"Ideally we want the game to be in as many places as we can get it, but since we are a small developer and it's a complicated game, we can only do so much at once." That's The Witness developer Jonathan Blow describing to us his desire for the indie puzzler to be available on more than just PlayStation 4. All the way back in February 2013. Now those dreams are coming to fruition as The Witness will make its way to Xbox One on September 13th -- two and a half years after that interview with my coworker Jessica Conditt and six months after its debut on PS4 and PC. In a post on Xbox Wire, Blow lays out what new players should do when they get their hands on it.

Basically, if you get stuck on a puzzle, don't look up solutions on YouTube or from a text-based walk through. Instead, explore another part of the island and you might find the solution while you're at it. If you've avoided the game's spoilers since January, it shouldn't be too hard to resist the urge for a few more weeks, should it?
