The Witness is a 3D puzzle video game published and developed by Thekla. The game was released for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC back in January 2016 and is inspired by Myst, the game that pioneered the exploration of an open world island filled with both man-made and natural structures.
In the game, you progress by solving puzzles which are based on interactions with mazes that are either hidden within the environment or presented on panels around the island. The nice thing about this game is that the player will have to determine the rules of each puzzle from audio recordings scattered and visual clues that are scattered around the island.
If you are a gamer who plays games on Xbox One, then we have some good news for you: The Witness is also making its way to the console on September 2016. It is good to know this game will also be released for iOS sometime later in 2016, but it’s not sure yet when this will happen.
As expected, the game also comes with lots of surprises, which is the reason why we suggest you not watch any gameplay videos or Twitch streams about it. In other words, stay away from spoilers if you want to have an awesome experience while playing this game. However, if you struggle with a puzzle in the game, you can always try another puzzle and get back to the previous one later.
It is good to know that Thekla spent about seven years arranging every detail of the island for you to explore. In other words, we assure you that most of the times, you will be surprised about what this game comes with.
