Braid beat Puzzle Quest: Galactrix. (And Winterbottom. Sorry Matt… but I think it’s pretty damn sweet that a student game is in this list to begin with. That’s got to look good on the resume.)
Thanks to Bruce Morrison for bringing this to my attention.
Update: Braid also won Best Xbox Live Arcade Game, beating out all the other games in the Summer of Arcade promotion!
Also, I am making an About Braid page to answer peoples questions, provide some background to the game and links to reviews. It is not nicely-formatted yet, and will eventually have more information, but anyone who wants a sneak peek at it can look here.
