...I really must apologise for breathing life into this dead thread, but I feel I need to share.
I finally had the pleasure of trying out a demo of Braid on a friend's computer, and realised what everyone else has already worked out long ago (game is awesome sauce).
Came home, set up Steam on my PC, paid for and downloaded Braid, thinking "Finally I get to play it!"
Launch the game - "Braid has encountered a problem and will close down.
" EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
Too late, I look at the system requirements, and then look at what's hiding inside my Frankenputer... Oh dear. Not enough. Looks like I shoulda tried the demo out first. Time to upgrade, I guess!
EDIT: reviving the thread once again... I managed to play this game a little further at ACMI
last month. I tried to get one of the secret stars, but ran out of time... and no, I'm not talking about the one that takes two hours to get
. Wait, why am I spoilering something that just about everyone knows by now?
