The Witness
2016

Jonathan Blow is one of the most important figures of the revolution of indie gaming. His Braid (2008) won an Innovation in Game Design award at the Independent Games Festival and the story of its development was told in the insightful documentary Indie Game: The Movie (2012). Six years in development, The Witness debuted in early 2016 and revived the adventure puzzle genre forged in the 1990s by games such as Myst (1993). Its colorful postcard landscapes are rendered in a style distinguished by its emphasis on lighting, shape and color in contrast with an industry that is reliant on traditional texture maps. Without loading screens or cut scenes, the game is wholly manifest in one unbroken immersive experience. The panoply of environs tantalizes the wandering player to discover all of its secrets. Yet its familiar gaming environment tropes of jungle, desert and mountains are imbued with an alien quality by their lack of characters and fauna.
