Thekla president and Braid developer Jonathan Blow announced on the PlayStation Blog that the team has just finished recording voiceover for the game, "which means it's a good time to tell you about the voice actors."

The Witness's voices feature Ashley Johnson, who is known for Ellie from The Last of Us; Phil LaMarr, who voiced Vamp from the Metal Gear Solid series and Ratbag from Shadow of Mordor; Matthew Waterson, the voice of Sir Lucan in The Order: 1886; and Terra Deva, a hit musician known for Shakedown's hit "At Night."

Blow mentions that The Witness makes use of audio logs, which he says are done in a "highly non-traditional way."

"When you first encounter them you won't find much in the way of answers," Blow explains. "But, if you keep looking, you will eventually be able to piece together what's going on."

Blow stresses that the game's story is subtle and players will have to explore and read between the lines to figure out what's going on.

The Witness is coming out for PlayStation 4 and PC on January 26.

It was revealed last year that The Witness would take most people 20-25 hours to complete. Blow also said there's a puzzle in the game that only one percent of people will be able to solve.
