The first gameplay trailer for Jonathan Blow's 'The Witness' is colorful and perplexing

I still don't know what this game is about, but it looks beautiful.

Jonathan Blow is most well known for Braid, a 2008 game that helped popularize indie games in a mainstream sense. He's been working on an unrelated follow-up, The Witness, ever since.

The Witness has been compared to Myst in terms of atmosphere and setting, but I put less and less faith in that analogy every time I see new footage and screens from the game. Just what is The Witness about? Watch the new trailer below and try to figure it out.

Blow has promised a release on iPad, among other platforms, and a 2014 release is expected.
