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.
This game is a frequent go-to when telling people that video games can be very profound. Even in this fantasy world you see such real and strong emotions.
Apart from the outstanding plot, the puzzles are fantastic and keep you guessing until the end. Even finishing the game a few times it can take a moment to remember how to complete a particular section.
The art direction is also phenomenal. Beautiful landscapes and movements
Highest Rated (9 agree) 10/10
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…
