The Basement Collection is a collection of the Flash-based titles made by Edmund McMillen, similar to his earlier This is a Cry for Help. The game acts as a hub to play the different titles. Most of the included games were updated with additional features or edited versions with new music tracks. For Aether for instance, next to the regular game there are two other modes with a soundtrack by Danny Baranowsky and one by Laura Shigihara. All of the games have the hub controls on the left side of the screen to close the game, mute the sound, read the help section, or change from windowed to full screen and vice versa. The included games are:Additional content includes:
