The main objective of The Witness

In The Witness, you must solve all 600 puzzles, discover all the secrets and enjoy the fact that you have achieved this. However, many players will not take absolutely everything, so you can take as little as main objectives: enable an array of lasers aimed at the mountain, which is located on one side of the island.

The lasers are activated by performing puzzles in this zone. In addition to the mandatory puzzles, you will also encounter puzzles that serve as training tools or hide any secrets.

Puzzles are presented as a maze boards. All you need to connect the starting point to the finish, as each zone has its own rules. The definitions of these variations – the first part is solving the puzzle. Second – its collection.

  • Audio files.
  • Boards with puzzles that are not related to sequences or are not like other puzzles.
  • Theatrical keys – they can be found in a closed room. They are used to open short videos under the windmill.
  • Puzzles monuments – they need to find the glyphs on the terrain, linked with black columns, which can be found in different places.
