The Witness Complete Walkthrough & Guide

Below is a step-by-step guide to activating all the lasers in The Witness

The Witness is an open-world, exploration-puzzle game, offering mystery and intrigue that is answered only by exploring and solving two-dimensional puzzles scattered throughout the island. Sometimes the answer to a puzzle can be found in the puzzle itself, and sometimes you need to explore your environment. 

Note: While we encourage everyone to at least try and complete The Witness without the use of guides, we understand that sometimes frustration can set in. Before spoiling it for yourself, take a break and return at a later time. If it still doesn't click, feel free to use the guide below (still updating).
