The Witness, the critically acclaimed open-world puzzler will be next in line to join the roster of games gone free on the Epic Games Store. The current free game, Oxenfree will be replaced by Jonathan Blow’s serene Mindbender starting April 4 until April 18, 2019.
The Witness is a single-player game in an open world with dozens of locations to explore and over 500 puzzles. This game respects you as an intelligent player and it treats your time as precious. There’s no filler; each of those puzzles brings its own new idea into the mix. Inspired by Myst, the game involves the exploration of an island filled with natural and man-made structures. The player progresses by solving puzzles, which are based on interactions with grids presented on panels around the island or paths hidden within the environment.
