The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem

Update: Preorders open again until March 31 or until we sell out again -- whichever comes first! After selling out on our initial preorders, we've since secured another small print run of Four Souls Requiem. Only pre-ordered copies of the game come with an exclusive 10th Anniversary Isaac card. Pre-order the retail version of The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem and the add-ons from the original Kickstarter campaign. All orders placed now will ship in Fall 2022. Please note that we are still finalizing the design of some of our products and there may be subtle differences between the items shown here and the final products.

Isaac Turns 10!
9 months ago – Fri, Oct 01, 2021 at 09:30:36 PM

Happy Birthday Isaac!

On this day in 2011 Isaac was introduced to the world in The Binding of Isaac on Steam. Nine Million+ copies of the game and ten years later Isaac still brings joy, sorrow, love, and endless entertainment to people all across the world. Whether you came to this Kickstarter as a long-time fan or a complete newb, we're glad you're here to celebrate with us. We'd love to hear your Isaac stories in the comments below.

As part of the anniversary celebration we are happy to announce the Exclusive 10th Anniversary Isaac card. Everyone who backed for a tier that includes a game, will receive this 10th anniversary Isaac card with their game. Birthday Cake:

If you have friends who didn’t back the Kickstarter and are bummed about not getting any exclusive cards, this 10th Anniversary Isaac card will also be included with pre-orders of the game HERE for a limited time.

Livesteam!

We haven't done this in awhile, join Edmund tonight on his YouTube channel for a livestream of the first ten years of Isaac. 21:30 (9:30) PST/04:30 UTC

We are overwhelmingly proud to work with our friend Edmund McMillen to bring this world to the fans and just want to say congratulations on this incredible milestone. Here's to the first 10 years and to the next 10.

Backerkit Will Charge Cards September 30th-October 2

If you haven't seen the last few updates please know that Backerkit will lock orders on September 30th and cards will be charged the 48 hours following that. Don't worry though, if you'd like to purchase add-ons after September 30th, it's as simple as reaching out to the Backerkit team (https://boirequiem.backerkit.com/faq#contact-us) and requesting they unlock your pledge. And if you change addresses between now and the game shipping, don't worry, we'll be sending out a last call for address changes email right before we give that info to the Fulfillment Centers.

Manufacturer Prototypes!

If you don't follow @edmundmcmillen or @themaestroteam you missed the reveals yesterday. Our manufacturing partners have been hard at work crafting the BEST MERCHANDISE ever seen on a Kickstarter, and I have to say, they've delivered. These beauties will be packed into a container and sent our way soon for final approvals but we're moving right along with manufacturing.

First let's talk the figures. Here they are in all of their glory:

*Stapler, plant, pens, etc not included with purchase

Next up we have the plushes and they are HUGE! One surprise, the first look at Baby Plum. I'll have some better pictures of Baby Plum to share soon, but what a great surprise:

*Human hands, Apple Computer, calculator, etc not included with purchase

Finally, our friends have been getting really comfy around the office in the incredibly fashionable Beanies:

*You know the drill, nothing else included with beanie purchase

 REMEMBER! Backerkit Charges Cards September 30th-October 2 

We're going to end today just like we began. Backerkit will lock orders on September 30th and cards will be charged the 48 hours following that.

Lilith and New Card Reveals Inside!
9 months ago – Sat, Sep 25, 2021 at 04:19:39 AM

Hello Friends,

The production team has been extremely busy behind the scenes and we wanted to share the progress with you. September is extremely busy on deliverables. Templates for the boxes are being finalized, the cards are getting the finishing touches and we should be showing you them soon! We received the final prototype for Lilith!

More Card Reveals

It's been awhile since we've shown off some card art. We miss having cool reveals to talk about. WE'RE CHANGING THAT RIGHT NOW! First off, we're extremely pleased to announce our new Alt Art Card from none other than MeatCanyon! Click on that link to check out his insane and NSFW YouTube channel.

Second, during the final boss fight, when you all defeated The Beast in epic combat! In the livestream Dice Roll 1! Edmund rolled a 19. We were all tired, things were said, promises were made and somehow people thought that meant that we could make a Darkest Dungeon Warp Zone a reality...

Well we did it dammit! The Collector from Darkest Dungeon is now a part of the Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Warp Zone collection and is exclusive for you.

The train keeps rolling, Isaac is ALMOST 10 Years old! We'll be back soon with even more goodies to show off soon. 

Backerkit Will Charge Cards September 30th-October 2

Just another reminder that Backerkit will lock orders on September 30th and card will be charged the 48 hours following that. Don't worry though, if you'd like to purchase add-ons after September 30th, it's as simple as reaching out to the Backerkit team (https://boirequiem.backerkit.com/faq#contact-us) and requesting they unlock your pledge. And if you change addresses between now and the game shipping, don't worry, we'll be sending out a last call for address changes email right before we give that info to the Fulfillment Centers.

Big Boi White Box
9 months ago – Tue, Sep 21, 2021 at 02:31:15 AM

Hello Friends,

It's about to get nerdy up in here, you've been warned! Designing a game is never a straight A-B line, everyone works a little bit differently. We could go on about designing games, but there's already a ton of really good information out there. If you're interested in learning more, I highly recommend the books of Geoffrey Engelstein, the blogs of Ignacy Trzewiczek or Jamey Stegmaier, and the website Boardgamedesignlab.com.

One staple of any design process is the White Box Test. This is the first time we get to see our game start to come together. The manufacturer will send us a completely blank version of the game, the box, or both so we can make sure the game is as we envisioned. This week we got to see the White Box of the Big Boi Box. We've not made a hinged box before so this was an important test to ensure the box looks good and does what we want it to do. I'm happy to say it does both. And it's rugged. But don't take my word for it:

This does not include the latch that we designed before the Kickstarter started to make sure that there was a way to keep the box closed. Don't worry, it will all be combined when they give us a prototype of the game. We're one step closer to this little beauty being a reality:

Speaking of the Big Boi Box. Our current plan is to sleeve the box and add the game logo, pictures, description, and all the legal mumbo jumbo to the sleeve. That way your box remains an epic treasure chest. This sleeve will also be translated so those of you who bought the game in different languages will know exactly which game is which.

BACKERKIT LOCKS 9/30

Just a reminder to everyone that Backerkit locks on 30 September and cards will be charged the 48 hours following that. We realize that between now and delivery of the game that addresses will change, we will send out an email on how to change addresses if needed closer to the delivery date, so don’t worry. If you would like to purchase more items after Backerkit locks, it’s as simple as reaching out to the Backerkit team (https://boirequiem.backerkit.com/faq#contact-us) and requesting they unlock your pledge. This is especially relevant for the folks that want to spread the charges out over several billing statements so we wanted to make it as simple as possible.

If you’d like to make any last minute changes to your Backerkit order, you can either use the email link provided earlier, or head here https://boirequiem.backerkit.com to find your survey again.

Requiem

The game will be finished in October and will be ready to send to the manufacturer. The artwork and wording on all of the cards are going through final tweaking and there will be a few weeks of playtesting and card clarity.

This also means that we will not have examples of the translated cards before Backerkit locks on September 30th. We're aware there are people waiting to make a decision about the language preference based on these examples. We've worked with Backerkit to create an easy fix. In a few months when we show you the translated cards you can head over to https://boirequiem.backerkit.com/faq#contact-us and ask them to update the language if you decide it needs changed. Don't worry, you don't need to remember this link, when we show you the cards we'll include it.

We'll be back with more soon,
