Popular dungeon-crawler may be released on console, says Edmund Mcmillen

The Binding of Isaac surpasses 700,000 downloads

Indie hit The Binding of Isaac has surpassed more than 700,000 downloads in just nine months, the game’s developer has revealed.

The figure means that since its September release, the dungeon-crawler has sold approximately 2,600 copies a day.

"Who would have thought a game about an abused child fighting off his mother with his tears could ever sell 700k copies in less than a year?" said the game’s developer Edmund McMillen, as reported by Joystiq.

"Not me, that’s for f*cking sure."

McMillen added that given the impressive number of sales, the he may adapt the game to console.

As well as creating The binding of Isaac, the indie developer has also worked on other popular titles such as Super Meat Boy, which has sold more than one million copies on all platforms since release.
