Arthouse Games
by raiganTuesday, February 6, 2007 [11:34 am]

Braid is definitely the most fun I've had playing a platformer since SMW originally came out, and it's _much_ more intellectually stimulating/puzzle-y.

It's like an adventure/puzzle game, only instead of boolean "key-in-inventory/locked-door" puzzles, the puzzle-solving abilities you have at your disposal are your continuous movement through 2D space and 1D time. This sounds limited but in fact it's often more than your brain can handle. The experimentation and mind-bending-ness of it all is just amazing.

The only downside is that now every other platformer, including the one i'm working on, is utter crap in comparison!
