In the film, we touched on the game 'Aether' with Edmund. The scene not only illustrates how personal a game can be, but also serves to show (all too briefly) Edmund's past work, and where he was coming from dev-wise. That scene barely scracthes the surface of Edmund's creative past, which is why we're super happy to point you towards Edmund's latest release.
Today Edmund has released 'The Basement Collection'. It's pretty much a pre-Super Meat Boy anthology of his video game work - put together in a super slick package, brimming with behind the scenes concept art, audio commentary and even 15 minutes of unseen video from our film. It essentially outlines the stepping stones leading to Super Meat Boy and Binding of Isaac - you can get a really great sense of Edmund's voice through this collection.
Six years of game making in one tight four dollar package. It's a perfect companion to the film (or the film is a perfect companion to the collection:) Here's what's in it:
The Basement Collection is a pack of 9 games from the designer of Super Meat Boy and Binding of Isaac, Edmund McMillen.
