The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem

Created by Edmund McMillen

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. Credit card charges will appear as: Maestro Media

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Backerkit will Lock Down February 1
about 2 years ago – Sat, Jan 22, 2022 at 08:17:08 PM

Hello friends,

Just a friendly reminder that we’re very close to our negotiated print runs and will need to stop add-ons on February 1st. If you were thinking about adding additional items to your order, now is the time to do so.

Here’s how to make add-ons easy:

  • Email [email protected]
  • Tell them what items you’d like to add to your pledge. If you can’t remember what all you’d like to add, you can check out the pre-order store, it will have everything except The Tainted Isaac Figure, the Guardian Angel Tier add-on, the Everything but the Sketch tier add-on, and Tapeworm Pink Box.
  • Give them permission to immediately charge your card so you have your items locked in.

Keep in mind, this will not effect folks who might want to change the language of their game when we’re able to show you those cards. You will still be able to do that after February 1 by emailing [email protected].

If you haven’t filled out your pledge yet, or you’re concerned that you might not have, you can recover your pledge HERE by putting in the email you used to back the game. Doing this will send a link to your email to get back into your pledge. If you haven’t filled out your pledge, this will allow you to complete your survey, which you have to complete to get the game shipped to you. We need your information to ship your stuff to you, if you don’t fill it out, we can’t send you your rewards! If you have filled out your pledge, it will land on a “congratulations” page letting you know that you’ve successfully filled out your pledge and asking if you’d like to socially share with people.

Again, if you have any questions, please do not message the creator on Kickstarter, email [email protected] or ask your question in the comments section of the Kickstarter for quick answers.

What's Ahead?

Hello Friends,

After you read this update, join in on the conversation on our official Discord HERE. Connect with fans, find people to play our games with through Tabletop Simulator, discover new games, and be among the first to hear about the upcoming projects. 

Card Translations

We're working diligently with our Localization partners to get the files translated and get previews to our backers. We've read through the comments from all the way back in Update #27 and Update #11 as well as comments from those timeframes in the comments section. Edmund took a poll on Twitter. And we're talking to our Localization partners about best practices in the specific territories about the translation of the card Titles. We will be making those decisions soon in each territory and hope to have some examples of the cards in the next 6 weeks. Don't worry, you will be able to change your language decision after we show those cards off.

 Additional Merch Showoffs

The Monstro Plush is approved and ready for production. Here's the first look video from Edmund:

Another look at the Angel Isaac Figure, which has made the journey across the seas and is in Edmund's hands as I write this!

Give the Isaac Stress Ball a good squeeze and feel your worries melt away.

Lunar New Years

Every year in late January and February, our manufacturing partners celebrate Lunar New Years. This is a massive, month-long event that also happens to coincide this year with the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. Because of this, the entire month of February will be dark for our manufacturer. We will keep working on translations and on other fun things, but February will be a slow month for the production of Four Souls.

Upcoming Announcements

We're bursting at the seams to talk about our upcoming projects, but we do like to keep an air of mystery until the future becomes the present. So read on if you'd like some unspoily spoilers about what is next:

  • Some fun new things to unbox very soon
  • An expansion to a hyper game
  • A destructive construction game
  • A unique new way to play a super game
  • A huge announcement with an independent creator

Limited Supplies Remaining, Pre-Order Store Closing Soon

You're all ravenous, there have been so many additions to people's orders and new people pre-ordering that we are getting close to hitting our negotiated print runs for a lot of our merchandise. Tell your friends who are waiting to order to act now, the Pre-Order store for The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem will be closing soon (right now we're estimating February 1). We'll be working to negotiate higher print runs, but if you're thinking about emailing us to add-on some merchandise, now is the time to do it.

Please note THIS DOES NOT apply to changing the language of your game once we show you those translated cards as the number of games being printed isn't changing.

How to get ahold of us

Please don't "message the creator" in Kickstarter. The inbox is not well monitored as we use the Maestro Support Kickstarter account to communicate. If you have questions, please direct them to [email protected] or post them in the comments section for quick answers.

Here's to a great 2022!

Hello Friends,

What a year this has been, as it winds down we wanted to share one last gift with our fans. The official Tabletop Simulator workshop for The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem is complete. You can now play your favorite game with your favorite expansion just in time for a little holiday distraction. No more family arguments, no more having to dress in ugly sweaters, no more being forced to decorate against your will. Come join your friends for a round of Four Souls in this fantastic virtual environment designed by our friends Jerb and Maths. Click HERE for the link to the workshop.

If you're unfamiliar with Tabletop Simulator, it's a virtual game space where you can play The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls and a ton of other tabletop games with friends all over the world. It is unaffiliated with our game, just a host space, but it's currently on sale on Steam through January 5th for 50% off. Once you have Tabletop Simulator, you'll need to subscribe to our free [OFFICIAL] The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls workshop to play.

The game is waiting for you!

Find players whenever you want to play by joining the Maestro Media Discord and use the #tts-requiem-recruiter channel to find people to jump in a game. Use the #game-room-text and #game-room voice channels to chat during your game! It's a great place to chat with fellow fans and get the latest news on upcoming games. You may even be asked to playtest a game or two!

Amazing Fan Art!

We love fanart! It's always a thrill seeing Edmund's art inspire others. We want to start sharing more fan art at the bottom of our posts. Make sure you @themaestroteam on Twitter and Instagram when you're sharing yours and we'll showcase some in the next updates. Just in time for the holidays we got some amazing art from @ch0rus_ and we wanted to share it with you:

Prototypes are Arriving!
about 2 years ago – Sun, Dec 19, 2021 at 12:07:37 AM

Hello friends,

The holidays are coming and we just wanted to take a moment as a company to say thank you again. Maestro Media sprang out of a desire to create the greatest games and connect with the most passionate audiences. You've all proven to be the passionate audience, and with your help over the past couple months giving card feedback, we're going to deliver the greatest game.

If you don’t follow @edmundmcmillen or @themaestroteam on Twitter, you haven’t seen the latest reveals! We’re rounding the corner on mass production, it’s an exciting time, and what better time of year than this?

We’ll start with a couple pictures.

Here’s the first look at Blue Baby with the companion plush. A lot of time and effort went into making this the perfect piece of sh*t, and we really feel there’s endless possibilities here.

Edmund’s been adding to the collection for those backers of the Mystery Box tier. We won’t spoiler everything, otherwise it wouldn’t be a Mystery Box, but here’s a little peek at some items that will make it into some of the boxes!

These items are not guaranteed in your mystery box

Perhaps pictures aren’t enough for you though, how about some videos? First we have the stickers, notice as Edmund is peeling the back away that the backing is transparent.

This next one is all about the dice, but you may notice a few other things also in the shot.

How about one of the first looks at the Big Boi Box in all of its glory?

Finally, a great look at Baby Plum. First a warning, while we can’t stop you from punching, kicking, throwing or emulating this video, we don’t recommend using Baby Plum in this way it’s too adorable.

Have a happy holidays and we'll see you all again soon,

~The Maestro Team
