EDMUND MCMILLEN, CREATOR OF THE BINDING OF ISAAC, TAKES AN IDEA OF BELLE DELPHINE AND SELLS HER BATH WATER TO RAISE FUNDS
About a few years ago, youtuber and internet celebrity Mary-Belle Kirschner, better known as Belle Delphine, promoted something quite unusual. What she was doing was selling the water where she had bathed in the tub at her house.
That was through a satirical account on an adult site, and it was under the name GamerGirl Bath Water. Priced at $ 30 a bottle, the first shipment sold out in no time.
BELLE DELPHINE STARTED WITH THE BATH WATER FASHION
The idea turned out to be a success, although it is not known exactly how much she earned by selling her bathtub water. The fact is that many media gave wide coverage to what happened, and it is still the source of many memes.
Maybe that’s what inspired a well-known video game developer to follow her example. This is Edmund McMillen, designer responsible for The Binding of Isaac, Super Meat Boy, The End is Nigh and other games in his career.
On his Twitter account of him, McMillen commented ‘the bath water in this’ Big BOI’ is available on the Kickstarter! 100% real! Be the coolest kid in school! Have water fights! Grow another me! Show how rich you are! ‘
Unlike what Belle Delphine did, this campaign is a fundraiser. This is how it seeks to support The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem. Originally, they wanted to get only $ 100,000.
EDMUND MCMILLEN RAISES CARD GAME FUNDS
But at the time of writing this note there are more than five million dollars. Edmund McMillen’s message is for today, and to get the water he offers, you have to donate $ 2,000.
In view of everything that has been carried so far, it seems doubtful that anyone wants to donate that much. Although donations move very fast, so there is a possibility. Until when will the option to give money in the campaign be available? It will end on July 2.
As we mentioned before, we don’t know how much Belle Delphine made from her bathtub water. But McMillen must be very happy with what he obtained for The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem.
This is an expansion of a similarly named card game, which has become popular with fans of his work. It is to be imagined that he will take advantage of what is left of the money in future projects. Although in this case he has yet to reveal the details.
