Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS & GAMES -

Seven years in the mak­ing, the new game from the de­signer of Braid is an­other cere­bral puz­zle ti­tle. The Wit­ness gives play­ers an en­tire is­land to ex­plore, dot­ted with puz­zles to solve. Th­ese take the form of pan­els, on which an un­bro­ken line must be drawn within a grid to con­nect a start and end point. Their sim­ple form and sim­i­lar core me­chanic stand in con­trast to the rich­ness and di­ver­sity of the world it­self, which of­ten ac­tu­ally has a bear­ing on the puz­zles. Many, in fact, can only be solved through keen en­vi­ron­men­tal ob­ser­va­tion.
