The more it went on the more I questioned reality.

Dec 16, 2013 @ 11:52pm

Is it sad that I legitimately enjoyed this?

The full reset was annoying, but eh... it's alright.

You realize, the full restart is the only thing that's keeping this game from the Seumas McNally.

This is actually pretty funny. Nothing special mechanically or thematically, but I definitely appreciate the humor!

10/10 What magicdweedo has managed seemed impossible: five years after the original, we yet again questioned what makes a game protagonist and what constitutes a gaming experience. Can games be art? We believe this work conclusively answers this question once and for all.

GAhh full reset, t-rex should be waypopint. Nice soundtrack! Should add time rewind, so you can experience bunny to face over and over again.

5/5 its ok.

Great parody, not-so-great game.

Random enemy drop with instant restart and weird audio track made this game surprising challenging and addictive.

Hahaha... wait wait, has Jonathan Blow played and rated it? Superb!

Better than Braid. I consider this to be canon in the Braid universe. Basically The Witness. Fixes all of the problems in the original and improves on every aspect. I once asked Mr. Blow what Braid 2 would be like and he described this exact game.

It's not first person = bad game ;)

I love your games, but I thought you were the one that told Johnathon Blow to not put guns in briad?

jimmypaulin says ...

Hahaha absolutely love this! Played Braid and this is a truly fitting sequel. And that song .... fantastic work! Sadly, too hard for me with cheap bunny drops nailing me out. After 20+ attempts I gave up :/

Simple but fun game. Well done. I included it in my Ludum Dare 28 compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look :)

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
