About this game

You wake up, alone, on a strange island full of puzzles that will challenge and surprise you.

You don't remember who you are, and you don't remember how you got here, but there's one thing you can do: explore the island in hope of discovering clues, regaining your memory, and somehow finding your way home.

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. So, this is a game full of ideas.

Requires SHIELD Android TV, a controller, and 3 GB of storage. Supports cloud saves with Google Play Games sign-in.

So boring it makes me want to jump out of the window. Seriously. How this thing won a Game of the Year award, I'll never know. No story, no music, no sense of accomplishment, no nothing. All you get are grids and dots. Can't remember the last time I was so overwhelmed by a game.

The game itself is great -- if only I were able to finish playing it! I got about halfway through and the game no longer runs. The loading screen appears for a bit, then I just get dumped back to the home screen. So I just played half the game and now have no way of completing it. Nvidia support just told me "We haven't had any issues been reported by users for the same." without any offer to help fix the problem. They also told me "Unfortunately refund is something you have check with Goggle Play store Tech support as this is a game from them." - which makes absolutely zero sense. The game is not "from them" -- it's an Nvidia Lightshield Studios Game. And Google won't issue a refund after 48 hours. So please do yourself a favor and get this game for a different platform, ideally directly from Thekla (the publisher) and avoid giving any money to Nvidia for this. Because you may not be able to finish the game and you'll have no recourse for getting your money back.
