Platform: XBLA, PSN, Windows, Mac OS X, Linux

In the critically acclaimed indie game, Braid, you play as Tim, a man searching for a princess that was snatched by a horrible and evil monster. In the final level, everything but Tim moves in reverse, which shows the princess escaping from a knight.

As you’re locked out of the house, time progresses forwarded, showing your actions in reverse and what you eventually see is the princess was running from you, setting traps you were able to evade until she’s rescued. You’re the monster she was running from the entire time. Poor Tim.
