Isaac is a young boy who lives alone with his religious mother. After hearing voices from God, Isaac's mother begins restricting her son's freedoms in order to save him from sin. After a while, however, God tells her that the only way to show that she is truly loyal to him is to kill Isaac. Isaac overhears his mother's plot through the door and decides to make a quick dash into the basement in order to save his own life.
The game is a randomly-generated dungeon crawler, so each play-through will be completely different. There are dozens of items which upgrade Isaac's health, abilities, and his main weapon (his own tears). There are over 40 achievements that also unlock new items and characters.
The game is designed to encourage multiple playthroughs, especially since you are going to die. You are going to die a lot, and dying will result in the game restarting. Normally, this might be frustrating, but the game is designed to be enjoyable even if you don't make it to fight the boss (you will need to beat the game several times if you want to get 100% I might add).
