Edmund McMillen has provided the indie community with two of its most beloved (and hated) titles: Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac. These cult classics have provided gamers with hours of frustration and entertainment, and the team is back at it. The designer and programmer, Tyler Glaiel, have announced that they are working on a new title.
The team teased their newest title on the Binding of Isaac Tumblr page earlier today after announcing some upcoming booster content for Isaac itself. Here is what little information McMillen released to fans earlier today:
on a side note not many of you know this but Tyler and i have been in crunch mode for the past 3 months trying to finish this secret project. we are coming close to announcing it and its release date, so keep and eye out for it, i dont want to spoil the fun yet but i can say this.
its hard, its weird, its personal, its has amazing controls, its a totally new unannounced IP and its easily one of the largest games ive ever made level wise.
It looks like fans of the McMillens work can expect a few games from him in (possibly) the near future. Not too long ago, the dev announced two titles they had already been working on. The Legend of Bum-bo was described by the developer as a turn-based puzzle RPG, and the recently titled Øuroboros has been described as, “a Mega Man / Isaac-like [experience], but a platformer with really tight controls.” Despite these two titles already in the works, it is safe to assume that the title teased by McMillen earlier is another game altogether.
One thing is for sure; we can all be positive that these titles will make us hate our lives, but we will totally enjoy it as we do it. What are you hoping to see from the Binding of Isaac developer in his futures titles? Let us know in the comments below!
