The Binding Of Isaac Set For Consoles Thanks To Nicalis

The Binding Of Isaac To Expand With The Wrath Of The Lamb

Most of us can agree that there's a direct correlation between the quality of life in the world and the number of platforms that The Binding of Isaac is available for. Edmund McMillen's fantastic indie roguelike hasn't spread quickly enough and the world is a cold, hard place as the end of 2012 approaches. There's hope for 2013 though, with the news that a 16-bit take on Isaac is bound for new platforms, console platforms!

McMillen was apparently approached by Cave Story developer Nicalis about the possibility of delivering a console port. The Isaac creator writes for Gamasutra that he was up for it, just so long as he could be kept out of the business dealings during development. And with that, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth was born and pegged for a 16-bit visual overhaul. McMillen isn't sure which platforms it'll be released for yet, but there's apparently interest from Sony and Microsoft both.

You should really just go ahead and read McMillen's Isaac post-mortem at Gamasutra. Great stuff in there.
