Everyone (well, most people) that missed out on Braid due to its initial release on the Xbox 360 can now rejoice, because the PC version has just been released! As you’d expect, it’s a digital download from the usual places, including Greenhouse, Impulse, and Steam, priced at $US15. Braid is a wonderfully clever, beautiful, and moving game, and — dare I say it — an important game, since it pushes gameplay and storytelling in ways that only a small, independent title can. For those reasons and more, Braid was, in my opinion, 2008’s finest game.
It’s also worth mentioning that the PC version works fine under Wine on Linux — it didn’t go full-screen for me, but apart from that it seemed flawless. There’s a Mac port on the way, too.
