Edmund McMillen, creator of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, is working on a subscription plan that offers a monthly box of Isaac merchandise.
The Unboxing of Isaac is the name of the service McMillen launched with Maestro Media, the company behind the tabletop game The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls. Binding of Isaac fans can look forward to a variety of goodies in the monthly pack, including shirts, artwork, stickers, and each box contains three new cards for the tabletop game.
in a press release shared with game informer, we have the first three months of content and topics related to it. It also shares a quote from McMillen on why this subscription box exists.
“During Kickstarters, the most requested item was the T-shirt, and while we did a few, we really wanted to push it forward with a line of bold and creative Isaac-themed merchandise that fans would love,” McMeely Lun said. “You asked, we listened!”
