The Witness
/ pc / ps4 / Xbox One

     


Somehow DJ Khaled fits perfectly in The Witness


You smart. You very smart. We the best.
Feb 08
 
I've been playing through Jonathan Blow and gang's The Witness of which I have very mixed feelings -- unlike Brett who gave the game a perfect score in his review -- but that hasn't stopped me from falling in love ...




What's so great about Undertale and The Witness?


It's a secret!
Feb 07
 
In the last few months, two games were released that I feel might be among my favorite games of all time, Undertale and The Witness. But what exactly makes them two of the greatest gaming experiences I've had in recent m...




The Witness has already brought in $5 million


Xbox, mobile ports under consideration
Feb 02
 
Expanding on his initial hints about how The Witness is selling, designer Jonathan Blow has shared more detailed numbers. On PC and PS4, the mind-melting puzzle game "has totalled over $5 million USD gross revenue in the...




Holy shit, this fan-made Witness puzzle is totally solvable


I think...
Feb 01
 
Once The Witness has its hooks in you, it really has its hooks in you. Chances are, there's no turning back. There is only playing, dreaming, and day-dreaming. Everything is a Witness puzzle waiting to happen, ...




The Witness is already almost outselling Braid's entire first year


I hope Blow can afford piss breaks now
Jan 31
 
After being in development since what feels like the dawn of humanity, Jonathan Blow’s The Witness is doing pretty dang well for itself. Not only did it get almost universal critical praise (nabbing a 10/10 in Destructo...




Jonathan Blow says The Witness is very popular among pirates


Popularity isn't always a good thing
Jan 29
 
The Witness is very popular this week, but popularity and revenue don't always correlate directly. There's a whole subset of people out there who prefer to get their games through nefarious, illegal means and The Witness...




The Witness puzzle that's vexing everyone [Update]


Again, puzzled
Jan 28
 
[Update: Jonathan Blow answered our inquiry. Here's what he had to say, edited slightly to omit anything that could be the most minor of spoilers: "Yes, I pretty much figured that one to be one of the hardest individual ...




The Witness has no need for impatient players, and that's awesome


Blow won't hold your hand
Jan 27
 
I've been playing The Witness for the past day or so. Although I don't like it as much as Brett (yet, at least) I think it's pretty damn great, and if you even remotely like puzzle games you should get it -- it's like a modern day Myst. In this era of instant gratification I suspect a lot of people are going to be turned off by it, but for me, it couldn't have come at a better time.




All the crazy Beautiful Mind shit I did to beat The Witness


Puzzled
Jan 26
 
I've put a lot of time into The Witness lately. Like, a lot a lot. Effort too. This might be the most draining review experience of my career. It's rewarding though, and that makes it less burdensome even if it...




Review: The Witness


Come see
Jan 25
 
I am worthless. I am garbage. I am a dolt. I am brilliant. I am special. I am a genius. Those are the two extremes of self-value that The Witness constantly inflicts. It's a continuous loop of not getting it until you totally get it. Then, you don't get it again.




Jonathan Blow's pee in a bottle


'Developer stuff' is a good tag here
Jan 21
 
Jonathan Blow, developer of soon-to-be-released The Witness, has resorted to peeing in a bottle. Or, he insinuates that at least. This is a bottle with what looks to be a good amount of urine in it, along with the caption "He...




The Witness is actually going to cost $40


I'll pay it
Jan 19
 
The Witness is said to take somewhere in the neighborhood of 70 hours to fully complete. Despite knowing that, I somehow had it in my head that it would probably be around $20 or so. That's a fairly common price point among ...




The Witness is coming to Xbox One too, according to the ESRB


Due next week on PC and PS4
Jan 18
 
Development for The Witness began back in 2008, and now, we're finally going to see the game in action next week when it launches on PC and PS4. But wait! According to the ESRB, it's coming out on Xbox One as well at some poi...




The Witness 'might' get a physical release


Still putting on finishing touches
Dec 23
 
Although The Witness is set to release next month, Jonathan Blow is still putting on the finishing touches as we speak. Voiceover is apparently done outside of some minor work in early January, at which point the team w...




