Mega Indie-Hit The Binding of Issac will now be coming to your home as a physical card game. Edward Mcmillen Creator and Game Designer of The Binding of Issac has just announced The Binding of Issac Four Souls, which is a fully realizedÂ card game using all the lore throughout Issac’s journey. Edward Mcmillen has stated:Â â€œDesigning this was fun and easy and Iâ€™m treating this as I would any video game that Iâ€™ve ever worked on,â€ said designer Edmund McMillen. â€œThe goal is to make a very playable and entertaining card game that has a lot of strategy to it and embodies everything thatâ€™s unique about The Binding of Isaac.â€
In order to make this dream a reality Edward Mcmillen has started Kickstarter for The Binding of Issac Four Souls, and he is looking to raise up to $50,000 with a 30 day target. The Binding of Issac Four Souls is currently in playable prototype which includeÂ 100 Monster Cards, 100 Loot Cards, 100 Treasure Cards, 100 Pennies, 4 Character Cards, 4 Power Cards and 2 dice. Each game begins with players selecting a Character Card and receiving 3 Loot Cards and 3 Pennies.
Players then take turns playing Loot Cards to attack monsters in order to gain resources that can be used to purchase items. Once strong enough, players can battle boss monsters that will yield souls. The first player to end their turn with four souls is crowned the winner.
