Edmund McMillen is an American video game developer and game designer.
Throughout his career, McMillen has developed dozens of Flash games. His enthusiasm for Adobe Flash unfenced the art style and gameplay of Edmund’s games. Some of these games were remade as full-fledged console and PC titles. The most notable example of that is McMillen’s breakthrough 2010 project – Super Meat Boy. This 2D side-scrolling platformer received widespread acclaim from critics, sold more than 1 million copies in two years after its release and made McMillen one of the most famous indie game developers. The other notable project he developed include 2D platforming adventure game The End is Night, top-down roguelike The Binding of Isaac and its remake The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth.
McMillen usually uses cartoony imagery that reminiscent of Flash games. Many of his games incorporate black humor and grotesque. The Binding of Isaac through also shared cartoony art style featured many design elements that were considered to be disturbing and gloomy.
