A card game based on the popular The Binding of Isaac video game saw a huge reaction to its crowd-funding campaign through Kickstarter recently.
The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls, created by Edmund McMillen, was announced last month promising to be a game based on betrayal and jam-packed full of well-known monsters from its video game counterpart. The Kickstarter campaign was an unprecedented success, hitting its initial target of $50,000 in its first 75 minutes. The final tally for the project, which closed last night, saw a whopping $2,650,780 raised by 38,334 backers.
McMillen’s latest unnerving vision comes in the form of a multiplayer card game that sees players fighting against an array of monsters depending on the selection of cards they are dealt. Dead beasts leave coins in their wake allowing players to become stronger and eventually competing in disturbing boss battles to acquire souls. The characters each have their own abilities which can be used to hinder the progress of other players by dealing out a number of cards containing everything from curses to giga-bosses. The first player who manages to gain four souls ultimately wins the game.
The Binding of Isacc: Four Souls is due for to be shipped across the world in November while The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth is available now for Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Linux.
