New The Witness screenshot shows off ‘Last Minute Area’

Posted on February 3, 2014 AT 05:00am

Orsi Spanyol, co-designer for Jonathan Blow’s upcoming PC and PlayStation 4 puzzle title The Witness, has released a new screenshot for the game showcasing a new area entitled ”Last Minute Area.”

“Around Christmas time, Jon surprised us with a bunch of new slab buildings full of puzzles in the center of the island,” Spanyol wrote. “Previously, there were only some empty ruins here, so the whole area was redesigned by the architects to accommodate the new puzzles. I attacked it first, about 3 weeks ago, adding a couple of puzzles myself and starting to model the three buildings on the right.

“Now, the entire art team is working on it. Luis is taking care of the entire left portion, which is still mostly low ruins, Eric is tackling the tower in the middle, and Alex is working on the building behind the tower, with the orange box sticking out of it. There is still one slab building up for grabs, but it’s coming together very quickly for such a huge area!”

Now the use of the term “last minute area” seems to suggest that the game is almost complete, however it is still yet to be given an official release date. When asked about a release date Blow simply says “it will be released when it is done.”
