** Nominee for a Spike VGA Award for Best Independent Game 2011 **

From Wikipedia:

“The Binding of Isaac is an independent video game designed by Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl. It was released on Steam on September 28, 2011. Players control a crying naked child named Isaac or one of five other unlockable characters. After his mother receives a message from God demanding the life of her son as proof of her faith, Isaac flees into the monster-filled basement in order to escape with his life. The gameplay and interface both closely resemble the NES title The Legend of Zelda, while its randomized dungeons and items, as well as permadeath, bring it more in line with Rogue-likes”
