I believe they also added an option for a reticle which can help some forms of that.
Great deal. I've read really good things about this game. I'm waiting for a price reduction on Google Play though as it's still £12.49 and I want to play it on the Shield.
Just noticed that if like me, you have Braid, you might be able to get the game for £6 as part of the "complete your collection" bundle price.

First price drop of this well reviewed puzzler. Debating whether to buy now, or hope it goes to half-price before or after Christmas. Here's Limmy playing it https://www.youtube.… Read more

I loved this game so very much. I bought it at release..didn't really care how much it cost.

I might revisit it actually, it's so beautiful, clever and captivating. Really fun to explore the world, and it makes you feel quite smart when you figure things out, (the sign of a wonderful puzzle game). Took my breath away quite a number of times. Braid was also quite a masterpiece.

Definitely buy this if you're into puzzle/creative/artistic games such as limbo, the swapper, inside, talos principle etc.
I loved the look of this game but in practice it bored the pants of me. It looks lovely and all that but all it boils down to is a load of trace the line puzzles that get more and more infuriating until you can't get any further.

I'm sure puzzle fans love the challenge but it just frustrated me.

That's exactly what it is. I absolutely hated it.

I've got Rock Band DLC in mind for the dregs, looks like the equivalent of £1 a song, BRL4. (90p actually seeing as I got BRL60 for £13.40)[/quote]

It is a mainstream game, that is why they are selling it on PSN.That is … It is a mainstream game, that is why they are selling it on PSN.That is also the game's main problem, they need to cater for every gamer. So the first few hours is overly simple as you have to get past the 'children's puzzles' and the puzzles become so abstract in the end that the logic just isn't there as they try to show how clever it is as a game. Pretentiousness is fine, as long as it goes hand in hand with good gameplay, a good story. But this game lacks any form of dialogue, or any variation of gameplay over the simple input box every single puzzle uses. Can you have fun with it? sure. It isn't a bad game.But for me it was, and still is. overpriced.


The guy worked on it for many years, and put all his Braid money in. It will take hours to complete - not overpriced at all.

The game starts simple as it teaches you mechanics that it builds upon. It is a slow ramp up, but without what you are being taught there would be no way to progress to the more complicated missions. There is logic there, you just can't do it.

And I don't think you know what mainstream means.

Do you want it to be an easy puzzle game? It is a game where a pen and paper become essential, and you get to feel like the smartest person in the world for 1 minute until you're stumped by the next one. It isn't a mainstream game, but it never pretended to be one.

Being 500 variations of the exact same puzzle. The first hundred are essentially a tutorial as they increase in difficulty slowly, and the last two hundred are so obtuse the devs brag only 1% of gamers will ever finish the game.Most people end up getting so frustrated they look up the solution on YouTube, and then you defeat the purpose of playing a puzzle game.For a tenner I'd say it would be a fun few hours, the map is nice to walk around, and it has some clever variations of the puzzle that use visual cues in the surroundings, but there is no story, no dialogue, not much at all really.Did not live up to the hype.

Boring game is boring. Its amazing how the hipsters love trash like this but hate on games like resident evil 6.
This game... it's just puzzle after puzzle. Once you finish the puzzles you are rewarded with more puzzles.

It's not for everyone.

I'll get it next year in a Humble Bundle.

And then never play it.
Had a refund and an email saying they aren't getting any codes in and to buy it off steam.
Getting a bit worried now, they don't even have the game on their website anymore....
I also got a reply saying they are out of stock and will be resupplied in a few days (no eta). They also offered a refund.

I'm going to wait a few days as well before refunding since it's such a low price.
If I don't have the code by tomorrow I'm just gonna buy it on steam!
