The Witness heading to iOS
In all the bluster over the PS4 reveal last night, you might have missed a pretty interesting snippet of information – The Witness, created by Jonathan Blow the man behind seminal mind warping platformer Braid, is coming to iOS devices.
A puzzle game set in an open world, The Witness sees you interacting with a series of panels in order to manipulate the gorgeous looking island you find yourself on. The brain teasers on offer are non-linear, so if you get stuck on one you can wander over to the next and have a crack at that instead.
