Edmund McMillen. If you’re not familiar with the name then you probably haven’t been involved in the Indie PC gaming scene. He is the creator behind The Binding of Issac and all of the additions to that game and is widely considered a video game developing genius. Well his next game has been finally shown off and is slated for the second half of 2018.
The Legend of Bum-bo (hehe) is seemingly a turn based RPG crossed with a shape matching game similar to that of game such as Candy Crush. You match up your symbols on the board of different shapes and symbols that you have and then you can make an attack on enemies. This is a really interesting mechanic and may very well shake up the RPG genre is the same way that Undertale was able to when it’s unique gameplay was revealed. Also most interestingly this is stated to be a prequel to the Binding of Issac so fans of that series are sure to find some nice easter eggs and hints to the lore of the universe. Let’s just hope this game is as successful as Edmund’s previous entry.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
