You wake up, alone, on a strange island full of puzzles that will challenge and surprise you. You dont remember who you are, and you dont remember how you got here, but theres one thing you can do: explore the island in hope of discovering clues, regaining your memory, and somehow finding your way home. The Witness is a single-player game in an open world with dozens of locations to explore and over 500 puzzles. This game respects you as an intelligent player and it treats your time as precious. Theres no filler; each of those puzzles brings its own new idea into the mix. So, this is a game full of ideas.
For me, not only one of the best games of 2016, but one of the category 'Where can I have my memory erased to enjoy it again?''
The Witness takes on meditative features here and there and the cleverly laid out island, the puzzles and the thousand beautiful corners merge into a single fat wow experience. If you appreciate aha-moments, like to stomp around in nature, like puzzles and focus on 'simple' mechanics, he will have a lot of fun with The Witness for many hours.
