Jonathan Blow has shared new details on his upcoming PS4 exclusive ‘The Witness’. In a post on the official PlayStation Blog, Blow talked about the progress being made on the development of his latest game and confirmed that the basic design of the game is almost finished. He also talked about the resolution and frame rate of the PS4 version of the game, confirming that it will be indeed running at 1080p and 60 frames per second.
The Witness is a brand new puzzle game from Jonathan Blow, the creator and developer of the extremely popular, time-based, puzzle platformer Braid. During the PlayStation 4’s reveal last February, Blow appeared on stage to reveal that he is going to release his next game exclusively on the PlayStation 4. The game is supposedly using the touch pad in an interactive way to solve puzzles in the game. It sports a beautiful visual style that bodes well with the overall aesthetics of the game.
