After surprisingly strong sales, creepy dungeon crawler The Binding of Isaac may be coming to consoles.

Freaky dungeon crawler, The Binding of Isaac certainly seems to have captured people's hearts - the game has sold over 700,000 copies since it was released back in September of last year. 1/5th of those sales were made during the three weeks following the release of the title's first expansion, The Wrath of the Lamb.

Since the launch of said expansion was a bit on the rough side, the developer has released a free update that fixes a few outstanding bugs and adds new content, achievements, music and another ending.

"Who would have thought a game about an abused child fighting off his mother with his tears could ever sell 700k copies in less than a year? Not me, that's for fucking sure," tweeted designer, Edmund McMillen, whose previous work includes Super Meatboy, Gish and Cunt.

"This is also a big thank you to the fans who have honestly carried this game to stardom," he continued. "We are eternally grateful for your support, creativity and devotion. 700k is a big number... maybe it's time to bring this thing to console. ;)"

Back in February, Nintendo decided not to allow Binding of Isaac to appear on the 3DS, apparently due to its "questionable religious content."
