About The Game

Explore a uniquely immersive and isolated world filled with hundreds of carefully-crafted puzzles and peel away the secrets to uncover an even greater mystery lurking at its heart.

Get lost among the wilds and the ruins of a stunningly colourful and yet oddly desolate island where even animal life dare not stir. Wander the breath-taking stillness of its forests and beaches, scale the crumbling facades of its abandoned buildings and discover hidden questions in everything.

Seek out the hundreds of digital panels scattered across the environment and solve their puzzles to gain access to undiscovered areas where yet more mysteries await you. Nothing is incidental – pay close attention to the world around you and you'll find all the clues you need to guide you.

From Jonathan Blow, creator of 2008's critically-acclaimed indie hit Braid, The Witness is a brooding work of passion, rich in atmosphere, challenge and intrigue.
