The Looker is a free jigsaw parody of other, much more serious puzzles

If you enjoyed The Witness but wish you could play a game full of toilet humor, strong language, and general banter, I have great news. This game exists and is free: it’s called The Watcher. (opens in new tab) In the grand tradition of games making fun of other games, it’s not the top, and it’s not the bottom either: it sure is an entry.

I swear. I had fun, and you know what? It’s free. It’s a lot of effort for what amounts to a goofy joke about another game, and I think it’s worth giving creator Subcreation Studio some respect for that. 97% of positive reviews can’t be wrong.

Here’s how The Looker describes itself: “The Looker is a single-player game that respects you as a smart player and treats your time as…hypothesis or whatever.) As such, I’ll level with you here – not every joke will be a hit, but there’s no filler material, the puzzles are fun, and if you really think about it, aren’t the real solutions the, uhh… friends we make along the way?”

You can find The Looker for free on Steam. (opens in new tab)
