We should have known that whatever The Binding of Isaac creator Edmund McMillen was working on next, he wouldn’t do something so mundane as telling us what it is. McMillen enjoys making us dance like puppets, so the teaser for his new project, The Legend of Bum-bo, raises more questions than it answers.
The Legend of Bum-bo is another collaboration with James Id, who directed all the Binding of Isaac trailers. This time, he’ll be handling the programming and 3D, while Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans will return for the audio.
The description of Bum-bo as “a turn based puzzle RPG type thingy that’s randomly generated” poses the following head-scratchers: why is a giant poo a key feature of the logo? Why does it also feature a Binding of Isaac coin? And of course, “but why is this on the isaac blog!? what does this have to do with isaac!? when isaac!? isaac? isaac! why!?”.
All of that we have to wait for, or figure out from the manifold ARGs that are probably embedded in the Tumblr post.
