Jonathan Blow and his team have released a new batch of screenshots that show off one of the areas in first-person puzzle game The Witness.

“The marsh had been left unresolved for a long time, so we decided to tear it apart and finish it as a team,” the developer wrote. “Eric updated the main structures, Alex adjusted the catwalks, Luis took care of all the lowest structures, and I handled the vegetation and general colors.

“Color was a big challenge in getting the area to look nice, since it is a marsh research facility with lots of crazy colored algae pools…there was a high risk of making it look like a clown exploded on it. With some careful color choices, attention to every detail and blocking in the views on a step by step basis, however, I think we managed to avoid that risk and succeeded in creating a pleasant, colorful area.”

The Witness is set to release later this year for PlayStation 4, PC, and iOS.
