  • Game of the Year 2016 #7 - The Witness

    Blown away

    If there was an annual award for 'Game Most Often Judged by Cover', The Witness would take it this year, hands down. Written off by many as "that game that's just about drawing lines", Jonathan Blow's long-delayed successor to Braid is, and has always been, about more than what's on the surface. Sure, your only real interaction with the...

    Jonathan Blow has, with help from his colleagues at Thekla Inc, finally released his follow-up to Braid, after spending the better half of a decade tinkering, adding, and perfecting.

  • Round Up Witness the Reviews for The Witness on PS4

    That headline sounded better in our head

    The Witness is here. After approximately eight years of development, a budget bigger than every cent earned by Braid, and a press campaign that included rocking up at the PlayStation 4's reveal event, Jonathan Blow has finally put the lid on his 80 hour puzzler. But is it any good? Well, we don't know,...

  • News The Witness Will Cost You a Pretty Penny on PS4

    But it will also last, like, 80 hours

    The Witness certainly falls under the bracket "indie game", but much like the upcoming No Man's Sky, creator Jonathan Blow's open world adventure is not your average pixel art side scroller. And subsequently, the Braid maker is commanding a premium fee for the puzzler: $39.99 in North America, and £29.99 in...
