The Binding of Isaac Can’t Find a Home Outside of Steam
The Binding of Isaac was quite the successful game last year when it released on Steam. The game is a roguelike game that played similarly to the classic Legend of Zelda, and it came from Edmund McMillan who was one half of the development team of Super Meat Boy. It has not made it out on any other platforms primarily because of its controversial adaption of a story from the Bible. This makes it surprising that there was legitimate consideration to put it on the 3DS. It turns out that it won’t be coming out for the system anymore because Nintendo didn’t want to deal with the controversy. McMillan sounded off via his twitter account saying, “Attention: After a long internal debate Nintendo has decided NOT to allow the Binding of Isaac on the 3ds. As many assumed the reasons were due to the games “questionable religious content”. Thank GOD Steam exists!”
It looks like Steam is the only place that Binding of Isaac will call home for now.
