You wake up, alone, on a strange island full of puzzles that will challenge and surprise you. You don't remember who you are, and you don't remember how you got here, but there's one thing you can do: explore the island in hope of discovering clues, regaining your memory, and somehow finding your way home. The Witness is a single-player game in an open world with dozens of locations to explore and over 500 puzzles. This game respects you as an intelligent player and it treats your time as precious. There's no filler; each of those puzzles brings its own new idea into the mix. So, this is a game full of ideas.

Great, Unique Puzzle game

Do you like Puzzle games? Do you like "head scratchers"? Are you a person that is fond of Mystery? This is the game for you. The mysterious Island is filled with very unique puzzles and situations. There is no hand holding here(thankfully). It is just you and the Island. Get your mind working, and find a way out of this place to get home. Good luck.

Everything I hoped for and more.

Absolutely brilliant. Gives me the same sense of wonder and awe that I haven't had since the MYST games. There is nothing better than that "AHA" moment when discovering the WHY of a puzzle.

What a surprise!!!

This game is really clever... I play a lot of different types of games but I am a story driven player & although I have cancelled preorders just for not having a campaign. There is that exception to the rule--those days when you dont want to get into anything to envolved but you want to still play a game, but looking for something different but relaxing' but also challenging. Just something you can relax playing after a long day. This is not my normal type of game, but I have to say its really addicting. At least, for me it gives me a little break from the norm. Hope this helps if your on the fence about purchasing, because I was too. I am still playing, but i am glad its been added to my game library--GREAT GAME.

Brillantly Intelligent

From the clever and beautiful Technicolor art to the thought provoking audio vingettes and, of course, the remarkably creative puzzles, this game stands out like a lighthouse on the raging sea of video game sameness. Thank you for producing this unforgettable experience.

Great puzzle game!

I havent felt this way about a puzzle game since Portal. If your tired of shooters and like a challange give The Wittness a try!

様々な気づきの喜びに酔いつつ、のめりこむように最後までプレイしてしまいました。 ゲームを離れて現実世界に戻っても、丸いものを探す癖がついてしまい。。 哲学的な引用台詞の数々も含みがあり作品世界への想像力を刺激されました。 まだしばらくはこの余韻に浸り続けていたいと思います。
