I take it that means no more steam codes before launch? Just wondering, I really enjoyed the previous scavenger hunts, even if I didn't get to the codes first.

=)

ps: Ed, you're awesome, just like your works. Keep it up!

Cool, I dont mind waiting if they are trying to fix problems. :)

Gah. Steam never seems to get these things right :/

Anonymous said...

This happens with most indie steam games that get an exact time... it usually takes 2-3 hours after the aimed time for it to actually be available... which is really lame but w/e only a little while longer

Vladislav said...

Yes, they took all the keys themselves and are now playing. Just can not put it down.

Esse said...

Pretty sure we are gonna DDoS Steam the exact moment the game is available for download

nirvana63 said...

i hope so, the question is when this will be;)

Cardia said...

God : "Cardia, i need to ask you something to prove your loyalty !"

Yes my lord !

God : "Kill Gabe and take all the keys and give these keys to all the player waiting for that rocking game"

YES !

XD Oh, come on, i'm driving crazy. I want to play !

Cardia said...

Just listen to the OST, the time will not be long !

Enjoy !

nirvana63 said...

listening to the ost bit still sad that the game is not released yet:(

Nah. He's been without sleep for few days, trying to fix all the bugs ect. and he simply forgot to send to game to Valve before going to sleep.

Don't worry, I'm sure he's going to wake up in a day or so and realise that.

In the mean time try to explain to your girlfriend/wife why exactly you are going to spend hours and hours playing a game, where the main character is a crying kid who runs around in a basement killing horribly deformed things with he's tears. While he's mother is trying to kill him. Also sometimes he's going to be destroying giant turds and buying stuff from a guy who has hanged himself from the ceiling.

And why exactly did you buy a game like that, and why do you like it so much. I'd suggest you try to make it sound psychological or something, how it all is just a way to express something deep and meaningful. Or something.

YEAAAAAAAAAH !

Again with 5$ == 5€... I hope the extra cash goes to you instead of Valve...

Anonymous said...

its out :D!
but 1 $ = 1 € :(

Sirsus said...

Spain here, already downloading :-)

Cardia said...

Damn, that game is HARD as HELL.


Anyway, i encounter some trouble with flash. I have a good pc but Binding of Isaac is a bit laggy in "High quality".. When there are no enemies, it's cool. But when there are enemies + blood + tearshot, the game is in slowmotion...

Any idea ?

By the way, good game, it's fun !

The Green Tie said...

I can't play the soundtrack through Steam! D:

ET said...

Soundtrack should be at :
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\the binding of isaac\The Binding of Isaac Soundtrack

I also have a bit of lag, so I put the detail to medium... Make sure to enable full screen, it's really hard to play in a window.

Anonymous said...

on the mac version i have an issue where the game launches then launches the application "Isaac" and it no longer is connected to steam so "time played" doesn't work and achievements don't unlock.

nirvana63 said...

same problem on my new macbook here...also i got a small lag everywhere and a really big lag when there is a lot going on...and this even though i got a ssd...there are really som fixes needed...

but the games is great:D

Anonymous said...

No achievement unlock here and i can't seem to find the soundtrack :o, only 3 .exe files

Anonymous said...

no achievements here too (windows vista 32b)

Esse said...

Just came back from 2 hours straight of gameplay


The sole fact i've played 2 hours on the same game means that this game fuckin rocks!! It has everything a gamer could want: its fun, its deep, its perfect for a quick game AND a long marathon at the same time... just two tiny bugs/weird things

1)The game doesnt close completely after exiting properly, or, the game opens in 2/3 processes apparently for no reason. If you want to close Steam, you have to kill these processes

2) You can't use Steam Overlay with this game. if you try to press Shift+Tab you'll just waste all of your bombs, happened to me when i was trying to tell a friend about how awesome this game is :(


In all, im really happy for having spent such a low price on such a great game, keep it up!!

Nero said...

I've got it for PC and loving it. I was going to complain that no achievements unlocks for me, but just got an update that fixed it :D

I will be playing this game a lot.

is there no higher resolution than it says in the options? Mine is 1920x1080.. :(

Anonymous said...

@ anon 3:03 PM
I thought this was supposed to be drawn from vector?
If it is, you could probably change some key value in regedit or possibly some other config somewhere.

Anonymous said...

what!? why no 1920x1080. -_-

Anonymous said...

curse you Mr. McMillen,
no controller support? what up?
Haven't you called this a twin stick shooter like a bunch of times in previews and interviews up to launch?

I don't want to play this game with a keyboard.. I feel used..

Anonymous said...

is there a way to play it in fullscreen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Rei dos Vermes said...

The game is great, really fun and addicting.

But I'm disappointed with the tecnology used in The Binding of Isaac. It's a flash game without any customizaion. You can't even remap the keys! Also, there're a lot of slowdowns because of the flash nature of the game, despite owning a good gaming PC.

AWESOME GAME! I love the art! Also, I really enjoy your blog posts and think you should post more.

Awesome game, unfortunately the first time I got to Mom, she knocked me below the bottom of the screen. :( I can tell I'm down there because her main attack follows me as I move around, and I can use bombs and hear the noise when I shoot, but I can't get out. Very annoying as it definitely took me several tries to get here, and I had gotten her to half health. Oh well, at least I unlocked a character on the way.

jimmy penguin said...

i cant find the soundtrack, i bought with the game, where does it save to?

Toadvine said...

I've been trying to get the soundtrack to close for a month now, and like many people on forums I'm looking at, I don't even seem to have a Steam folder on my hard drive. I've looked everywhere about five times. Help!

Great game, BTW. So satisfying to finally kill Mom earlier tonight.

skip hire said...

Time just don't pass when you are waiting for such a great game although I am lucky one who din't have to wait for it as I got it ready for me.

estate agents wimbledon said...

doesnt anyone know where the sound track is located?

David S said...

Dear, Edmund I was wondering will there be a lag fix for the mac because every time I enter a room I get a bad lag delay in full screen. I really want to do a lets play of this game but the lag hinders it.
