We've been updating the Braid executable on Steam recently and will continue to do so in the near future. We're not adding anything to the game or changing the gameplay in any way; the updates are just about fixing problems running the game for people whose operating system / driver / hardware config is causing problems.

The biggest things we've done are:

* Add a launcher in Windows which will help you set options easily. If you have a mysterious crash, you might try running in windowed mode, for example.

* Enabled Steam's crash reporting, which will help us see what kinds of problems are out there in the world and how widespread they are. (This feature of Steam did not exist when Braid was launched).

It appears that some people are still having crashes even after the update. Usually these crashes are related to graphics drivers, so we always encourage people to try updating their drivers. Apart from that we'll be looking at the newly-instituted error reports and seeing what we can improve.

Steam Big Picture

Info over het spel

Braid is een puzzel-platformer, getekend in een schilderachtige stijl, waar je het tijdsverloop kunt manipuleren in vreemde en ongewone manieren. Van een huis in de stad, reis je naar een reeks werelden en los je puzzels op om een ontvoerde prinses te redden. In elke wereld heb je een verschillende kracht om het tijdsverloop te beïnvloeden, en het is de vreemdheid van tijd die de puzzels creëert. De verschillende soorten tijdgedrag bevatten: de mogelijkheid om terug te spoelen, objecten die immuun zijn voor terugspoeling, tijd die verbonden is aan ruimte, parallelle realiteiten, tijdsdilatatie en misschien meer.
Braid beschouwt je tijd en aandacht als waardevol; er is geen vulmiddel in dit spel. Elke puzzel laat je iets nieuws and interessants zien van de spelwereld.
  • Onlangs toegevoegde Steam Cloud-ondersteuning
    Sla je spelprogressie op naar de cloud, en speel van waar je was gebleven van elke met Steam verbonden computer.
  • Vergevensgezind maar uitdagende gameplay:
    Braid is een 2D-platformspel waar je nooit kun doodgaan en nooit kunt verliezen. Desondanks is Braid uitdagend — maar de uitdaging komt van het oplossen van puzzels in plaats van je te dwingen om lastige sprongen opnieuw te maken.
  • Puzzelrijke omgeving:
    Reis door een reeks werelden op zoek naar puzzelstukjes, en los dan puzzels op daar tijd te manipuleren: terugspoelen, parallelle universa creëren, plekken met gedilateerde tijd opzetten. De gameplay voelt fris en nieuw aan; de puzzels zijn bedoeld om nieuwe manieren van denken te inspireren.
  • Esthetisch ontwerp:
    Een schilderachtige kunststijl en weelderige, organische soundtrack die de gameplay aanvult.
  • Niet-lineair verhaal:
    Een niet-lineaire fictie verbind de verschillende werelden en geeft realistische metaforen voor je tijdsmanipulaties; op zijn beurt zijn jouw tijdsmanipulaties projecties van realistische thema's in speelvolle “wat-als” universa waar de gevolgen onderzocht kunnen worden.
  • Niet-lineaire gameplay:
    Het spel dwingt je niet om puzzels op te lossen om verder te komen. Als je ergens niet uit komt, speel dan verder en kom later terug voor die puzzel.

Heres my gushing Braid review that I've been meaning to do for a while. quick summary: buy this game 10/10

Braid is my favourite platform game of all time. There are longer and more difficult games out there, but this is the most complete and potent game I have played in 30 years of doing not much else.

The mechanics and story mingle to create a game which is as deep as you are willing to go. I still sit there staring at the home screen thinking about what this game is really saying.

Even a straight run through with no pause to consider the meaning of the game will give you some of the most technically accomplished puzzles ever put out. There isnt a platformer I can name as diverse as Braid, with each world possesing its own set of rules and opportunities for toying with time. It has made me sit back and clap myself for completing the puzzle. Self congratulating moments are earned in this game but it really does make you feel smarter than you are. Clever, clever game.

The twist will truly mess with your head. As for replayability, after completing the game you can search out for impossibly hidden stars which are sometimes just as hard to reach even once they're located. They alter the final stage piece by piece, allowing for some time bending tricks which unlock a secret ending if you attempt to do something which would seemingly break the game. This in itself gives new answers and new questions to the player.

Braid tests your execution and understanding of your environment. The more you can develop these, the better the game gets. 10/10

It's mindblowing for a side-scroller. It cames to prove my motto: good graphics don't make good games. Furthermore, don't judge a book by it's cover and the smallest flasks holds the bestest perfumes and all the cliché catchphrases.

At first sight, this game seems to be just "one more of the same", but if you are the kind of person who gets thrilled by a good story (yes, it's a side-scroller with story), a little plot twist and written narrative elements, jump in. You won't regret it.

Besides the story, it has innovative puzzles that you must solve using some "tools" like a "flash forward" and "rewind" features. You could read some books at the final of each stage, knowing more and more about the game's story.

In short, it's hard to praise and explain how this game is good without spoil all the fun.

I really want you to play this!

In fact, I can't be totally objective about it, because this game is one of my absolutely favorite ones, but I'm going to state that this the most well-made game in the whole universe.

I mean, not a single component is out or feels weak, everything is how you want and expect it to be, or maybe even beyond your imagination.
I'll try to give a clue about what the game is...

It's a looking-like-Super Mario Bros.-platformer with a deep thrilling storyline and amazing mind-blowing puzzles that that require various manipulations with time.
Our hero is able to turn the time back to the any point after you entered a stage without any limits or restrictions. Basically, you use to switch the time back if you die, so there're no game overs or anything in that kind. You don't have to restart a level when you die, you can just switch back the time to the point you can fix your faults and just move on. But what's more - in this game you use time switches for solving puzzles.

The game is separated by worlds and every world has it's unique features, like time-resistant objects; shadows, that repeat your moves, which were previously recorded by you; a ring, that freezes the time in a little range around it and more. All these things will help you to solve the puzzles and save the precious Princess...or not. The difficulty of some puzzles is pretty challenging, it can require some great patience and irregular way of thinking. Also, the difficulty doesn't really change gradually. Every world has some relaxing and insane puzzles, they're just different in the way of solving. So you won't get bored nor annoyed.

Every world has it's own atmosphere. Fantastic soundtrack and drawn game art will make you shiver every time you touch this masterpiece. Plus the storyline.

Actually, if you play through this game quickly - you might not even notice it, because the whole story is written in the books which you may just skip. But you shouldn't, really. I spent an insane time playing this game before purchasing a Steam copy. Maybe to discover its' secrets, beat all challenges, etc, or maybe just to be in-game, in this gorgeously-made world. But the best thing that I've discovered over time is a plot. It made me look at this game at the absolutely different point of view. I found out that every single world, every single piece of a puzzles that you collect, world's atmosphere and their features - everything is related to the plot, which is rather ambiguous, full of metaphors and sense.

I won't pretend to spoil about it, so just try this out yourself, it's an absolutely unique experience in the wold of games, so don't miss it and play this game right now!
