On Xbox.com, Jonathan Blow offered some advice for new players. "This is a game containing a lot of surprises. I recommend going into it without spoilers. If you get stuck, or something seems difficult, you can turn around and go somewhere else, and come back to the hard problem later," said Blow. "Elsewhere on the island you might find clues to the thing you’re stuck on, and you may have a very enjoyable experience when you make the right connections. On the other hand, if you look for answers in online videos and online forums, you’re likely to have an empty experience — you’ll know the answer, but you will have skipped over the good part of the experience. The most enjoyable part of this game is what happens in your mind when connections come together."

'The Witness' is out now on PlayStation 4 and PC. It releases on Xbox One September 13th.
