The Witness Review
In both structure and detail, The Witness is an original, difficult, and ultimately rewarding puzzle game.
i don’t think the witness is very good
Since its release, I always seemed to have a sort of irrational dislike of The Witness. This week, I decided to finally put that into words.

Review: The Witness
In which I risk looking like an asshole for not liking a thing everybody likes.
The Witness is on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/210970/
But you can’t play it if you’re epileptic, colorblind or tone-deaf!
So is Braid: http://store.steampowered.com/app/26800/
And Antichamber (in case you missed it earlier): http://store.steampowered.com/app/219890/
