The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ Gets Josuke and Crazy Diamond Mod
Mods can be a beautiful thing. When a game is easily modifiable, it allows the community to real go wild and make some brilliant creations. The announcement of The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth being mod friendly, with support in the Steam Workshop, had me excited. So far, the mods I’ve played have not disappointed, but most pale in comparison the recently released character Josuke and Crazy Diamond Mod. Josuke and Crazy Diamond are characters from the anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. The fact someone made them as playable characters in The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+, is amazing. Check below for more on the Josuke and Crazy Diamond Mod.
About the Josuke and Crazy Diamond Mod
The Josuke and Crazy Diamond mod was created by Steam Users melon and NotYourSagittarius. The creators describe their mod on the Steam Workshop page:
With this mod, play as both Josuke and Crazy Diamond from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable! While Josuke pelts foes with tears at range in typical Isaac fashion, Crazy Diamond charges up and rushes in for flurries of punches when shooting keys are released, and both can be used in conjunction to focus on multiple targets at once or rack up loads of damage. Fun for everyone, not just Jojo fans!
Crazy Diamond is a new, special-made type of familiar which is very responsive and easy to control, sending him to intercept targets or even groups of enemies at melee range, doing high damage and knocking them back. Additionally, he is affected by every character stat, almost all tear effects, and has several special-case synergies to change how you play, so items can have as wild and varied effects on him as they do actual characters!
More than that however, to be true to Josuke and the theme of Diamond is Unbreakable, Josuke and CD can punch some broken things and creatures back into working order, turning them into temporary or sometimes permanent new friends to help you on your way, giving you practically a small army of allies to clear out room after room. What other creative ways can you find to use this power? (Source)
