I don’t usually give individual game sales their own posts these days, but a deal like this needs to be shouted from the rooftops. Jonathan Blow’s The Witness debuted for $40 on PC, and cost only $9.99 when it made its way over to iOS. So that was already a great deal for a game that was one of my favorite games of 2017. But now it’s on sale for $4.99, half the price it normally is and a steal for the amount of content you’re getting.
For some context, I made more gameplay videos for The Witness than any other game I’ve played, I solved over four hundred puzzles, and I’m still not finished. Each puzzle is also hand-crafted and teaches you something new, so it’s not like those free apps that generate thousands of filler puzzles. There’s also secrets to uncover and gorgeous visuals to go along with it, making it easy to get lost in it for hours.
That said, it is an open world game that doesn’t feel quite perfect on touchscreen devices, especially smaller ones. But it does have iCloud sync, so you can play on your iPad at home and still take it on the go using your iPhone. You can read my full review here and watch some gameplay videos here. But this is a crazy low price for such a huge game with so much packed into it. I don’t think it’s ever going to go lower than this price — and it shouldn’t! So if you have any interest in the game whatsoever, grab it now.
