Default Braid

Anyone playing Braid on XBLA?
What a surprise! A totally innovative platform puzzler, with beautiful painterly graphics (screenshots really don't do it justice), a haunting soundtrack and an engaging, thought provoking story. The first couple of times you see the time-control mechanisms at work you're gonna be amazed. It's just so cleverly done!
The puzzles are very well done too, and many will have you scratching your head for while or simply give you a headache from trying to think in four dimensions (space + time) for a change.
The ending is suitable cool and bizarre. You won't have seen anything quite like it

Yes I love this game. Great twist near the end too. The music is amazing and the vibe of the game really sucks you in. Some of the puzzles are so hard to figure out.

KoS did you know there are also (I think) 5 stars to collect? I haven't tried it yet, but good luck

I really enjoyed playing this game. The music was brilliant and the puzzles require you to think in ways that games typically don't challenge you. When you finally figure out some of the hard screens, you feel like a genius - and other times, you'll be slapping your head for wondering how you could have ever missed the solution for so long.

It comes out on PC in a few weeks, I believe.

Now available for purchase on PC for those that are interested. I think a Steam release is coming eventually.
