The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth, A Massive Expansion For Edmund McMillen’s Twisted Roguelike, Finally

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, a massive expansion for Edmund McMillen’s twisted roguelike, finally arrives on October 30. Rebirth adds new game modes — one focused on “greed,” another with daily seeded runs — and tons of new items, endings, and other secrets for players to discover.


  • I have to admit, I just never really got into this. I really wanted to because so many people rave about it, but no matter how hard I tried it just never grabbed me. I didn’t hate it or anything, but nor do I feel the love for it that so many others seem to.

    What’s wrong with me?!?! 🙁

    • How long did you play for? I was addicted to this for a good few months. Took a few weeks to consistently beat the final bosses. Fair bit of luck involved too, which you can manipulate to some extent.

    • I’ve got a combined time of a little over 400 hours on the Binding of Isaac games and still feel compelled to go back and try to unlock more stuff. You might be better off not getting into it.

  • You write an article that’s a headline and a short paragraph and get the title wrong…It’s Afterbirth, Rebirth is the base game.
