Poor, Isaac. Will that kid ever get a break?

While on the subject of Binding of Isaac, am I the only one who gets a little weirded out by Edmund McMillen’s games? They’re good games, I just find the artwork and subject matter a little uncomfortable…But then again, maybe that’s the whole point.

    Yeah, that’s the whole point, apparently before Edmund became a well known game dev, he was know as “the guy who drew dead babies”. …Yeah…

    Yup, that’s the point. Feel free to check out The Basement Collection to see his other stuff.

    That said, The Binding of Isaac was definitely his most ‘out there’ so far.

    Yeah, gross subject matter IS his point. And that’s why I love him. That’s also why I was kind of upset when he became “The Guy Who Made Super Meat Boy” to the greater gaming public. Not that it isn’t a great game, I really like it. It’s just not a very good representation of McMillen’s style. And if you want to see his earlier work without spending money on it: Most games available in the “Basement Collection” can be played for free on Newgrounds (most of them in the “The Badlands”-Collection). I recommend Cereus Peashy, Clöubby the Seal and Carious Weltling. But they’re still gross.
