Braid is a puzzle-platformer, drawn in a painterly style, where you can manipulate 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.

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.

Introducing the Humble Indie Bundle 2!

Pay-what-you-want for five awesome DRM-free games on Mac, Windows, and Linux: Braid, Machinarium, Osmos, Cortex Command, and Revenge of the Titans.

If you haven't heard of Revenge of the Titans before, it's because it is being launched directly into the bundle. Another cool Humble Bundle exclusive is that Braid and Cortex Command are available on Linux for the first time inside of the bundle.

The bundle comes equipped with two soundtracks and one mini-album for Machinarium, Osmos, and Revenge of the Titans.

Make sure to watch the video below:

Be sure to watch it in HD! Like last time, you can divide your purchase between the developers and our two favorite charities: the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play Charity. However, new this time is a customizable "Humble Tip" which goes to fund a new company Jeff and myself recently started: Humble Bundle, Inc. We have some humble ideas on how to change digital distribution that we're going to try out.

Don't worry though, this should not change anything for Wolfire fans. This is just putting a different label on what we've already been doing for some time. It makes it more clear that the core Wolfire team developing Overgrowth is really David and Aubrey, while Jeff and myself will be able to make Humble Bundles even if a Wolfire game is not inside of it. We will still be around helping out though, as we have been during the development of the Humble Indie Bundle 2.

Please make sure to spread the word by tweeting, clicking the like button on the YouTube video, and sharing the bundle on Facebook.

I think my beard may make a reappearance this week as I probably won't have time to shave. Though this year instead of trying to man the live chat by myself there will be reinforcements from friends, and fellow game developers.

The Humble Indie Bundle 2 won't be around forever so check it out now!

Only voted a 9 because of that glitch with the puzzle pieces. I'll change my vote later if I notice it's been fixed.

So glad to see that the Linux version is available through Desura now as well.

It's a great game, although support for the Linux version is somewhat lacking, it works great under Windows.

Brilliantly beautiful game. I've loaded this game and suddenly lost hours absorbed in its art and gameplay. Hooray for independent, innovational games!

I cant believe it took me this long before I purchased and played Braid. It's beautiful, extremely well thought out and is the first game in years(!) to actually absorb me into its world.

9.5/10 from me, also voted for you guys :)

One of the best modern 2D platformers/logic games. Not only because of mechanics but also amazing, deep story. Just one flaw - too short!

Why are people complaining that it's too short? I got it with HIB#2 and I still haven't finished it :(

Oh well, maybe I'm just slow.

It would be very difficult to adequately put into words how much I enjoyed Braid. It has, without a doubt, left a lasting impact on what I expect from indie games, raising my expectations to a level that only a handful of other games can possibly complete with. In terms of gameplay, Braid is original, refreshing and clever to the point where I was stuck for a good half hour in places and, I am ashamed to say, had to resort to a guide to finish certain levels. Some of the puzzles are fiendishly difficult…
