Ed McMillen: Ubuntu Store Sold Super Meat Boy For A Year Without Permission, Has Yet To Pay Team Meat
The latest Humble Bundle includes the Linux version of The Binding Of Isaac, the Legend of Zelda-inspired roguelike. The problem is, if you try to download it using Ubuntu’s Software Centre, you’ll be told Team Meat “declined” to have the game sold via the store. Except Team Meat didn’t decline, the game was submitted and rejected, the reason being it “wasn’t a good fit”.
Glorious, glorious madness. You just gotta love mash ups that put two insane games like these together.
Edmund McMillen’s The Binding of Isaac gave players a horrific, addictive rougelike experience when it came out last year. After a planned 3DS release was scuttled, the only place to play the super-tough dungeon crawler has been on PC platforms. But Isaac is being reborn for consoles, with a new edition that packs even more stuff into an already burly game.
One of 2011′s more pleasant surprises was The Binding of Isaac, a game Totilo described as “a wonderfully warped Old Testament take on The Legend of Zelda“.
The things that make us reconsider who we are and what we believe in are often bizarre, random, coincidental; sometimes completely unremarkable save for the sudden realisation that concusses you.

It’s crazy, but there’s something about Steam sales — the ease of purchase, the awesome prices — something that just let’s loose the strings of our digital wallets, and sends our credit card bills skyward. Today? The highlight is most probably The Binding Of Isaac for a ludicrous US$1.24
We’ve done a lot of big-budget games so far in our Best Video Game Music of 2011 series, but there were some great indie soundtracks released, as well. One of the very best of those was Danny Baranowsky’s dangerous, dark, synthy work on the Zelda-esque roguelike The Binding of Isaac.
Edmund McMillen’s The Binding of Isaac managed to be one of the creepiest, most f-ed up games come out in quite some time. So, it’s especially fitting that the co-creator of Super Meat Boy’s offering a sizable update on All Hallow’s Eve for his action-RPG shooter. Here’s what the update adds, from McMillen’s blog:
