Picked it up on PS4 but never seem to have the time to play. But, mobile gaming allows me a lot more freedom so I will more than likely grab it for my phone.

I like the Witness. If you aren't really into puzzle games, I'd probably avoid it. It requires a certain amount of persistence. It's one of those games that some will love and others just won't get.

I am waiting for this game since it's first was anounced, I loved Braid, played it on my 360 when I still was in my console days ha ha, I finished it, awesome stuff, think The Witness is even more fun, it's nice that I can play it on my Pro now, must look awesome on the Pro.

This received a 10 on IGN for the PS4. It is one of the greatest indie titles available. I don't regret purchasing one bit. It's about 3 gigs or so uninstalled, so if you love critically acclaimed and innovative puzzlers, get your device ready and free up a little memory. You'll dive into this one for hours. I'm interested to see the pricing model and file size on iOS.

Roger, Braid is obviously another superb classic but the hugest difference is that Braid is meant to be finished in a much shorter time and the difficulty is significantly lower, for better or worse. Completionists will spend many hours on the Witness and the puzzles are solved by learning from other puzzles. It sounds weird but any die hard puzzle fan will probably gobble this one up.

It looks like the Sunday release was 1Button's Trilogic. Not sure what that means for The Witness, but I sincerely hope it comes out sooner than later.
