The upcoming turn-based puzzle RPG from Edmund McMillen, “The Legend of Bum-Bo,” has finally received its first official trailer. Check it out below!
Bum-bo is a prequel to The Binding of Isaac, and it will be releasing in 2018 for Steam and mobile. In a post on the game’s official blog, the developers stated they’re “hoping for a Switch release sometime next year.”
The Legend of Bum-bo is a randomly generated, turn based puzzle rpg where you take the role of Bum-bo (from the binding of Isaac) as he punches the faces off hordes of paper goons and takes their coins! …only to gamble them away at the casinos.
Utilizing his bag of trash bum-bo forms pagan glyph’s (via a match 4 puzzle system) that create offensive and defensive attacks and gain specific types of mana to cast epic spells that range from jagging stuff with a fish hook to summoning mom’s leg to crush all who stand in your path.
Every dungeon bum-bo enters will be randomly generated and much like isaac feature hoards of monsters, bosses, traps, puzzles and randomly chosen spells, so each run will be totally unique and each successful play through will unlock more items, trinkets, playable characters and more.
