The Binding of Isaac Rebirth Intro

Description

"Isaac and his mother lived alone in a small house on a hill. Isaac kept to himself - drawing pictures and playing with his toys as his mom watched Christian broadcasts on the television. Life was simple and they were both happy. That was, until the day Isaac's mom heard a voice from above. "Your son has become corrupted by sin. He needs to be saved." "I will do my best to save him, my Lord," Isaac's mother replied, rushing into Isaac's room, removing all that was evil from his life.

Again, the voice called to her. "Isaac's soul is still corrupt. He needs to be cut off from all that is evil in this world and confess his sins." "I will follow your instructions, Lord. I have faith in Thee," Isaac's mother replied, as she locked Isaac in his room away from the evils of the world.

One last time, Isaac's mom heard the voice of God calling to her. "You've done as I've asked, but I still question your devotion to Me. To prove your faith, I will ask one more thing of you." "Yes, Lord. Anything," Isaac's mother begged. "To prove your love and devotion, I require a sacrifice. Your son, Isaac, will be this sacrifice. Go into his room and end his life, as an offering to Me to prove you love Me above all else." "Yes, Lord," she replied, grabbing a butcher's knife from the kitchen.

Isaac, watching through a crack in his door, trembled in fear. Scrambling around his room to find a hiding place, he noticed a trapdoor to the basement, hidden under his rug. Without hesitation, he flung open the hatch, just as his mother burst through his door, and threw himself down into the unknown depths below."

His mother was far too strong for him, but, just as he accepted his fate, God intervened, sending an angel down from above to stop his mother's hand and, just like that, it was over."

Description

Pictures slowly fall into the chest as the song Tomes plays. The pictures are as follows:

  1. Isaac's dad, Isaac, and Mom (left to right) are in a family photo. Isaac is looking to Mom, him and his dad with gaping smiles, Mom with a closed smile.
  2. A child with a pink dress and long, yellow locks, supposedly Magdalene, is holding Mom's hand, who happens to be wearing the same clothes and sporting identical hair, in the yard outside of the house. They both have gaping smiles. There is a singular tree in the background.
  3. Isaac is taking a picture of himself, looking only moderately upset. A black figure with horns crouches near the corner of his room. The shadowy appearance it has makes it hard to tell if it is looking back at Isaac or looking towards the wall.
  4. Isaac's dad and Mom (left to right) are holding hands with gaping smiles on their faces. Isaac's Dad is looking at Mom, while Mom seems to be looking straight ahead.
  5. Isaac is alone in the yard (where the girl and Mom were playing in picture 2) and is moderately upset. The same tree sits in the background.
  6. Isaac has his hands over his head/face in a melancholy manner and is slouched in front of the chest.
  7. Mom has a gaping frown and a mad expression. She is holding up a knife, seemingly ready to stab.
  8. Isaac and Mom (left to right) are looking out of their window, facing away from the camera. Mom has her hand on Isaac's back/shoulder, and it is unknown as to whether Isaac has his hand on Mom or in front of him. A bald figure in the distance is walking away. This is assumed to be Isaac's dad leaving them. The same tree sits in the background.

Isaac is crying in the chest and is gasping/hyperventilating and whimpering- his heart pounding and getting faster and faster. He is possibly looking out of the chest's keyhole. Guppy's paw (possibly just the paw or the entire cat) is seen- completely motionless. Isaac keeps flashing between himself and a demonic version of himself with horns, red eyes, and black skin (this is not Azazel; Azazel has a broken horn). He eventually completely turns into the demon, breathing heavily and demonically. His heart stops but the demonic breathing continues.
