UnderMine roguelike to have day one support

undermine roguelike to have day one linux support

UnderMine is an action-adventure coming with day one support for Linux, Mac and Windows. This is also roguelike with a few RPG’ish elements tossed in and currently in closed Alpha via Steam. But I also had a chance to delve into UnderMine on Linux, as a lowly peasant seeking fortune and freedom.

Anticipated #remake The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth arrived on Steam (with” Overwhelmingly Positive” reviews) and the North American PlayStation network today, so you can grab it for Linux, Mac, PC, PS4 and Vita for $15 – or free for PlayStation Plus members.

In a poop-joke laden press release, publisher Nicalis said the new version contains over 160 new unlockables as well as new bosses, levels, endings, characters and secrets; a new soundtrack; and an engine that runs at 60 frames per second.

Two-year anniversary of Binding of Isaac documentary released for the game

Edit: Woops! We’d originally suggested that 2 Player Productions were behind this film. And, er, they are not. Apologies for the confusion.

The Binding of Isaac’s two year’s old and to celebrate, Indie Game: The Movie creators Blinkworks Media have released a 30 minute special on the making of Edmund McMillen’s roguelike. But unfortunately the YouTube video has been set to “private”.

However, the documentary does cover how McMillen created the game out of a need to escape the safety net that Super Meat Boy’s funding provided. Financial fear had driven that game’s development. This time McMillen used time and risk. His usual collaborator, Tommy Refenes, was away for a week so McMillen gave himself that time to make a game.

The risk was to make a game that could “hurt [his] career in some way.”

That game became The Binding of Isaac.

Currently on Steam, Binding of Isaac is definitely a game you need to get it if you have not already.
