Mario game where he walks right to left, witnessing the slain enemies left in his wake and reflecting on the horrors of war. Will his family still look at him the same when he returns? What will he find in the mirror?

@selfsame I wonder if when no one comes to visit Mario when he's being held at The Hague ahead of his trial for war crimes (Mario is a well documented war criminal), if he'll just assume the prison doesn't allow visitors?

or will he realize, and maybe even begin to understand why, that his family isn't coming because they can't stand to look at him anymore - they're too horrified by the images on the news of the thousands of civilians he's massacred, the enemy combatants he's tortured, etc.?

@selfsame Wait, wait, this is Braid, right? I know this one. Bowser was the hero all along, and Peach is actually an abstract metaphor for both toxic masculinity and the Manhattan Project.

@selfsame cant-a wash-a the blood of-a my hands *coin noise*
