Edmund McMillen is one of the more successful indie developers out there. His games, Gish and Super Meat Boy, have given him much acclaim in the gaming world, and he even had Sundance Award winning documentary, Indie Game: The Movie, chronicle his life and struggles while in pursuit of his passion.
Now he finally has another multimillion selling hit to add to his resume.
McMillen's controversial project The Binding of Isaac (co-developed with Florian Himsl) has crossed the two million unit sold mark after being available on the market for two years now. He confirmed the figures on a YouTube interview with Northernlion.
"In the first year we sold a million copies, and now we're already up to two million. It's nuts … It would be awesome [for the remake] to come out before the end of the year."
McMillen has never been one to shy away from pushing the borders of morality in video games. The game stars a young boy named Isaac who has been locked in his room by his psychopathic mother. He must defend himself from the demons in his bedroom while a disembodied voice encourages his mother to murder him for being evil with sin and proving her faith.
The remake he mentions alludes to The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, an updated version with more content and randomization. It will be available for the PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
Alongside the remake, McMillen has also teamed up again with Tommy Refenes at Team Meat to churn out their next project, Mew-Genics.
