In The Witness, you wake up alone on an island. You don’t know who you are, how you got here, or why this island is inexplicably chock-a-block with control panels that double as puzzles. It’s all very curious, and as you begin to explore the island, solving strings of puzzles as you go, it seems that this island has more secrets than it’s letting on.
