Author’s take: Smaller indie studios have been surprising me for years and I’m always up to discover a new world with hidden secrets. Full disclosure I played The Witness for an hour and gave up. So, if the puzzles in this game are anything like that I will most likely be a fan from afar and let the more capable tell me about it later.
