Edmund McMillen announced that his side project, The Binding of Isaac, had surpassed the 700,000 sales mark. According to the developer, the recent Wrath of the Lamb DLC that was released for the game managed to make up one-fifth of those sales figures. That’s an impressive feat, no doubt, and one that McMillen is certain to be proud of. “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? Not me, that’s for f**king sure,” he said.
Sadly, Wrath of the Lamb launched with some issues, but luckily, a patch has been released that fixes any problems gamers may have been experiencing. And because McMillen is such a generous guy, some newer content was thrown into the expansion for good measure. The added extras include a new ending, additional achievements, and extra music.
“This is also a big thank you to the fans who have honestly carried this game to stardom,” said McMillen. “We are eternally grateful for your support, creativity and devotion. 700k is a big number … maybe it’s time to bring this thing to console. ;)”
Maybe it is, Edmund. Maybe it is. You hear that, Sony? Let’s get The Binding of Isaac on the PlayStation Network! After learning that Sony’s interested in the game, it would be great to see it sporting cross-platform play on the PlayStation 3 and Vita!
