6w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today with The Witness on PlayStation 4 with a fresh PS4 video trailer below, as follows:
Shortly after I heard the phrase "PlayStation 4" for the very first time, I received a blog post, a batch of screenshots and a trailer for a game called The Witness, from legendary game designer, Jonathan Blow. This was my first exposure to the impending next generation of video games.
My excitement for The Witness may, admittedly, be amplified by my sentimental nature (it is the first PS4 game I ever laid eyes on, after all). After getting a chance to play it at an event last week, however, I'm relieved to know that my excitement is justified.
Jonathan Blow helped to bring mainstream attention to the indie game development movement with his modern classic, Braid, which famously twisted the minds of gamers worldwide into knots. As such, it should be expected that the challenges you'll face in The Witness will put your mental capacity to the test.
Thankfully, you won't jump straight into the mind-numbing brain-twisters - The Witness is designed in such a way that you'll be gradually introduced...
8w ago - Thekla Inc President Jonathan Blow shared some fresh PS4 details today of the very big world of The Witness on PlayStation 4.
To quote: It has been a while since we made a post on PlayStation.Blog, so I thought I would give an update about what we are working on.
The Witness takes place on an island full of puzzles. The island is an open world; you can go anywhere you want, and the game does not try to force you into a linear path.
For the past couple of years, we have had the island mostly built in a gameplay sense, and we were trying it out, moving things around, developing location concepts, tweaking puzzles. At this point, most of that stuff is figured out, so we are now going through all the areas of the island and detailing them.
What we learned in this process is that the island is in fact very big, for a place where you carefully visit every location during gameplay! Correspondingly, for a small independent team like ours, detailing this huge space is a lot of work!
