The The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth wiki last edited by niamulyasari on 01/26/15 05:33PM View full history

Overview

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is an indie horror action-adventure game developed and published by Nicalis (under creative control from Edmund McMillen) for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita (both via PlayStation Network with Cross-Save support), PC, Mac, and Linux (all three via Steam with full Steam Play support) on November 4, 2014.

The game is a remake of the 2011 game The Binding of Isaac, rebuilt from the ground-up on a new game engine (removing the limitations of the original Flash engine). It features new pixel art graphics (reminiscent of Super Nintendo and Game Boy Advance games) and a completely new soundtrack.

All of the original content, including its Wrath of the Lamb expansion, are included in addition to a variety of new content (including new characters, items, enemies, bosses, and challenges), new gameplay mechanics (including difficulty settings, local two-player asymmetrical co-op, and variations to room sizes) and gameplay re-balancing.

Like the original game, players play as Isaac, a naked, crying child who must venture deeper down the dungeons beneath his bedroom floor to escape his sacrifice by his deranged mother. Along the way, he must fight demented monsters and collect twisted powerups (mostly based on biblical or childlike themes).

Players who purchased the game on Steam before December 10, 2014 received an exclusive cosmetic item in Team Fortress 2 (a pair of horns for each class, named Brimstone).

  • The Lost - A secret character unlocked by dying in four consecutive specific deaths.

Items

New Additions

Rebirth contains many new items that modify how Isaac's tears function. Some examples of new items are: Tiny Planet, which causes Isaac's tears to orbit his body; Death's Touch, which cause Isaac's tears to turn into scythes; and anti-gravity tears, which cause Isaac's tears to stay in the air until the player releases the fire button, at which point, the tears will fly off in the direction they were shot from.

As well as this, Rebirth contains many new defensive items, these include: Gnawed Leaf, which allows Isaac to temporarily turn into invulnerable after staying still for a second; Holy Mantle, which allows Isaac to absorb the damage of one hit per room; and Pyromanic, which allows Isaac to heal when being struck by explosions, rather than being harmed by them.

Dynamic Items and Item interactions

Quite a few items in the original game allowed for extremely powerful synergies. However, these stacked effects did not always appear or behave how the player might have assumed.

With Rebirth, the item stacking has been reworked to allow for many more dynamic effects. For example, any items giving the player a laser based attack, now dynamically generate the laser.
