Thanks to my better half, I’m hooked on a new video game: Braid, a platform game download for the Xbox.


Braid is a game of puzzles that uses time manipulation as both a tool and a philosophical theme. I love how the artwork, a wash of swirling watercolor skies, underscores the sad and mysterious narrative.


Curious lion-like creatures that inhabit the game’s landscape are also a nice touch.


Sadly, I’m not too far from the end of this brief game right now. It’s like a good book that I wish wouldn’t be ending so soon.

John blogged about it on Geek Out New York last week, so I’ll direct anyone interested in reading more to his post.

  1. That looks like a cool game! We don’t have an XBox, though, so unless it gets released for the PS3, I think we’re out of luck. Alas. I’m excited for Little Big Planet, though – it looks fun! :)

  2. Oh, I love Braid. My better half has been playing it as well. I need a game where you get infinate redo’s and cannot fall to your death, so it’s perfect for me. Plus the art is just beautiful.

  3. I LOVE this game. i like how they composed the music such that it sounds cool backwards as well as forwards, especially since I seem to spend more time running time backwards…
