The Looker. A masterful (and free) parody of The Witness

quote [ If you liked The Witness, you'll like The Looker.

If you hated The Witness, you'll love The Looker. ]

I am of the opinion that Jonathan Blow is a genius. A genius who will totally fuck with you, if you're pointlessly stupid enough to try to 100% his games, but that is a part of his genius. And I enjoyed this parody enormously, from the audio logs to the puzzles to Hint Button.

Imagine gravity is fractal, because light is just a wave, and gravity is just a wave, so imagine there's a big piece of glass that splits up gravity like a prism, so there's like blue gravity, and yellow gravity, and then somebody gets hit by the red gravity, and it makes them super heavy, so they have super strength, but, like, they're also really slow. And another guy gets hit by microwave gravity, so he's trying to zap everybody. And just when he's about to zap the main guy, we see a lady come out, and she turns out to be Ultraviolet Girl, and she has super speed, so she beats him. And it, like, also gave her giant cans.

Just been puzzling through The Bridge where you guide a little Escher guy through his designs. Features some mechanics from Blow's first hit "Braid".
