The Witness – The Witness (SPOILER HEAVY)

Yesterday I finished The Witness by Jonathan Blow…


… and this was a very brave game to make… it feels like it has no story to drive you along.  Instead it drives you along through a willingness to solve puzzles and explore a complex and beautiful world.  These puzzles get more and more complicated, not through complex rules, but a collection of simple rules being layered on top of each other.

But how does the title link back to the game itself….?

Bendy and the Ink Machine – Stuck in the Ink (Spoiler)

OK so I promised on Wednesday to mention the one flaw with the process theMeatley games places the players through by forcing players to go through the whole game.

Bendy and the Ink Machine – Build Our Machine

WOW!  Just WOW!  I’m surprised!  WOW!


Normally in a episodic game, you play the episode, enjoy it or hate it and then move on.

Now while I think it was a bit of a con to force you to play through the entire game to save it.  I wouldn’t have seen the new stuff if I hadn’t so I’m glad I did and this is why I believe they did it.

I know that sounds weird but like The Surge and the Dark Souls, there are key elements to Tron that is similar to the other two games also have.

There was one key weapon in Tron that is perfect for a Dark Souls type game…

Tooth and Tail – A Study in Micro/Macro

OK so I haven’t been able to complete the original plan…


However I am impressed at Tooth and Tail and I do want to get this down on screen.

The key thing that I like about this game is it brings the most complicated part of an RTS and simplifies it while giving a decent strategy level.
