Indie Games You Have to Play: The Binding of Isaac

Continuing my recommendations of cool indie games, I must present you with The Binding of Isaac today, a creepy little gem by Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl.

The game, which you can grab for a few well-invested bucks via Steam, puts you in the shoes of a little boy who delves into randomly generated little dungeons filled with strange items, even stranger and rather scary enemies, and a classic and addictive Zelda-like gameplay.

Check out the (pretty awesome) trailer below for a quick taste of the fun!

I propably will find it to be very useful eventually, but a shoot button for every direction is insanely annoying. And it I think I'll break at least one of my hands if I continue playing this on the keyboard. Time to try out that JoyToKey thing.

Totally agree. The "unique" controls are somewhat difficult to master in the beginning, especially if you're not really ambidextrous =) ... have you checked the lefty option? Maybe that's more suited to you.

I tried, sucked equally but JoyTokey is pretty awesome and it definitely feels a lot better with a gamepad. I even finally managed to survive the first dungeon XD

Yeah! :D

It's really pathetic that it took me so long for this but after 58 hours of playtime and this close to using cheats I finally beat Mom. And after reading a strategy guide on the final boss it was kinda easy. So I hope it won't take me another 50 hours to really beat the game.

I'm so respecting your burning ambition to solve games like this, would take me at least 100 hours, I guess! =)
