Dear friend, please play The Witness

So, some of you may have heard me talk about this game, The Witness, over the past several years. I have not finished playing it, but I have played enough to say with certainty that it is both better than even I expected (and I considered my expectations unreasonable) and it is the single best puzzle game ever designed. It is a triumph, and as a designer myself I am so far behind I don’t know that I could ever reach it.

In a word, it is astounding. If you enjoy puzzle games, pick it up on PC or PS4. Don’t read any more about it. Don’t watch videos about it. If you get stuck (and you will¬†get stuck) don’t look up a solution online. Just sit down, get comfortable, play it alone, and prepare yourself for a revelation.

Pick it up on Steam here.

Or get it DRM-free (and support charity in the process) here!
