Edmund McMillen, one half of Team Meat
(the dev duo behind Super Meat Boy
), has been working on a secret undertaking called The Binding of Isaac
. The side project, which has nothing to do with Team Meat's next "feature length" project, finds McMillen working with programmer Florian Himsl (Coil, Triachnid, C word
), and a score by Danny Baranowsky (Canabalt, Super Meat Boy, Cave Story 3D
McMillen plans to reveal release date and platforms when the title is finished in about a month. The only hints we get for now are, "It's a play on my favorite game of all time," and that it's a roguelike
. He hopes to share more information next week.
