Hello, and welcome to another episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone. This week, we’re talking about Braid and Octopath Traveler, which ends up being Madelyn complaining a lot about one and Emma complaining a lot about the other. We’re very critical people.
As usual, you can listen to our podcast basically anywhere you want. Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or Spotify (or head over to our episodes page for even more options). Or just listen below!
Braid is a 2008 indie puzzle-platformer made entirely by Jonathan Blow (with the only exception being the art by David Hellman). In the game, you play as Tim, a businessman trying to save a princess from being captured by a “monster.” The game makes use of different time-based mechanics across its levels, and that’s not the only “twist” to the game.
Octopath Traveler is a JRPG from Acquire and Square Enix, where you lead eight different adventurers across their eight different story paths in a world that blends 2D sprite work with 3D backgrounds. We’ve talked about it a lot on the podcast before. Finally, we can get Emma’s definitive thoughts on the game, after her blog post and her video. Finally, she can just shut up about Octopath Traveler already.
