Summary

Braid is a puzzle-platformer, drawn in a painterly style, where the player manipulates the flow of time in strange and unusual ways. From a house in the city, journey to a series of worlds and solve puzzles to rescue an abducted princess. In each world, you have a different power to affect the way time behaves, and it is time's strangeness that creates the puzzles. The time behaviors include: the ability to rewind, objects that are immune to being rewound, time that is tied to space, parallel realities, time dilation, and perhaps more. Braid treats your time and attention as precious; there is no filler in this game. Every puzzle shows you something new and interesting about the game world. Braid is a 2-D platform game where you can never die and never lose.

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 trick.

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 time.

I'm liking it so far
