The Binding of Isaac gets rejected on the App Store
Will it be reborn?
It's quite surprising how the announcement of The Binding of Isaac on mobile went from a tweet that sounded like a joke to some screenshots and videos that showed the game running without actually anyone confirming it was coming at all.
Well today it's even weirder as producer Tyrone Rodriguez posted a screenshot of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth getting rejected on Apple's App Store.
Per Apple's rules, a game can be rejected if it features violence towards children. While it may sound fair at first, it's quite weird how Limbo and The Walking Deadcan be accepted on the App Store when they feature a much more graphic representation of violence towards children.
Furthermore, Apple does have a 17+ rating in effect on the App Store that should be used for such cases.
In any case, I hope that's simply a misunderstanding or another quirk in the App Store approval process and that The Binding of Isaac will come to iOS, unadulterated. I mean come on, it's a game that even Nintendo approved...
