The Witness

Puzzles are something nearly everyone can get behind. Some are good at them, some are not so good at them, but completing a puzzle has this universal thrill to it, and the 2016 release The Witness taps into that by creating an entire island that is effectively a single puzzle for the player to solve. From the mind of Jonathan Blow, The Witness is an open world puzzle game reminiscent of Myst. The central game mechanic is simple in and of itself: draw the correct solution to a maze.
