Curiously enough, it was none other than Apple that tipped us off that The Witness [$ 9.99] would be hitting the App Store super soon, and much as I speculated earlier today, “soon” means… Right now. The Witness launched on iOS at $ 9.99, which is far cheaper than the Steam version which is selling for $ 39.99. The Witness is a mysterious puzzle game set on a strange island, and a lot of people have compared it to a “modern day” Myst which, at least from watching trailers, seems like an apt description. I’ve been saving this game to play on my iPad, so, this will be my first time experiencing The Witness tonight.
Check out the trailer from the PC/console release of the game:
If you’re curious how this game will run on your particular iOS device, head into the game’s thread on our forums. Ultra high profile games like this typically have threads flooded with first impressions, so give it a bit and I’m sure it’ll fill up. Now, if you excuse me, I have a mysterious island to explore.
