Jon Blow: The Witness might be largest puzzle game ever

PlayStation 4 launch title sports 25-40 hours of gameplay

Jonathan Blow's next project sounds absolutely massive. The Braid designer and his team are currently putting the finishing touches on The Witness, an open world puzzle game coming to PlayStation 4 that is reportedly somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 to 40 hours in duration.

That's a far cry from the eight hour campaign Blow envisioned when he embarked on this journey. In a recent update on the PlayStation Blog, the designer suggested the title might just be "the biggest and most-intricate world ever built for a puzzle game."

In addition to detailing The Witness' massive environments and tweaking its puzzles, the developer is presently focused on creating a "smooth and solid frame rate, making the graphics look as nice as possible, and ensuring that the streaming system loads things quickly."
