"When it came time to select the best Mac apps of the year, we started with the list of the roughly 250 Mac programs we reviewed over the past 12 months. After much discussion, we whittled that list down to just 13 that we deemed worthy of our Editors' Choice Award" Macworld Editor's Choice Award

"Braid's artistic design is as imaginative as its puzzles. The whimsical world looks like a painting come to life." IGN

"One of the most interesting, satisfying, beautiful game experiences I've ever had." Destructoid

Beautifully polished and challenging


Loved this game. Probably in my top 5 of all time. The puzzles are just the right level of difficulty but doable - on par with Ocarina of Time. The time mechanic means I never felt frustrated. The music is amazing. I ended up staying up late just to play this. You can tell that a lot of thought went into this game. I've finished it though (since I came back to it over and over). Now the hunt for a replacement begins.

I didn't know what to expect from this game, all I can say is wow, the art style is beautiful, the puzzles frustrating (but easy when you realise the basics), fantastic story. It will test even the most patient of person, but the reward at the end is absolutly worth it.



My firend practically forced me to buy this, and I was not expecting much from first appearances but… WOW!

The Game is up there with my all time favourites. The music is super cool, I ended up loving the artwork, but it is the puzzles and story line that is the true genius.

If you enjoy a thinging game get it, it was a mind mess.
