This week Binding of Isaac creator Edmund McMillen brought us a trailer for his new project which is just called Thingy for now.  While it is not part of Isaac nor is it a sequel to his earlier platformer Time Fcuk, it integrates elements of both games into this new project.

With this new game footage for Thingy, it has left many wondering what impact it will have on the development of earlier announced, The Legend of Bum-bo.  McMillen has told Eurogamer:

“Deving both at once not sure what one will be out first, but I’m quite happy with the pace of both currently they seem neck and neck but we will most likely push one back a month or two from the other when the time comes.”

Binding of Isaac fans will also be happy to know that new details have been released on Afterbirth+, the new DLC.  Two new items include Void, which destroys all of the items in a room, but acquires the power of said items.  It is also able to stack items as well, which makes it very powerful at the end of a run.

This item will be available as a perk for the new character, Apollyon. The second item is Smelter, which destroys all the trinkets you currently have and transfers the effects to your character for future runs.  This item will be found in the games store.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
