Age Rating: ESRB |

The Witness is the latest project from Braid developer, Jonathan Blow. It's an exploratory puzzle game set on a peaceful, verdant island with overtones of Myst. The nature of the puzzles remains a mystery, though videos have shown the player tracing lines across what appear to be circuit boards and Blow has mentioned that audio cues will be important. There's only one island, but it's packed with tasks. Blow listed the number of puzzles as "505 and counting" in a blog post earlier this year.

The Witness was revealed as a "limited-time exclusivity" title for the Playstation 4 at a February Sony event, but it won't stop it from coming to PC on launch day.
