Braid is getting an Anniversary Edition with redrawn art and a developer commentary

Classic time-manipulating indie adventure Braid is getting an anniversary edition, with re-drawn art, a developer commentary and more, and it’s heading to PC and consoles early next year.

“That potential involves longevity: many great works of painting, sculpture, and architecture have lasted for centuries and inspired generations of people.
