When Isaac’s mother starts hearing the voice of God demanding a sacrifice be made to prove her faith, Isaac escapes into the basement facing droves of deranged enemies, lost brothers and sisters, his fears, and eventually his mother. The Binding of Isaac is a randomly generated action RPG shooter with heavy Rogue-like elements.
There are two main things about The Binding of Isaac that make it great: the fact that it is a roguelike and the wide variety of unique and interesting items it has. This makes for endless replayability, which can be displayed by YouTubers such as Northernlion who is well past his 800th video of it, and that only counts the runs he's done on camera.
I guess many of you know Edmund McMillen and his masterpiece Super Meat Boy. This is another one of his games, and this time Edmund was isporato bibbliche the story of the sacrifice of Isaac, only this time it will be the mother to sacrifice his son. Here we play as poor Isaac through dungeons, fighting monsters, and find power-ups that besides giving us power, we will also change appearance.
Being a game based on a story biblical, certainly no lack of religious references, such as the Christian cross, God, the 7 deadly sins, the pact with Satan, the Satanic symbols, and more.
Once again a copy+paste from my Steam recommendation, because I'm lazy:
"A great, addictive and challenging rogue-like. A playthrough isn't really a matter of hours, but it still took me a total of 22 hours to finally beat the first playthrough. The humour is kind of sinister yet funny. The variety of items, enemies and bosses, procedural level generation and different unlockable characters make sure not a single playthrough is the same. Definitely worth the money! (Note: it might take an hour (or two) to really get into the game so give it some time :) )"
