Humble Bundle Games: Braid

I just tried out my second game from the Humble Bundle 2. This one is called Braid. It is a 2D puzzle platform jump and run with a little twist. In the first world that I just started, you can let time run backwards, by hitting the shift key. Other than that, you only have the arrow keys for moving around your character and the space bar for jumping. The graphics are wonderful, in style akin to a aquarel or water colour painting. The music is some violins playing a melancholic soundtrack. The worlds seem to be designed with a lot of love, and it’s nice to see a jump and run game with more puzzles than fast action scenes. It’s somewhat of a change. Here’s a nice screenshot of one of the first levels:
