The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls hit Kickstarter just yesterday looking for $50,000 to fund a multiplayer card game based on the wildly popular video games. Within just 90 minutes, the goal was met and currently sits at over $133,000 and growing with 29 days left to go and several "stretch goals" already in the bag.

According to the press announcement, the game will take elements of "what fans experienced in the iconic video game series and drop it in physical form onto players' card gaming location of choice". The game is being designed for two to four players and features:

  • four playable characters with their own unique abilities
  • an "endless array of familiar monsters and items from the video game series"
  • decide to barter, play cooperatively or betray opponents

Backers can score digital items to the base game and future expansion packs, collector's editions, and bonus swag.

A working prototype for The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls has already been created and includes 100 Monster Cards, 100 Loot Cards, 100 Treasure Cards, 100 Pennies, 4 Character Cards, 4 Power Cards and 2 dice. Each game begins with players selecting a Character Card and receiving 3 Loot Cards and 3 Pennies. Players then take turns playing Loot Cards to attack monsters in order to gain resources that can be used to purchase items. Once strong enough, players can battle boss monsters that will yield souls. The first player to end their turn with four souls is crowned the winner.
