Stephen reflects on his original 9/10 review
There comes a point in any reviewer's writing career where they'll wish they'd scored something differently. Personally, there are a handful of games I've tackled for Push Square over the years which deserve higher or lower scores than I gave them. I won't be going through all of them here, although let's...
Myst the embargo
Republished on Wednesday 27th February 2019: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of March's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. 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...
Jonathan Blow's masterful puzzle game The Witness is set to hit store shelves with a physical edition, if a listing on Amazon Italy is to be believed. At the time of typing, the product page is pretty barebones, featuring placeholder box art and, well, not much else. However, backing this up to a degree are Blow's own comments about a...
Regardless of which TV you own
The Witness will be one of the many titles updated for free on the PlayStation 4 Pro – and contrary to common misconception, you'll get a better experience whichever television you own. Jonathon Blow explained on the game's official website that those with 4K televisions will be able to enjoy the game at 1440p or...
Breaking records and Blow-ing minds
We're currently seeing lines in our sleep, and it sounds like we're not the only ones. The Witness – which launched on the PlayStation 4 last week – is selling almost as fast as graph paper right now, with creator Jonathan Blow revealing that the title has already raked in $5 million of revenue after selling...
Seeing things differently
There are puzzle games, and then there is The Witness. As those of you that have spoken to me over the past few days will know, I wasn't convinced that Jonathan Blow's long-awaited magnum opus was going to be for me. I hated predecessor Braid with a passion, for starters – but all of this chatter about mind-numbing...
Hopefully this will all Blow over
Jonathon Blow's beautiful new project, The Witness, is finally here, and many PlayStation players - including many Push Square staffers - are pumped to play through it. However, some users have been complaining that the game's save system is subpar, claiming that the title doesn't automatically back-up saves and...
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,...
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...
80 hour indie game dated
If you can hear a kind of crackling noise, that's the sound of hell freezing over. The Witness was announced for the PlayStation 4 alongside the console itself, but almost three years later, it's finally ready for release. Braid developer Jonathan Blow has taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that the Myst-ical...
Strong speculation suggests that Sony wants to strap you into a new dimension of PlayStation 4 gameplay as early as next year – and Jonathan Blow’s upcoming indie title The Witness could be one of the first titles to take advantage of the unannounced virtual reality headset. Posting on the
Go your own way
Outside of Minecraft’s Markus ‘Notch’ Perrson, indie doesn’t get much more, er, mainstream than Braid creator Jonathan Blow. As such, it’s a testament to Sony’s overarching strategy at the present that the platform holder has the Thekla Inc president promoting The Witness on its impending next generation system. In this...
