So any IndieGAF thoughts on The Witness?
Personally, I'm loving it. There's something really compelling about its dense open world, there's always something interesting to see over the next hill. The puzzles are simple in execution but layered with complexities. It's less like solving puzzles and more like learning some odd language. A language that once you can translate, allows you to activate machines and unlock doors and so on. And of course the game is absolutely gorgeous.
Yeah, great game. I think it plays better on mobile. The connection between steps and physically tapping makes the cautious movement and stomps that much more tense.
I was fairly skeptical before I started playing, but the game is incredible. The full open world is ridiculously satisfying to explore, and the landscapes are just beautiful. I've played it for 12 hours and have unfortunately solved nearly two thirds of the puzzles, but I know that the hardest parts are yet to come.
Overall I recommend it, even given its price. It's worth it.
