Stardock today opened up preorders for the title on its digital distribution network Impulse. Braid PC will cost $19.95 on the service, a $5 premium over the Xbox Live Arcade version that arrived last year. Past comments by Blow indicated that the PC port of the time-bending title would show up on multiple distribution platforms, including Valve's Steam.
"They are interested in putting the game up," said Blow of Valve in a recent Gamasutra interview. "So it's just a matter of me having a PC version ready that I feel is good to go with."
I liked it, but it was a bit overpriced even on XBLA.
It just don't see it selling that well at $20.
The game offers no worthwhile incentives really for most players to come back to it after the first (short) play through. I don't get the price on this one at all.
I own it on XBLA.
