Independent developer Jonathan Blow said that a demo of Valve’s technology convinced him to add virtual reality support to his upcoming first-person puzzle game The Witness.
The Witness is a puzzle adventure game, experienced in the first-person view. The player, as an unnamed character, finds himself on an island with numerous structures and natural formations. The island is divided into ten sections arranged around a mountain that represents the ultimate goal for the player. Within each section, the player will encounter numerous puzzles, and once the player has completed all puzzles in a section, he will gain access the puzzles within the mountain and complete the game.
The puzzles within each section are based on a similar theme, with early puzzles in the sections designed to help the player identify the theme and understand how to solve the later puzzles.
