Jonathan Blow is on hand to explain it all.
The PlayStation Blog has a new installment of Conversations with Creators up and this one features Thelka Inc. President and creator of the upcoming indie puzzler The Witness, namely Jonathan Blow, taking us through the mechanics of the game.
Blow sets about to explain what it’s like for an indie developer to develop for the PlayStation 4, that too on a timed exclusive title, and how The Witness differs from other games.
Announced with the PlayStation 4’s reveal this past February, The Witness takes us to a journey on an island made of puzzles which can be solved through manipulating various lights and switches. It was front and centre on Sony’s stage as part of the company’s new indie developer friendly policy.
Given how the Xbox One left indie devs for dead by prohibiting self publishing on Xbox Live, we can’t say the direction of Sony is a bad one right now. The Witness will release this year, and is also coming for PC and iOS.
