J Blow teases new game, The Witness

Out in 2011 on multiple platforms.

Braid creator Jonathan Blow has begun teasing his name game, The Witness, a new website for which says it will be released on multiple platforms - "whatever makes sense in late 2011, when the game will hopefully be finished".

In a post on his blog a little while ago pointing to the teaser site, Blow said The Witness is "very visual" and that he would start demonstrating as much once the group making it is ready.

The teaser site describes The Witness as "an exploration-puzzle game on an uninhabited island", and on its first page displays the following text:

"Something amorphous and consummate existed before Heaven and Earth. Solitude! Vast! Standing alone, unaltering. Going everywhere, yet unthreatened. It can be considered the Mother of the World. I don't know its name, so I designate it, 'Tao'. Compelled to consider it, name it 'the Great'."

Meanwhile, Hothead has confirmed that it is converting Blow's last game, Braid, to PS3, although Blow told Eurogamer he is not involved.
