The Looker is a fantastic little parody of Johnathan Blow’s The Witness, with some surprisingly creative puzzles and excellent gags.
In The Looker you find yourself on a mysterious low poly island filled with signs containing The Witness-esque puzzles. In each puzzle you need to draw a line from the Start to the End. This is fairly simple initially, but as you progress things get a little more creative and you have to start thinking outside of the box (figuratively and literally). You’ll also be able to find some fun voice recordings and if you get stuck you can always ask a friendly Hint sign (though the helpfulness of their advice may vary!)
The Looker is clearly a tongue-in-cheek parody of The Witness, but it’s still an excellent game in its own right. It’s got some very inventive puzzle design, some fun twists, lots of laugh-out-loud gags and the voice acting is superb (particularly the rusty Hint sign). A perfect little game if you’re hankering for a bit of The Witness style puzzling and a good laugh. Highly recommended.
