"Time manipulation in videogames is nothing new. From Chrono Trigger to Majora’s Mask to Braid, developers have been obsessed with unlocking the possibilities of time in gameplay. Still, using time travel in an endless runner is something that hasn’t been explored. On its face it seems counter-intuitive. After all, the whole conceit of endless runners is that they are one-directional—always forward, never back. In spite of this, Time Surfer makes a good case for why this idea might be just what the doctor ordered to rejuvenate the genre. I think we all know what Doctor I’m talking about."
