Braid, the indie puzzle-platformer from Jonathan Blow is getting a huge overhaul with a new Anniversary Edition that’s due out sometime in 2021. It’s something of a classic and became quite a big hit, it was also one of the early bigger indie titles to come to Linux.
Sounds like it’s going to be a massive improvement, which includes David Hellman returning to do the repainting. Extra animations are in, upgraded sound effects and music and so on. They explained the point was to upgrade it and not do a “Star Wars Special Edition” to change how some things were done to the story. There’s even going to be a toggle to switch between old and new which is always fun to play with in a game. Developer commentary is also going to be in, with their plan to have it as the “craziest, most-in-depth commentary ever put in a video game“.

The great news is that it’s confirmed to be coming to Linux too. As the official website notes, which was written by Blow, their plan is to simultaneously ship across “PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, Windows, Mac, and Linux”.
No exact release date given, other than sometime in Q1 2021.
