At last! The Witness releasing in January 2016


The island of Jonathan Blow

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 final January 26, 2016 release on PlayStation 4 and PC.

Blow maintains that his puzzle title is among the biggest ever created. “[I]f you are a completionist who wants to wring every last drop out of the game,” he said, “you might expect to play for 80 hours, or possibly 100.” But is there substance to back it up? From what I’ve seen and heard: yes.

It’s astonishing that a game of this scope paired with this subject matter can even exist today.
