don't knock it, etc).
