Binding of isaac - wrath of the lamb. A weird star appeared


#1

I have over 200 hours in this game, but I’ve never seen that weird star until now. O_o

Please tell me someone out there know what it is. :open_mouth:


#2

'Tis the soul of Satan.


#3

So it’s a good thing, right?


#4

Wow, no idea what that is.
I’ve watched far too many hours worth of content of this game (Northernlion on YT, check him out) and cannot remember seeing that. :neutral_face:

Searches of “Pentagram in corner” find nothing of notice, damn.


#5

…I am mildly concerned.


#6

Excuse me?


#7

It’s a joke. :stuck_out_tongue: Pentagrams? Summoning Satan? Mildly concerned parent who thinks their child is possessed? N-no?

…I’ll leave now. ;-;


#8

:sweat_smile:


#9

According to the bible, Satan is much more kind than Yahweh. ^.-


#10

Huh, that’s new to me!

I’ll hop on in a sec and look for it.

Can you remember any specific thing that you did before you got that symbol? I hear beating one of the game’s endings as a certain character gives them a symbol on their character sheet when you pick them but not during gameplay. How odd!

Could be something to do with the new DLC coming out, I suppose?


#11

Oh HOLD UP!

It’s only just occurred to me that you’re playing the old game and not Rebirth, d’oh!

I heard that game was updated recently but I can’t quite recall what was updated, I’ll try and have a look for you!

That article maaaaaaaaaay have something there to explain it, but that’s all I have right about now.


#12

A new DLC? That sounds interesting. :smiley:

Yup, it only appears in Wrath of the lamb. (Dunno if it is also there in the vanilla version).

Didn’t even notice it was updated before I started pocking around on the internet, but I do believe it has something to do with that upate. My roomie just checked to see if I he got it as well and yup, its there.

The video didn’t explain anything about the star/pentagram thing. D:

Perhaps it just means its an updated version of Wrath of the lamb?


#13

That being said though, do you have Rebirth yet?

That’s a silly because question why would you still be playing WoL if you did? It’s a brilliant game!


#14

It’s not a silly question at all. I just prefer WotL above Rebirth.

Here’s a couple of reasons:

  • No enemies that will hit you instantly as you enter a room. (WotL that is)
  • It’s way easier to see Acid blood in the Womb (WotL that is) compared to Rebirth.
  • Some things look horrible in pixel art form.
  • The music in Rebirth is really good, but I still do prefer the music in WotL.
  • The HUD Is better in WotL IMHO.

However, there’s a lot of cool new things in Rebirth, but most importantly you can play co-op in Rebirth… which is why I have started playing that a lot.

… But when there’s nobody around to play Rebirth with me, then I prefer WotL. :stuck_out_tongue:


#15

Completely understandable! Though there is a filter for the pixel art, maybe use that? Can’t say much about the other issues you’ve had with Rebirth so far, if it was online co-op then I would definitely play it with you! :+1:


#16

Yeah, there’s a filter for pixel art, but it’s not gonna help the art assets read better. Oh well. :confused:

And yeah, if only the game supported online co-op. :sob:

… Perhaps that feature will come in an update one day. One can only hope. :smile:


#17

Just gonna leave this here…


#18

Awesome! Great video man. The video also reminds me of how great it is that Rebirth saves your progress.

The video didn’t explain the Star/pentagram thing though. You know anything about that?


#19

…I’m beginning to wonder what the hell kind of game this is… :stuck_out_tongue:

@Bot I’ve been searching Google for answers. Nothing. Sorry. :frowning:


#20

Yeah it is a bit of an odd game but very fun, especially if you’re into rougelike dungeon crawler games!
