As some of you know I started to play The Witness last week which is a 3D puzzle game made by Jonathan Blow (same guy that made Braid a couple of years ago). I had no idea what to expect when I started to play it because I hadn’t read anything about it. The only thing I saw about the game before we started to play it was a picture of a puzzle and thought that the game could be fun for me and Bummi to play and we sure did! We got hooked straight away and enjoyed it a lot!
The way that they have designed the game is that you learn how to play by solving puzzles without them really giving you any instructions. The first puzzles are very easy but just shows you the mechanics and what the goal is and then it gets harder and harder. You can walk freely around in the world so if you get stuck somewhere or don’t think you know the rules for the puzzle yet you can just go somewhere else! The picture of the puzzle is one of the first puzzles where you just learn that the goal is to get from the start (lower-left corner) to the end (top-right corner).
Me and Bummi are having a friend from Stockholm over for the weekend so we are gonna go to pick her up soon at the train station. Gonna play some board games later today, our latest addition to the collection and our current favorite one is called Mysterium!
Looking forward to our first game in the captains draft tournament next Monday. It’s always fun to get to play some new lineups that you never saw before! 🙂
