The Witness: A Beautiful Indie Game With an Intriguing Premise [TheGameHeadz]

Thanks to services like Steam, indie games have been making a huge comeback in recent years. Indie hits like Bastion and Amnesia: The Dark Descent are now household names for gamers. E3 this year saw a fair share of indie game previews, and among them was The Witness. This lovely puzzle game takes place on an island that the player can explore at their own pace.

I really don't care how great this game is, I will not be giving that idiot Blow one penny.

You mad because he's not putting his game on Xbox One first? I know you like Xbox One from all your comments. You shouldn't call him an idiot for that reason. His game looks great IMO.

I doubt it not being on the X1 first is the problem. It's the same principal people won't buy the X1. I agree with Loki86...with the way this guy is, this game had better be the second coming.

In case you didn't know...he doesn't care for either Sony or Microsoft...Sony just happens to be the lesser of two evils for him.

I am unbiased and actually getting just the PS4 at launch, if you want to see what kind of a hole this guy is watch the Indie Game Movie. The guy is a complete prick.

Wow. Can someone confirm the price on this:

Indie or not I refuse to buy a game which will have zero replay-ability until I've managed to forget every puzzle for that price.

Blow is really punching above his weight if thats how much he expects people to pay for it.

@pekoli, You can try tweeting Jonathan Blow and asking him. I might consider asking him myself. I was not under the impression that this was a full disc release, and that it was more of a discount release. I would have guessed $20.00 American.

For the record, I did tweet Jonthan Blow, and he did answer:

I asked "@Jonathan_Blow , I just wanted to ask if you were aware that Amazon UK has The Witness listed as 55 pounds, and if that was what you expect?"

His response: "They are just making up prices like they always do."

Thank you very much. I was flicking through amazon and just couldn't believe it :)

Jonathan Blow might not always say things that make the masses happy, but Braid is my all time favorite indie game, and it was so good, I would buy whatever his next game is on faith alone. I consider it my biggest must buy (probably timed) exclusive for the PS4.

The "music" in the witness ps4 trailer made me not want to buy the game, I do think the island colors are pretty though. I don't care if the maker is an ahole that just means I'll wait for reviews before buying it. I like puzzle games sometimes but I'm not sure how much I'd pay for a game like this considering how many hours of replayability are in other games like watch dogs, bf4, the division, the crew, etc.

really? why?

the music in the trailer is beautiful. i hope it's included somehow in the game or at least gives an idea of what to expect from the soundtrack.
