The Witness packshot image
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".

The Witness

GeForce RTX 3070 Mobile

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3070 Mobile Performance Review

Running a GeForce RTX 3070 Mobile to play The Witness shows us that we expect it to get a very strong 150 FPS. That base FPS is at 1080p and High visual settings.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to The Witness rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the GeForce RTX 3070 Mobile will still get a solid 49 FPS.

To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. The Witness gets 49 FPS at 4K Ultra costing $0 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 68 FPS costing $0 per frame. Otherwise you can get some great performance by moving down a resolution bracket to 1440p. 82 FPS in Ultra 1440p costing $0 per frame or 1440p High gets 114 FPS costing $0 per frame.
