The Weird Things People Do While Playing The Witness

I’ve done some weird things whilst playing The Witness.

I’ve drawn on paper, I’ve taken pictures on my phone, I stole my wife’s graph paper. At one point I swear to God I actually drew on my television.

So last night I put a shout out for pictures of all the weird things people have done trying to solve puzzles.

I got some really good stuff.

Matthew Hall

Ha! This was my first reply, from Matthew Hall, one of the creators of Crossy Road.

World. Class.

Adrian Chen

I have a notepad page that looks just like this.


I can’t lie — I have considered cutting shit out with scissors. The ‘tetris’ style Witness puzzles are probably my favourite but goddamn the mental gymnastics.

Phil Willis

I have yet to draw the game world. But I haven’t finished the game yet. There’s still time.


Honestly, graph paper is an absolute must. My enjoyment of The Witness went up at 300% when I found graph paper in my wife’s stationary stash.

Elliot Lewis

Elliot told me who couldn’t find a pen and paper in his house, so he went into the bathroom and drew on his mirror with a bar of soap.

A. Bar. Of. Soap.

Paul Puccio

Paul did the whole ‘cut out Tetris blocks’ thing, but when he noticed the pattern on his dish towel he thought he’d save on the paper. Amazing.
