The trippy world of Braid
    #8814131 - 08/23/08 03:31 AM (10 years, 4 months ago)

So who here has bought the game Braid from the xbox 360 arcade?

Basically, the game is like Mario on acid.  A lot of obvious references to Mario, and then some more ambiguous references to psychedelics.  You solve a series of puzzles through multiple levels using time as your tool, manipulating it so that you can be in two places at once, or so you can make a bubble that is slowed in time.  If you have a 360, go and buy this game, it's well worth the $12.

It's unbelievably trippy for a video game, and I swear I've had moments where I get flashbacks from mushies and salvia. 


Life is just a flashback...

I may have gone a bit too far, I fear
Will I get out of it this time?
What was I thinking, taking this leap
I thought I knew where we would go
If only I knew, I had no idea.

And besides the flashbacks, it's a really good game, one of the best indie efforts of the year. It's a pity the certification process for the 360 took so much time and lead to the maker, Johnathan Blow, leaving out some other of his ideas.
