Microsoft today announced that Braid will be released via Xbox LIVE Arcade this Wednesday, August 6, 2008 at 9 a.m. GMT (2:00 a.m. PDT). From independent developer Jonathan Blow, Braid is an artful puzzle-platformer where challenging, yet accessible puzzles are solved by manipulating time. Time behaves differently in each world, and every puzzle shows you something different about the world. The time behaviors include rewinding, independent time streams, time that is tied to space, parallel realities, time dilation, and perhaps more. Developed by Number None, Braid will be available for 1200 Microsoft Points worldwide.
