Bumbo level 1.png
Announcing The Legend of Bum-bo! James Id and Edmund McMillen have been working on this secret project for a few months now and they cant hold their tongues any longer!

The Facts:

  • The Legend of Bum-bo is a turn based puzzle RPG type thingy that's randomly generated.
  • James Id is programming and handling all the 3d aspects of the art as well as a ton of other thankless work Edmund will probably take credit for.
  • Edmund is designing, writing and dealing with the 2d art and character design.
  • Matthias and Jon (Ridiculon) will be handling the audio.
  • Follow on twitter for more cryptic messages.

Bumbo is a difficult game to compare to other games but perhaps the best would be to call it a cross between puzzle quest and isaac mixed a bit with magic the gathering. Its probably good to get that basic description set in stone before we go to far into teasing and too many of you think that it will be some wacky JRPG type paper mario game. It is a randomly generated, puzzle based, turn based, combat driven ball of chaos and poo! And of course it is coming together quite nicely..