A tranquil moment with The Witness


The so-called 'long screenshot' returns
Nov 19
 
We're not far from the January 26, 2016 release of The Witness (PC, PS4), but going off this latest blog post from designer Jonathan Blow, there's plenty of work left to be done on the puzzling adventure. The first test readi...




Almost none of you could 100% The Witness according to Jonathan Blow


Some really darn tough puzzles
Sep 23
 
Do you like your puzzle games tough? Well, Jonathan Blow has laid down the gauntlet and challenged you. According to an interview with the EU Playstation Blog, Blow has included a puzzle in The Witness which is so fiendishly ...




At last! The Witness releasing in January 2016


The island of Jonathan Blow
Sep 17
 
We've been patiently awaiting Braid designer Jonathan Blow's next game for years, and it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that we'll have to continue being patient a while longer. The Witness has locked in a seemingly fin...




Set aside 70 hours to fully complete The Witness


Or just critical path it
Jun 11
 
The largest puzzle game ever? It feels like every time we hear an estimate for The Witness' length, the number grows. A lot. Designer Jonathan Blow expects "the average time of 100%ing the game to be over 70 hours." That woul...




The Witness is coming 'not that late in 2015, hopefully' and looks great


Got to get you into my life
Dec 08
 
Playing a puzzle game in front of a developer is a nerve-racking experience, let me tell you. At some point, your brain will betray you. You'll get stuck. And since the game is still being made, the developer won't want to p...




Development on The Witness is coming along nicely


Slow and steady
May 14
 
There's no news on when The Witness is releasing. Designer Jonathan Blow is standing by his "when it's done" policy, which will serve us well when we finally have this exploration-puzzle game at long last. But until then, mo...




I don't think I'll mind getting lost in The Witness


Mmm this looks good
Feb 21
 
I'm looking out my window as I type this and what I see is a mostly overcast sky and lots of drab grays and blues. It's sleepy. What I'd rather be looking at are these warm, teeming-with-life screenshots from Jonathan Blow's ...




The Witness might receive Oculus Rift support


Jonathan Blow's being a tease
Dec 02
 
The Witness, Jonathan Blow's follow-up to the universally well-received Braid, is definitely a highly anticipated game. It's been in the works for quite some time, and the hype surrounding it has sort of just kept building. I...




Jon Blow: The Witness might be largest puzzle game ever


PlayStation 4 launch title sports 25-40 hours of gameplay
Oct 16
 
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 somewher...




Blow's enigmatic The Witness is the highlight of the PS4


Bear witness
Jun 14
 
Braid creator Jonathan Blow's The Witness is probably my most anticipated PS4 game -- almost definitely among games that are coming to the system this year. It, in its own way, stole the show at Sony's PlayStation 4 announcem...




The Witness looks lovely in this latest PS4 footage


'The field of what's possible in games is so large'
May 23
 
While The Witness might seem like quite the departure from Braid, at least at first glance, there are similarities to be found -- particularly with the way the games' overall themes are presented. "When you go in, if you jus...




Jon Blow praises the power of the PlayStation 4


The Witness developer is also impressed by the Share feature
Mar 11
 
I think many eyebrows were raised when Braid developer Jonathan Blow came on stage at the Sony Press conference last month and announced his upcoming title, The Witness, would be a "timed exclusive" for the PlayStation 4. Spe...




Blow explains why The Witness is a timed PS4 exclusive


It might not be what you think
Feb 22
 
Designer Jonathan Blow talking about The Witness was not something I expected to see during the PlayStation 4 reveal event this week; it was one of the more pleasant surprises of the evening. While the exploration-puzzle game...




GDC: Witnessing Jonathan Blow's The Witness


Mar 08
 
During the 2012 Game Developers Conference, I had a chance to sit down with Jonathan Blow to talk about his new adventure/puzzle game The Witness. I would like to stress that what I played was a very early version, without mo...
