The Witness is now available on the PS4, downloadable from the PlayStation store, developer Jonathan Blow has said on a PlayStation Blog post today. It took Blow seven years to develop but now that it is finally here, we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
If you haven’t heard of The Witness before, we have your back! The Witness is a beautiful looking open world puzzle adventure game. As a player, you’ll wander around an island solving this puzzles in the way of a maze. The game is said to contain more than 650 puzzles, but if that number scares you, don’t worry, you won’t need to solve all of them to get to wrap up the game. In fact, there’s one particular puzzle Blow believes not even 1% of all players will be able to solve.
The reviews of The Witness that are coming out are very positive, but to those who are already interested in the game, Jonathan encourages “you to stay away from reviews, because some parts of the game are very spoilable”. If you haven’t heard of the game, check them anyway and then see if the game is worth it or not.
The Witness does look like a gorgeous, immersing and intriguing experience. Developer Jonathan Blow took the design very seriously and that’s one of the strongest points in favor of the game. The game is yet to be available on Asia PSN and there’s no word on a disk release.
