jonathan-blowJonathan Blow, the creator of the amazing Braid game has decided to tease his upcoming project, a game titled The Witness and described as an “exploration-puzzle game on an uninhabited island”. We don’t know if it’s going to be a platformer, just like Braid, but everybody is expecting for some big innovations from Jonathan Blow, so he must be under a lot of pressure.

However, he seems to be able to deal with it, since the teaser for The Witness is indeed nice. Here’s what it reads: “Something amorphous and consummate existed before Heaven and Earth. Solitude! Vast! Standing alone, unaltering. Going everywhere, yet unthreatened. It can be considered the Mother of the World. I don’t know its name, so I designate it, ‘Tao’. Compelled to consider it, name it The Great”.

Pretty interesting, right? In more “down to earth” terms, Jonathan Blow said about The Witness that it is “very visual, and once we have developed those visuals to the point where they are representative, I’ll start posting them there.” There is the game’s official website which can be visited by following the link. However, at the moment of writing, there is nothing on the website (except for the aforementioned teaser), and it might be some time until we get something since The Witness is scheduled to be released in late 2011…
