The Binding of Isaac, by Edmund McMillen

10 months after the release of Super Meat Boy, Edmund McMillen has put out his next game, The Binding of Isaac, a horror-themed top-down shooter that takes its name from the Biblical story where Abraham is asked by God to sacrifice his son. The game features short, randomly-generated levels with 100 items, over 50 monsters, and 20 bosses. The soundtrack is by Danny Baranowsky.

Note: Isaac is not a Team Meat release. The programmer for this one is Florian Himsl, who previously collaborated with Edmund on Cunt and Twin Hobo Rocket. Team Meat has purportedly started work on their next project.

This Entire Post is Inappropriate and NSFW

The C Word

Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl’s latest game (NSFW), ostensibly named after a favorite word of the presumptive Republican U.S. Presidential nominee John McCain (NSFW), contains somewhat graphic depictions of male and female reproductive organs, sex, and sexually-transmitted diseases (in cartoon form). It is not safe for work. It is only marginally safe for home. It is inappropriate for children. It is inappropriate for adults who are not fond of sex. It is inappropriate for adults who ARE fond of sex.

In short, this game represents a very real threat by “electronic cyber-terrorists” to destroy the American values you hold so dear, so you should probably play it before they take it away from you.

Coil is an experimental Flash game with no instruction or clear direction.
Please keep an open mind while playing.

A bizarre game that definitely shows off Edmund’s talents as an artist and game designer. He and programmer Florian are in top form with this lovely little piece. I’m inclined to think you’ll agree (provided you don’t get stuck too early on).

The game is controlled with the mouse only.
