Braid

I have just discovered a great game. In fact, it goes beyond that of a mere game and into the realm of art. The game is called “Braid” and the best way I can describe it is that it’s a cross between Super Mario Brothers and Memento. Each level deals with the effects of time manipulation. Pressing shift reverses time so you cannot “die”. . . . but there are unintended side effects from this (you’ll know once you play the game). Other levels manipulate time by moving forward when you move to the right and moving backwards when you move to the left. It’s a trip.

Each puzzle in the game is genius, the music is exquisite and the background art is reminiscent of Van Gogh paintings. IE, its very impressionistic. This is an independent game so it’s not sold in stores, and it costs a mere $15. If you have a xbox 360 or a PC, you should check it out, it’s a fucking masterpiece
