Braid

Braid

Braid is a critically acclaimed 2D platform and puzzle video game developed by independent software developer Jonathan Blow.

It is a platform game in painterly style where you manipulate the flow of time to solve puzzles. Every puzzle in Braid is unique; there is no filler. The puzzles give your mind a workout. It requires more attention, cunning and brainpower than Golden Axe and Sonic 2 put together.

Braid treats your time and attention as precious, and it does everything it can to give you a mind-expanding experience.

All gameplay is based on time manipulation. Journey into worlds where time behaves strangely; observe, learn from, and then master these worlds.
