Eden is a playable character in The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls. They were unlocked in the "The Chest" stretch goal in the Kickstarter Campaign.

Starting card[edit | edit source]

Unlike other characters, Eden gets to choose their starting card. When the game begins, the person playing as Eden looks at the top 3 cards in the treasure deck. Once they chose one of these cards, it becomes their starting card, and gains the "Eternal" buff. This is a reference to The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, in which Eden starts with random items (and hairstyles) every time.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Due to the fact that he has no starting card, a strategy for Eden cannot be made. You'll just have to hope you get a good card (eg. Mom's Knife ) out of the three you get to select from.

Additional notes[edit | edit source]

  • Eden cannot benefit from choosing treasures that destroy themselves for some effect as their starting item, because the items gain the "Eternal" property and cannot pay the cost of destroying themselves for their effect to trigger. Glass Cannon is an exception to this, because the self destruction is not the cost, but an additional effect.[1]
  • Eden was a reward for completing "The Chest" challenge during the Kickstarter campaign. This involved parents (over 50) getting to the Caves in TBOI without cheating, with video evidence, people getting TBOI artwork tattooed on them, people hiding in chests/boxes, and taking pictures with Edmund McMillen, the game's creator. They was said to be "arguably the most fun to play as"
