Continuing on the subject of The Witness, even creator Jonathan Blow has been taken aback by the speed runs that have been posted of his game so far. Recall that the game is estimated to come in at about 40 hours and can even go as long as 100 hours. Well, the speed running community has been hard at work and someone has already been able to complete the full game in just under a half-hour.
That someone is speed runner Azorae, who has participated in several Games Done Quick marathons. He's run through puzzle games like Portal 2 and The Talos Principle in the past, so The Witness was right up his alley. And sure enough, he was able to complete the game in a staggering 25:53. The feat was so mindblowing that even Blow himself was astounded.

Catch the full speed run below. Of course, needless to say, there are spoilers in this video, but give it a look and let's hope this means a Summer Games Done Quick exhibition is in the works.
