Jonathan Blow nearly finished with The Witness

Fans of beautiful games are rejoicing today, as we learn The Witness, the next game from Braid creator Jonathan Blow and a small team of independent developers, is almost finished.

A quick blog post from designer Orsi Spaynol (actually apologising for radio silence on the game’s website) has been enough to whip gamers into a frenzy.

“We are definitely in finish-the-game mode,” Spaynol says, “We are all working hard on the game, figuring out some of the last unknowns and polishing things up.”

It was a long time coming – The Witness was first announced for PC and iOS back in 2009. In 2013 we were told it was also headed to PS4, with a tentative “2014” release date. Spaynol’s post today suggests the studio should meet that (somewhat arbitrary) deadline, but we don’t know quite when the 3D puzzler will be finished. “When it’s ready,” seems like the obvious response.
