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.
