The Witness from Jonathan Blow’s Thekla Inc. development studio arrived on Steam and PS4 last week and offers some puzzling interactive moments as players are transported to a rich and colourful world. Whilst the game might not be to everyone’s tastes, the art direction is rather splendid and totally inviting to explore. The puzzles start out pretty simple, but as you delve deeper into the mysterious island they become far more challenging. Take a look at our The Witness gameplay video which you’ll have to agree does look rather beautiful in motion.
About The Witness:
You wake up, alone, on a strange island full of puzzles that will challenge and surprise you. This is the premise behind, The Witness which is a rather gorgeous looking puzzle adventure game.
You don’t remember who you are, and you don’t remember how you got here, but there’s one thing you can do: explore the island in hope of discovering clues, regaining your memory, and somehow finding your way home.
The Witness is a single-player game in an open world with dozens of locations to explore and over 500 puzzles. This game respects you as an intelligent player and it treats your time as precious. There’s no filler; each of those puzzles brings its own new idea into the mix. So, this is a game full of ideas.
