Braid PC Hits Impulse on March 31

Jonathan Blow's critically acclaimed platformer Braid will hit the PC for the first time on March 31, according to distributor Stardock. However, in our comments, Stardock's Mike Crassweller points out that the game could arrive a bit earlier in March.

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.
