Repetance therefore presents itself as the last iteration of the original The Binding of Isaac, and significantly expands the product available up to now. A title that, as already mentioned, has been expanded numerous times, especially after the version Rebirth, which opened the door to numerous expansions of the universe narrative and new gameplay mechanics. Right on the side of the game story, the turbulent and dramatic events of Isaac, a child lost in a terrifying delusion made up of tragic daydreams. A universe full of unspeakable monstrosities, probably caused by a very serious form of psychosis that could also have had its roots in the harsh religious repression inflicted on him by his mother.
A repression, which consequently induced the fragile mind of the child to create an imaginary place, a maze, where you can take refuge in moments of great psychological stress. A dreamlike place, however, where privations and childhood traumas take the form of abominable and disturbing visions. The DLC therefore proposes to elaborate further pieces of the horrid epic of poor Isaac and to also insert new and interesting contents among those already present, with the aim of exponentially increasing the variety of situations available and allowing us to plunge once again into the tormented , and in its own way fascinating, universe of the protagonist.
