There’s a reason most indie games come out digitally. All that printing and packing and shipping costs a whole lot of money. And while the convenience of downloadable titles is nice, sometimes you want a physical memento of a game you really love.
Edmund McMillen knows how you feel. The game-maker’s The Binding of Isaac will be getting a spiffy retail release from publishers Merge and Headup Games, complete with the giant Wrath of the Lamb update that funneled in 50% more goodness into the satanic rouguelike. This new Most Unholy Edition comes a DRM-free copy of the game, along with a new soundtrack, art book and poster. It’s a curious and great development for a game that came out of nowhere and plumbs such disturbing and difficult depths.
