a little while back, the homie Busdriver asked if he could rework my song “Contrails” and he made this crazy cover/redux/r&b/gospel/glitch insanity while on tour in Paris.  Sadly, it never got finished when his hard drive crashed an he lost the session.  instead of scraping it and throwing it on the junk pile, we decided to master the rough and put it out for free.  peep game! and Reblog if you like it!

366 Games - #001 - The Binding of Isaac

I suck at this game.

And they’re not making it any easier. After fighting Larry Jr. for the umpteenth time, this time wailing on him with a High Priestess tarot and My Little Unicorn, I walk in to Satan’s Room to be fried by Krampus for only the second time. I might have actually made it through the Caves with this loadout, if not for damn Krampus. He ruins other days besides Christmas, evidently.

Eve in caves

So I go back in, with Eve this time. My Little Unicorn is mine again, and the Basement goes down easily. The Caves immediately provide little shooty familiar Sister Maggy, and a rock in my head that provides a DMG UP, but Caves I otherwise wants to be extremely stingy, keeping all of the room powerups in inaccessible areas in the room, and me with zero bombs or ladders to even try. Heading into the boss room with another new familiar, the pretty fly, and a full three hearts is making me almost certainly overconfident…

Eve in depths

But perhaps not by much, as I beat Gurdy almost painlessly, and am granted a breakfast of spoiled milk, and an extra heart.  I pound through The Depths I, take down Monstro II, and teleport directly to Mom, who reduces me to nothing in a moment. But that’s ok, as this time I have an unprecedented 1UP following me around. I even respawn at the same level with all of my other powerups restored, and I now know exactly where Mom’s room is. I struggle through Depths II, take on Mom, make a valiant effort with My Little Unicorn, and get smashed for my trouble. Hmm, well, maybe I’m getting better, anyway.

Eve is dead.

Isaac is cute, but then, I think dead baby jokes are funny, and the squirming they elicit even funnier. The real tragedy of this game, beyond being made entirely in Flash, is that it’s going to turn off plenty of people who think the humor is either vulgar or juvenile, and that’s a damn shame, because this game is as good as they come for providing a nice chunk of game that becomes an almost compulsive habit. The semi-random dungeon layouts, the fickle luck of what items and bosses and minibosses will be arrayed against you, and the knowledge that none of that really matters because if you would just bother to learn some enemy patterns and how to throw those tears a bit more effectively…

Excuse me, I need to go into the basement again.

I still have this poster, re-colored with the cartoon bandanas, that my grandad (RIP) bought me at Toys R Us when I was 6 years old. I’m 32 today.
