The Legend of Bum-Bo | Intro

The first thing everybody should know about Bum-Bo is that he likes his coins. As such, it only makes sense that the new game is going to be discounted to those intelligent souls who pre-order it. But what is The Legend of Bum-Bo, you ask? Well, to those not in the know, The Legend of Bum-Bo is a new deck-building rogue-lite, as well as the prequel to one of my favorite games of all time, The Binding of Isaac. It is also coming to Steam on November 12th, with a 15% discount to the early birds. But since I know you’re all dying for more details, keep reading for some sweet stats.
