John Blow's next game?

Johnathan Blow, creator of last year’s indie favorite, Braid, has announced a his next game on his blog.

Simply titled “The Witness,” Blow provided a link to the new game’s official web site, which greets visitors with this quote from  Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu:

Something amorphous and consummate existed before Heaven and Earth. Solitude! Vast! Standing alone, unaltering. Going everywhere, yet unthreatened. It can be considered the Mother of the World. I don’t know its name, so I designate it, ‘Tao’. Compelled to consider it, name it ‘the Great’.

And that’s just the splash page. With a quote like that,  it doesn’t look like The Witness will be any less deep or artsy than its predecessor.

The Witness, according to the site, is “an exploration-puzzle game on an uninhabited island,” and is set to be finished in late 2011.

Looks like fans of Braid (myself included) will have something to drool over for the next couple years. We’ll keep you posted as more details of the game are revealed.
