The Binding of Isaac undergoing a rating change in Germany due to charges of "blasphemy"
The Binding of Isacc has recieved a rating change in Germany. The game was originally given a 12+ (um...why?) but has now been bumped up to a 16+.
Was it due to the graphic violence or the disturbing imagery? Nope. It's because some are offended by the game's take on the biblical Abraham and Isacc story. It was only matter of time before something like this happened.
Here's what creator Edmund McMillen had to say about the whole situation:
"Turns out Isaac is the 1st and only game to ever get its rating raise to 16 because of "Blasphemy" it actually had a 12+ 1st.."
Well, if your game is the first ever to get its rating raised due to blasphemy, you may as well celebrate it...I guess.
Maybe he should give the Guinness people a call.
