Jonathan Blow announced the open world puzzle game The Witness six years ago in 2009. Its been in development since then, even though the game’s engine went through extensive changes to suit new consoles and PC hardware.
The wait for the game is nearly over now. The Witness is coming to PlayStation 4 and PC on Jan. 26, 2016. The iPad version is still in the works but has no release date yet.
The trailer shows the game’s core of first-person exploration and puzzle solving. Jonathan Blow also gave some extra information on the game through the PlayStation Blog.
According to him, the game can last from 80 to 100 hours if players want to complete everything in the game. He also compared the game’s size to the 2014 build. Two years ago, The Witness consisted of 38,387 asset files. In 2016, the game has 57,068 files.
The game’s development has been long and complex, but it seems that its ambitious goals will be met soon. The Witness will be playable for the public at December’s PlayStation Experience event.
