Super Meat Boy developer Edmund McMillen has revealed his most recent PC roguelike, The Binding of Isaac, has shifted more than 700,000 digital copies.

"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?" said McMillen to Joystiq, adding "not me, that's for f*cking sure."

"700k is a big number... maybe it's time to bring this thing to console ;)" teased McMillen. The Binding of Isaac was recently denied a release on the 3DS eShop by Nintendo.

Thanks to Isaac's Wrath of the Lamb DLC, released in late May, the game passed its latest sales milestone, with the expansion selling a fifth of the overall sales in less than three weeks, according to McMillen.

The game's recent Wrath of the Lamb DLC helped the full game reach its latest milestone, said McMillen, but the DLC's less-than-perfect launch had led McMillen to update it to include more content. The free 1.3 update to Wrath of the Lamb adds "items, bosses, enemies, music, secrets and a very hard to attain final ending cut scene that should shed some light on the games story even more."
