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.
How to get started with modding Braid, including accessing the editor and launching custom universes.

Basic Starting a mod.
Braid's readme says that "instructions on how to create mods will be posted separately". Until they appear, we only have the ability to access the editor and enter custom worlds:
To access Braid's editor, run with -editor, then press F11 once the game has loaded.
To play a mod, run with -universe universe_name.
Save this code to a .cmd file to make things a little easier:
@echo off dir "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\braid\universes\" echo. set modname= set /P modname="Select universe (case sensitive): " %=% if EXIST "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\braid\universes\%modname%" ( "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 26800 -universe %modname% ) else ( echo. echo ERROR: Invalid universe name! echo. pause )
Of course, you should change the two paths to Steam if Braid is installed somewhere else on your system.
