Edmund McMillen Announces The Legend of Bum-bo!

Creator of <i>Super Meat Boy</i> and <i>The Binding of Isaac</i> announces new project!

Edmund McMillen, the video game designer behind Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, just teased his latest project, The Legend of Bum-bo.

As of now, there are very few details about the game. It's been in development for a few months and this is the first time details have surfaced.

However, this is what we know:

"The Legend of Bum-bo is a turn based puzzle RPG type thingy thats randomly generated."
  • It's a turn-based puzzle RPG.

    On his blog post, McMillen stated that the game is a turn-based RPG that's randomly generated. While it's unclear what "RPG type thingy that's randomly generated" entails, it seems likely that it will include some elements of The Binding of Isaac.

  • James Id is working on the project.

    James Id — if you didn't know — is the mastermind behind all of The Binding of Isaac trailers. He's also responsible for creating the 90's styled Super Meat Boy commercial. Knowing this, we can expect to see some quality footage of the game in the near future.
  • Ridiculon is back. 

    Ridiculon, the musical group behind the soundtrack of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac is also working on the project.

  • The game is connected to The Binding of Isaac universe.

Players everywhere are already theorizing how the game could possibly be connected to The Binding of Isaac, but details are scarce.

With past previous talent back working together on another project, the game already seems to have a lot of potential. Expect to hear more about the game in the upcoming months. Right now, we can only wait and see how it progresses.
