The yet-completed version of the game allowed played to walk about the island from a first-person perspective. Throughout the island are blue panels that players can interact with; those seen in the demonstration were primarily mazes, requiring players to draw a line from a starting point to a finish point. Other panels showed more complex mazes to be completed. Completing each panel unlocked other areas to explore or panels to complete. Blow has stated that there is more to the game than these mazes, in response to concerns from players; to Blow, "the point is the magic that happens in the player's mind when he understands the subtle things that the mazes are saying - because the mazes aren't just puzzles, they are lines of communication that aggregate, become more complex and eventually say surprising things".
Your PC will need a graphics card thats as powerful as a GeForce GTX 780/Radeon R9 290 and it should be paired with either a Phenom II X4 805/Core i3-4330TE 2.4GHz CPU to match the The Witness recommended system specs. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on High graphics settings on 1080p monitor resolution. 8 GB will also be needed to achieve the The Witness rec specs and get 60FPS. You should also have 4 GB system memory for min specs. Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 10 or The Witness won’t run. We suggest a 6 year old PC to play smoothly.
