Greetings fellow Tumbleristers. My name is César and I'm a 21 year old kid living in Portugal. Ask me stuff if you need anything.
It's Tyrone and I'm taking over today's update! Adrian and I thought it'd be fun to give you a themed update. So today is officially bombday. We're going to cover some of the really fun bomb weapons in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. OLDBOMBS Let's start with an oldie, but goodie. Oldbombs are Mr. Mega + Bobs curse, Mr. Mega, Bobby Bomb. So that's larger damage radius, poison damage, and homing. Very awesome.For the next few, I'm going to do something fun and not tell you the names of these bombs. It'll be up to you to figure out what they are in two weeks.____BOMBS ( Y ) So these lovely items explode like normal bombs, but damage everything in the room and adds confusion to enemies. Oh yeah, we also get the lovely shit cloud effect. ____BOMBS :( Also like normal bombs, these explode, but an added bonus of Tammy's effect (shooting tears around the bombs). ___BOMBS! Aside from exploding, these also do contact fire damage, which I like. And they leave flames in their wake. Buuut wait, we're not done. I also want to tell you about a little collaboration we're doing with Alex Hicks. You may or may not know him, but you should! I like you he's a huge Isaac fan, logging hundreds of hours on the original. You can follow him on Twitter: @zombolis Ed and I are working with him on an updated release trailer with some of his 3D magic. I'm going to let him take it over from here. "I'm 31. I live in Denver, been doing motion graphics professionally for 10 years. I wanted to work on a project to teach myself a bit more 3D and was very hyped by the existing Rebirth trailers. I wanted to make something moody and atmospheric that super fans like me would get the most out of. Lots of references and attention to detail.
I sketched the basics out on paper and then started building pieces in 3D. I styled it, timed it and really gave it it's look and feel in After Effects.
I posted the trailer to Reddit and got great response. Tyrone, Edmund and Danielle all retweeted it, and eventually got in contact with me to see about making some adjustments to use it in an official capacity. We broke it down floor by floor and added things to make it tell the right story and feel more Rebirthy. The guys gave me beta access and as I played, I'd come across new items/features etc that I thought would be cool to cameo. I'd go through and do a pass, cramming more stuff in, and then another and another.
The end result is a much better trailer than I originally created and something I am very proud to have been a part of! Ed and Tyrone have been great to work with and I hope to do more with them in the future."
We're almost exactly two weeks from release. Is your body ready?
