Jonathan Blow’s The Witness Will Feature VR Support

Jonathan Blow, the developer behind Braid, has confirmed that his upcoming puzzle adventure game The Witness will support VR headset technology.

He confirmed this news on the game's official website, saying that he's been working with Valve to make this a reality. "Last year I was pessimistic about VR systems in the near future," Blow explained. "But I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at Valve’s virtual reality system. It is so much better than anything else I had used that I was instantly very excited by it."

He then went on to add:

In late November I spent a few days at Valve’s offices working with Atman Binstock and Doug Church to adapt the HMD’s input system more thoroughly for The Witness and to build a few scenes that are playable on the device.

So, we will be supporting [Valve's] device (and any similar devices) with The Witness. But I am really looking forward to see what gets designed specifically for devices like this.

This is certainly exciting news, as a game like The Witness will most definitely work beautifully with virtual reality tech. I just hope it doesn't make me motion sick...
