Over To You! Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth Expansion Plans

Design an item, gang

You probably could fill a notebook with all the ideas you've had for improving video games over the years, and I rather wish you had. I'm curious, is all. But if you've had an idea for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Edmund McMillen wants to hear it. He and the Nicalis gang are starting to stretch, think about having a wee, fetching a glass of water, and vaguely preparing to return to work on an expansion for the splendid roguelikelike shmup. And they want to include items designed by fans.

The expansion will also bring a mysterious new mode that McMillen says "will almost double the amount of things you can do". Oh, what a tease!

McMillen explains a little about the expansion in a blog post:

Aside from this new game mode the expansion will feature a ton more enemies, bosses, new areas, endings and a new playable character as well as a slew of new unique items to play with... but here is where you come in.

He's looking for folks to post basic item ideas, without any of the visual and thematic design, in a Reddit thread. Or, if you're creatively bankrupt, you can still vote on other folks' ideas. He'll then cherry-pick the top ten-ish most popular items to flesh out and bosh into the expansion.
