Well, shit. The Binding of Isaac clock says over 85 hours now. Has it been that long already? It doesn’t feel like it, but let’s see what progress has been made since last time.
I couldn’t even tell you how much time I spent on Binding of Isaac – Rebirth on Vita a few years ago. The game doesn’t keep track of time played for you, but it must have been quite a lot, as I’ve apparently already logged almost 50 hours on Afterbirth+ and still haven’t done everything I’d done in Rebirth yet.
Binding of Isaac – Rebirth is remake/remaster of the previously released regular Binding of Isaac from years earlier, with updated graphics and a ton of extra content added in. Seems like when you hear people talk about all these roguelike games these days, they always mention this one. The theme and visual design always seemed really interesting to me, but the idea of permadeath and replaying a game over and over again really put me off. I even bought the original version on Steam once for a dollar or so a while back and tried it out and it just beat my ass. For some reason trying the newer version on Vita seemed appealing to me though. I had a feeling I would like the look and feel of this game better on a nice portable…and oh boy was I right.
