Blow had already displayed last year at Reboot a first, very early build of the next game, and since then the project has done a lot of progress: back then, they had built 25 hours of gameplay in that prototype, now the team is at around 40 hours. During GameLab in Barcelona, Jonathan Blow had a few interviews where he discussed what\u2019s coming next for Thekla after the much successful release of The Witness.

We haven\u2019t really officially announced the game yet, so I don\u2019t want to say too much about it, but we\u2019ve shown it in these talks. It\u2019s weird. It\u2019s a level-based game. There\u2019s a lot of levels. We have a lot more levels than we had last year, so there\u2019s correspondingly a lot more gameplay there,\u201d he told GamesBeat. \u201cWe\u2019re working on the graphics engine right now because we\u2019re building a new engine from the ground up. We have to. We spent seven years making a game engine that we shipped with The Witness, but then, this new thing is in a new programming language, so we can\u2019t directly use that engine.\u201d As for the release date, Blow added that \u201cit\u2019s always hard to schedule games like that, the way that I do it. We don\u2019t do it like Electronic Arts. We don\u2019t pick a quarter and ship the game. We\u2019re just trying to make the best game.\u201d \u201cWhen it\u2019s kind of close to done, then we know. With The Witness, we announced the release date as soon as I knew what it was, which was five months before release, out of a six-and-a-half year development.\u201d As you can see, the project is very early in the making, so we might not hear about it anytime soon. Anyway, looking at how good The Witness and Braid were, it looks like Blow deserves a little patience and trust on this.
