Out since last Tuesday, Thekla Inc’s The Witness is on track to sell more in a week than Braid sold in its first year. This news comes straight from producer Jonathan Blow himself who revealed in a series of tweets that the puzzle game is doing really well both in terms of sales and reception. He wrote:
I am glad so many people are enjoying The Witness! It is nice to get so many notes from people who appreciate the game.
It’s hard to talk about numbers without breaking NDAs, but The Witness is on track to sell more in a week than Braid sold in its first year, and Braid was a hit indie game! (I’ll let you know if this officially happens!) Which is not to be too money-oriented, it’s just great that we’ll be able to make the next game at a comparable budget level (maybe bigger, we’ll see!)
If you haven’t already, make sure to check out PlayStation LifeStyle’s review of the game in which Chandler notes that The Witness is a “brilliant, beautiful, masterfully crafted” game.
