Braid Now Only $5
Braid, that crazy time-traveling platformer from Jonathan Blow, is now a bit cheaper. Impulse is selling the PC version for $5 instead of the usual $10.
Initially released for Xbox Live Arcade in August 2008, Braid is a 2D side-scroller in which you control a well-dressed man named Tim. Each segment of the game has a different time-based mechanic that you have to master. In one world, moving to the left will rewind time while moving to the right will make time progress forward. In another world, you'll get a ring that causes surrounding objects to slow down.
I've been beating the drum long and hard for this game since it first hit XBLA so I'm not going to rehash my opinions here, for fear of boring regular readers. If you're unfamiliar with the game, you can read more about it in my review.
