Port Request: The Bindings of Isaac: Rebirth

I would absolutely love if one of the amazing creators in here posted this amazing game to the GCW-Zero. I love the gameplay and it being portable on this device would be even better. Much thanks.

This is not possible because the game is not open source, and I doubt the developer is interested in porting to such a low volume platform.

The most similar existing game might be Meritous, but it is not a shooter.

A few months back I was looking at Witch Blast, an open source clone, but it is in SFML which hasn't been ported to GCW-Zero.

I'm also working on a shooting game that may one day have rogue-lite gameplay but knowing the rate of progress, I wouldn't hold my breath  :P

Please, no more requests like these because it is just ridiculous.

As congusbongus said, it is not possible without the game being open source, which means the developers themselves have to port it to GCW Zero, which quite frankely, is unlikely.
But perhaps you could try to convince them to do the port ?

Also, even in the case when it actually gets ported, it will not run smoothly due to how much CPU time the game engine takes...
I mean, seriously... The Binding of Isaac : Rebirth runs like a dog on old hardware, even though it is not very impressive.

Another alternative might be to port LightSpark to the handled so we can play The binding of Isaac (the first, not rebirth) to the GCW Zero.
But i doubt Lightspark can actually play the game...

Or the more likely solution : Port SFML and then Witch Blast.

Sorry for being such a newb. Perhaps clones of the game will be ported, or as had been said, posting the original game. Thanks anyway.
