Edmund McMillen was pretty surprised that The Binding of Isaac sold almost one million units since it launced. How surprised? “Who would have thought a game about an abused child fighting off his mother with his tears could ever sell 700k copies in less than a year? The Binding of Isaac Not me, that’s for fucking sure.” Well, that’s pretty surprised, I’d say!
If you were a fan of the game, and bought the recently released “Wrath of the Lamb” DLC, you’re in for a treat: McMillen was disappointed by the DLC’s launch, and the team behind the title decided to do a new update for the game. Wrath of the Lamb v1.3 adds more “items, bosses, enemies, music, secrets and a very hard to attain final ending cut scene that should shed some light on the games story even more” that’s apparently available to everyone, as long as you bought the DLC. If not, you’re a cheap bastard.
More importantly, McMmillen ended the email about the game’s success with this: “700k is a big number… maybe its time to bring the game to console .” Nintendo recently gave a big “go fuck yourself” to Team Meat after they wanted to get the game on the 3DS, indicating that the long-rumored and legitimately suggested attempts to get the game on the Vita and PS3 are now, most likely, confirmed. I mean, what else would that smiley face be for?
