The Art of the Witness

The Witness is a frustrating game. Not just because the puzzles are hard, but because the game demands so much of your time (I’ve spent hours on individual puzzles) and because the world hints at so much but appears to deliver (from where I’m standing, at least) so little apart from more puzzles for you to bash your head against. So it’s nice to step back and just appreciate the beauty of the world they created.
