Binding of Isaac’s First and Only Expansion Will Add 50 Percent More Content

Super-cheap rogue-like hit The Binding of Isaac is getting an expansion in the next few months, and that will be the end of that — but the expansion will be a substantial one, the game’s creator says.

The expansion will be called “The Wrath of the Lamb,” and will feature about 50 percent more content, including new bosses, chapter, characters, game mechanics and all the other great stuff that makes The Binding of Isaac so fun. The game’s creator, Edmund McMillen, say the expansion to the PC title will be done in some three to four months, but that’ll be the last he does with it.

McMillen is also in talks with a publisher to bring the game to the Nintendo 3DS, although the deal is still moving through negotiations with higher-ups at Nintendo.

If Isaac doesn’t make its way to Nintendo’s handheld, however, it’s possible it’ll wind up somewhere else. McMillen’s publisher wants to find a home for the game, which could mean a port to the Playstation Network, Xbox Live or a mobile platform.

All good news, I say. The Binding of Isaac is a great little $5 gem on Steam that brings hours of challenging enjoyment along with it, and it’s disturbing. Can’t wait to get my hands on more of that.
