Yesterday saw the launch of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign from Edmund McMillen - one of the super-talented minds behind Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac - for a brand new card game based on the world of that latter top-down dungeon crawler - and it's already been completely funded.
Using basic mechanics from the game, The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls has 2-4 players taking turns playing loot cards and using items to kill monsters that yield more items, loot, and sometimes souls. The first player to end their turn with four souls is the winner. According to the crowdfunding page, "cooperation, barter, and betrayal is encouraged".
Amazingly, the project smashed its $50,000 goal in just over an hour and is still rapidly growing with every passing minute. At the time of writing the project has already raised over $480,000 with over 7,000 backers pledging their support. If you want to get in on the action you can check out the Kickstarter page here - there are still 28 days left for you to support the project and the game is expected to arrive with backers this November.
The Kickstarter page talks through the mechanics of the game in incredible detail, and also reveals some behind-the-scenes goodness from its development. We'd encourage you to take a look if you're interested.
