Edmund McMillen Teases “The Legend of Bum-Bo”


In a post on the official Binding of Isaac blog, developers Edmund McMillen and James Id have teased their new project, The Legend of Bum-Bo: Bum-Bo Want Coin!. The new game is, in McMillen’s own words “a turn based puzzle RPG type thingy that’s randomly generated.” The post also hinted at a connection to the Binding of Isaac games, though didn’t offer much beyond the usual cryptic hints.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume Bum-Bo is the little bum guy in Binding of Isaac who poops out items in exchange for coins. I guess that explains the subtitle.
