As part of his social media campaign for The Binding of Isaac: Requiem, Edmund McMillen has been releasing new cards that bring various other indie darlings into the game. The most recent of these cards adds the Boyfriend and Girlfriend from Friday Night Funkin' to the game.

The Binding of Isaac: Requiem is an expansion to the Binding of Isaac: Four Souls, which will add plenty of new features to the cooperative/competitive card game. One of the features touted on the Kickstarter page are "Warp Zone" cards. These cards feature characters and items from other popular indie games, and more of them are unlocked as fans complete various challenges on social media like "Take and post pictures of yourself worshiping Satan" or "Create a nice grave for Isaac, with a head stone, and give him a proper burial." With the completion of the Ashpit tier, "Something New" was added to the Warp Zone. New as in Newgrounds, with the main takeaway being the Boyfriend and Girlfriend from Friday Night Funkin'.

The Boyfriend is one of the many new characters added to The Binding of Isaac: Requiem, along with Bethany, Jacob & Esau, the Tainted versions of the Isaac cast, and the other Warp Zone characters. His starting item, the Girlfriend, boosts his max health as he rolls more doubles, and she can be tapped to influence his rolls slightly. Also included in the Newgrounds set is the Newgrounds Tank, which boosts attack and health at the cost of monsters being harder to hit, and the Pink Knight from Castle Crashers, who shares the rewards from monster kills, whether they kill it or someone else. Some of the many other indie games that have shown up in the Warp Zone include Slay the Spire, VVVVVV, QWOP, Getting Over It, Nuclear Throne, and Hollow Knight.

You can find The Binding of Isaac: Requiem on Kickstarter.
