INT. SOME CABIN.
An average guy sits near his laptop, his eyes scanning the screen obsessively. A voiceover from the same guy ensues.
The guy works his way around a trap, only to fail and have a 70-kilo metallic chain with sharp blades all around it falling on him. Miraculously, the time rewinds and he's able to solve the puzzle correctly.
A ring lies in the middle of a meadow. The guy looks at it with a sense of wonder and lust.
However, time begins to slow down the closer he gets to the ring, making it impossible for him to reach it.
Guy stumbles onto a book, which says he was a terrible boyfriend who often considered violence when dealing with his girlfriend.
The scene shifts to him doing scientist stuff, like measuring and calculating and being cruel to animals.
Once again, the guy screws up a puzzle, causing him to fall down towards the spike-encrusted pit. And once again, the time rewinds, saving his ass.
The guy sees a knight carrying his princess away.
But the princess breaks away from his grasp.
The guy leads his princess away, dismantling every trap in the way, running as fast as he can until he finds her home, but just as she gets inside, the time stands still, and the guy can't move.
The princess now runs out of the house, with the guy chasing after her. She resets the very traps he had dismantled, forcing him to work his way around them again. Just as he finds the princess again, he sees the knight, screaming "Get over here!". She rushes into the knight's arms-
-and they escape from the guy.
The guy is now inside a burning city. The words "Braid" seem to be etched into the sky, written in flames. Also, there's a constellation outside of his cabin for some reason.
