1UP FM Braid Afterthoughts

September 1st, 2008

Today’s 1UP FM podcast is an extended conversation between Nick Suttner and Shawn Elliott of 1UP, Rod Humble of The Sims and The Marriage, and Jonathan Blow and me of Braid. It’s quite long and I haven’t listened to the whole thing yet, but what I did review seemed pretty good!

The conversation covers Braid’s story (and various efforts to make sense of it), then broadens to consider how games in general convey meaning. (If you’re not familiar with Rod’s independent projects, I suggest you check them out, especially The Marriage.)

UPDATE: An outline with time signatures has been written by Ben Zeigler at his blog, Double Buffered. It’s a nice reference. At the end, Ben falls asleep.
