The Witness releasing January 2016
The next game from the creators of Braid
Jonathan Blow has announced that his next game, The Witness, will be released on January 26, 2016.
"There’s a lot here. When we started making this game, I figured it would have between 8 and 12 hours of playtime. As it happens, the game we’ve finally built is around 10 times as big as that: if you are a completionist who wants to wring every last drop out of the game, you might expect to play for 80 hours, or possibly 100. For people who don’t want to go quite that far, the game’s still got plenty for you," says Jonathan.
In The Witness, players explore a mysterious island and solve puzzles. Thematically, it’s a game about epiphany, that leap your mind makes when you instantly go from confusion to understanding. The game is said to take place in an open world.
The Witness will be available for PC and PlayStation 4.
