An eclectic, abstract and deeply emotive selection of modern Celtic music and medieval instrumentation.
You see a colourful 2D platform game and you immediately think of Mario. And when you think of Mario, you immediately think of happy, throwaway, plinky-plonky tunes.
Braid is an ‘art game’ that somehow sneaked into the mainstream. If you choose to scratch the surface, you’ll find that the game blends platforms and puzzles with a layered, mature, metaphorical story.
A Mario Lite soundtrack would have been wildly inappropriate and thankfully, Braid's deep, varied soundtrack - licensed from Californian indie label Magnatune - complements the game's emotional density right from the start.
Check this interview for more on the strategy behind the soundtrack.
