Game Title: Braid
Your name: Simon
Pretty or ugly: pretty
Description: The sound itself in Braid might not be the best around. In fact, some of the sounds are quite bad. But the way the sounds are used is what makes this sound design pretty. As you can see, or actually hear, in the footage above, the sound design is very simple. But in a game where the player is able to manipulate time, the sound get’s deformed in a lot of different ways. Like you see in the trailer you are able to let your shadow repeat actions you took. Yet as the shadow repeats them the sound is muffled. Sound plays backwards as you go back in time or is slowed down as time is slowed down.
