Podtoid 66: Braidtoid

0

eere

Last night, Tiff Chow, Jim Sterling, Aaron Linde and myself were joined by Jonathan Blow, creator of the single best game ever to hit Xbox Live Arcade.

It was pretty awesome. You can listen to the whole thing here.

Though we didn't technically discuss any spoilers, I still wouldn't recommend listening unless you've played through the game: certain things about the ending are hinted at, and most of the discussion probably won't be that interesting to you anyway if you haven't actually experienced the game yet.

Topics of discussion included:

-Tiff Chow: sings her most frightening jingle yet

-Was the ending set in stone from the beginning of production?

-Jon likes Space Giraffe, Aaron and Jim are rocked to their very cores

-Jon weighs in (sort of) on the whole "Braid is about the development of the nuke" theory

-Game prototypes

-The one thing in Braid Jon isn't 100% happy with

Considering almost every single reader question asked resulted in a really interesting response from Mr. Blow, it was even harder than usual to pick a best question. However, Jon personally picked out The GHost's question near the end of the episode, and gave an answer I did not expect. Just post your email in the comments, GHost, and I'll contact you about receiving your swag.
