Description: The Binding of Isaac (“Sacrifice of Isaac”) is a computer game in the genre of action-adventure with elements of roguelike and a top-down shooter, developed by Edmund Macmillen and Florian Hemsl, the music for the game was written by Danny Baranovsky, Super Meat Boy composer.
The name of the game and its plot refer to the famous biblical story with the same name: the main character, a child named Isaac, hides in the basement of the house from the mother, whom the “voice of God” ordered to kill his son. By controlling Isaac or another of six characters to choose from, the player must go through several levels of the basement, consisting of a set of procedurally generated rooms and inhabited by hostile creatures. Inside the rooms, the gameplay is designed as a shooter – the character must, “shooting” with his own tears, hit the enemies, while avoiding collisions with them. Death in The Binding of Isaac is irreversible – if a character loses all of his health, the player will be forced to start the game from the very beginning. According to McMillen, the game covers topics such as child abuse, gender identity, infanticide, neglect, suicide, abortion, and also how religion can harm a child — topics that people usually try to avoid.
Although The Binding of Isaac was created as an experimental game during Game Jam, it received high press ratings and gained considerable commercial success: in 2014, more than 3 million copies of the game were sold. The Binding of Isaac was also called a game that attracted the interest of both players and developers to the previously niche genre of roguelike, and includes:

Over 180 types of enemies.
Over 90 deadly bosses.
