"One of the best puzzle-platformers ever. Great game and much deeper than it's 'time rewind' gimmick would have you believe on first glance."

Updates

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

Про цю гру

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. The time behaviors include: the ability to rewind, objects that are immune to being rewound, time that is tied to space, parallel realities, time dilation, and perhaps more.
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.
Key features:
  • Newly added Steam Cloud support
    Save your in-progress game to the cloud, then play where you left off from on any Steam connected computer.
  • Forgiving yet challenging gameplay:
    Braid is a 2-D platform game where you can never die and never lose. Despite this, Braid is challenging — but the challenge is about solving puzzles, rather than forcing you to replay tricky jumps.
  • Rich puzzle environment:
    Travel through a series of worlds searching for puzzle pieces, then solving puzzles by manipulating time: rewinding, creating parallel universes, setting up pockets of dilated time. The gameplay feels fresh and new; the puzzles are meant to inspire new ways of thinking.
  • Aesthetic design:
    A painterly art style and lush, organic soundtrack complement the unique gameplay.
  • Nonlinear story:
    A nonlinear fiction links the various worlds and provides real-world metaphors for your time manipulations; in turn, your time manipulations are projections of the real-world themes into playful "what-if" universes where consequences can be explored.
  • Nonlinear gameplay:
    The game doesn't force you to solve puzzles in order to proceed. If you can't figure something out, just play onward and return to that puzzle later.

What if you could go back in time and undo a mistake?



Braid belongs on a list of top games of all time. It is a work of art.

If you have not played Braid yet, I would ask you to stop what you are doing right now and buy it.

Being a puzzle platformer, Braid has excellent and unique art, music, concept, and story. The simple platformer type works well on both PC and consoles.

My one critique is that the ending is somewhat unfulfiling in that the designer got all artsy-fartsy and left the meaning open to wild interpretation. Either he just didn't have a moral to tell at the end, or he went with the "bluster them with bulls**t" strategy, and I'm thinking it was the latter.

But, even if you don't care about the background story and getting all deep into the meaning of it all, the puzzles should entertain.

Braid is an interesting platformer which seems to be both homage to and parody of earlier platformers, and adds the extra dimension of being able to manipulate time in several different ways (not just rewind). The art is pretty and its story is a fairly raw exposure of the thoughts and feelings of the developer as you (and every other person) grapple with both wanting to move forward and turn back the clock in your life and in your relationships. Instead of distracting, this enhances the gameplay and gives you a rare connection with the developer beyond the mechanics of playing the game.

Overall a Decent game, Especially for the price, however the game does have it's flaws.

Pros:
-Interesting Art Style
-Smooth Controls
-Interesting Puzzle Concepts
Cons:
-To complete the story requires you to get all the puzzle peices,
some of which are best left to a guide to explain how you get them.
-Vsync was bugged the second time I loaded the game, It made the game play at ~24 fps

Regardless of flaws it is definitely a game worth playing, just Expect to look at a guide to actually
finish the game.

It's a wonderful puzzle game with bright environment design and fun mechanics of controling the time to solve the puzzles. However, it's never an easy puzzle game and it would take about 3-4 hours to finish this game. The plot reaches its climax during the last stage of "saving princess". Players can see that everything becomes different while time travels backward, presenting a totally different story that emphasizes on the truth behind the main character and the relationship between his wish and the time control ability.
The music is relaxing. The puzzle is fun. The most challenge part would be the speed run achievement. It's a terrific game which I would recommend for everyone to give it a try.

An addictive puzzle and platform sidescroller, Braid does it all right. Great level design and masterfully timed puzzle challenges make this a great game with a compelling story that will leave you speechless. Highly recommended grab for 15 or less, but worth 20 if you don't find it cheaper.

Yeah, for the longest time I hated this game, but this is actually a brilliant puzzle platformer, one of the earliest of it's kind actually.

Fantastic Indie with impeccable level design and a story that is opaque but has depth. On of the best Indie games ever released.

Such a beautiful game and also so clever. I haven't finished yet, but one of the many great things about Braid is that it gives you some freedom to explore and see the world(s) before knuckling down and solving puzzles.

And the puzzles are often a complete delight. There's a huge amount of satisfaction to be had from suddenly realising how to reach that previously unobtainable key or picture piece. And hey, if your platforming skills aren't quite up to getting there on the first try, you can always rewind time to do it again...

The game teaches you about the gameplay mechanics in marvellously inventive ways that make you want to discover the next trick. And then, when you pull yourself back from what you're doing for a moment, you'll be reminded again that the whole thing looks and sounds gorgeous.

Best puzzle-platformer I've ever played. It's not really an artistic statement though.

Take a moment to imagine the perfect game, a game where if you make a mistake, instead of starting at the level begining, just going back in time and fixing it, as if it never happened. No risk of breaking the space time continum and ruining the enire world, just world breaking fun.

My favorite puzzle game by far (besides Portal, Antichamber, I guess I have too many favorites). It forced you to think outside the box, and also outside of reality and time itself. Using time manipulation to create unique and challenging puzzles is the key factor to why this game is so good. I liked it so much, it was the first game I ever completed completely. All the puzzle pieces have been aquired and put in place. It felt wonderful.

Just buy it, you will not regret a single moment! The music and art work is top notch, the story line is fascinatingly strange, the thought that has been put into solving each level is perfect.
