Game Overview

Braid is an Indie Puzzle Platformer for the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and PC (Windows, Mac & Linux) with time manipulation mechanics, set against a painterly aesthetic. It also has a storytelling element that is less involved than many modern games, with almost all of the narrative happening through books completely separate from the gameplay areas. Although it has been both criticised and praised for its non-specific and multi-layered approach to story.

Well, I finished it, with some help of a
FAQ in some places, but overall it's a
very good game, and it makes you think a
lot. I dunno if I'm too unimaginative
or what, but I can't find any meaning
to the story though.

Still, it's a
very recommended game, because the
puzzles are damn good

yeah it's really cool, but not the best
game ever or anything like that. I think
it's extremely short too and just when
a world starts to amaze you, it's over.

I have to compare it with World of
Goo though, which is a fantastic example
of a game that shows you a new trick in
every chapter and the chapter is long
enough that you really enjoy the

people also said good things
about the story, but I'm not really
caring about it... more like, I don't
give a f*** about Tim.

Very hard, but the concept is
increidibly cool, and it makes you feel
good when you finally grab the puzzle
piece that tortured you so much

I'm liking it so far
