I bought Braid in the Steam sale this Christmas
Yeah me too! Can't really beat that deal.
The story seemed pretty interesting, bit flowery in it's construction, but after I beat it and did the epilogue.. I kept going back to the epilogue, and mulling it over. Then I thought of something that gave me shivers and tied everything together, and then started obsessing over interpretations.
The whole game has been like some sort of slow acting drug for me, excited to take it then disappointed in the immediate effect, then it starts when I don't expect it...
It's completely taken over my system at this point.
