Jonathan Blow’s been careful not to give too much away about The Witness , but given that he’s at the helm of developer Thekla, we’re on board. What we do know is that you will be given free reign to explore a beautiful island, solving puzzles as you do so. Blow’s talked about how the puzzles in the game are intended to nurture a spark of realisation in your mind and hinted that the puzzles might tell the player more than they realise sounds interesting. Thekla's Orsi Spanyol recently revealed that the team is in “finish-the-game mode” so we reckon we’ll get to play it this year.
