Nintendo Fans are Making The Binding of Mario!

So you’ve got a game called the Binding of Isaac. Based loosely on Christian religious themes and mythology, it’s an interesting enough roguelike style title where the character has to fight his way through various dungeons located underneath his house’s basement, complete with a fair amount of disturbing content.

And it was rejected by Nintendo, at least initially.

So what better to pay it tribute… than with a Mario edition of the game!

Yes, that’s right. Some people on Reddit have been making a very… unique modification of The Binding of Isaac Rebirth. One where Mario takes the role of Isaac and explores various dungeons filled with characters from the Mario platformers and RPGs. No, we’re not kidding. Here are a few neat screenshots of the game taken straight from the original post:

By god does this look interesting. You’ve got a clinically depressed E Gadd and Rosalina as playable alongside everyone’s favourite standbys of Mario, Luigi and Peach. Fawful is a boss, presumably complete with the same Engrish jokes from his debut games.

All in all, it seems like quite a fun experience if you’ve got a copy of the original Binding of Isaac Rebirth to use it with.

There just seems to be one unfortunate catch…

The game’s download link is broken. Why? Because the entire Binding of Isaac modding website is down for no apparent reason. Hopefully this is just a temporary issue that gets fixed within the next few days or so.

What do you think of this unique Binding of Isaac game mod? Do you like the idea of a religious horror themed game with Mario characters in it?
