Braid developer Jonathan Blow’s new, upcoming puzzle game “The Witness” is finally nearing release. As such, the indie developer has seen fit to unveil the game’s talented voice-over cast. There are definitely names here people will recognize:
- Ashley Johnson, who many may recognize for her fantastic job voicing Ellie from The Last of Us.
- Phil LaMarr, who many Metal Gear fans may know as Vamp from Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4.
- Matthew Waterson, who more recently voiced Virgil in Fallout 4.
- Terra Deva, who is also known for more musical pursuits like her collaboration with Swiss group Shakedown in the song “At Night.”
Despite Terra Deva’s status as a musician, she also does voice work as The Witness reportedly does not have music. Despite having a voice cast, The Witness will feature the same subtle storytelling as Braid before it. Players will need to seek, discover, and possibly interpret what is really going on behind the scenes.
The Witness is finally hitting release on January 26. It will be on PlayStation 4 and PC, with an iOS release later on.
