GamePlanet: "'I’m kind of surprised Sony has it in the theatre here,' says Blow of his latest game. 'There’s no guns.' One could read this comment as yet another dig from the notorious dev towards the skew of the mainstream industry. But here it sounds more like an acknowledgement that The Witness is bereft of the frantic action typical of the attention-stealing games of E3. Rather, it’s an adventure/puzzle game that thrives on delivering a sense of ongoing achievement. 'This game is for people who are interested in that feeling of fascination and discovery.'"
