I only read hint 1 and 2 because I wasn't sure how specific you got after that.

read hint 3. hint 4 is another little boost, but not the solution.

Ok, an official plea for help here....

The spoiler below talks about some puzzles I have been staring at for hours like a pigeon. I just peck at them and hope some kibble comes out.

The length of lines aren't limited, but you have seen lines stop before, mid-puzzle. That's a clue you can work with.

I did some math on another panel we're both stuck on and it convinced me it's not solved the way I thought it was. Need to go back there and pay attention to what's going on.
//edit: and thanks for those tips! I will keep cracking.

Finished the marsh that has the blue blocks. Tricky, had me stop for a session and come back, but quite satisfying to do it. Now on the treehouse.

Those are some of the hardest puzzles to work out, in my opinion. I still have trouble wrapping my head around their multiple rules when I come across them.

Not quite.

@Gary Sax--yeah, that is a tough area. Some of those puzzles are crazy subtle. The Tree House's zone's puzzles are a little more easy to get into, but as noted above, I am stuck in it at the moment. Just keep woandering if stymied. And invest in graph paper.

Finished the treehouse. I had a bitch of a time on a super simple one but the rest came with just a little time.

Jeb's treehouse conundrum:

I could give a FUCK about the story, I still haven't unlocked any story. But the puzzles are so perfectly weighted in difficulty... I'm kind of in awe of the puzzle design in the game.

I decided not to look at your spoiler and I ran around the island looking at panels and I figured it out. :thumbsup:

Whew. Overcame some tricky stuff.

Finally FINALLY got that church thing working. What a relief. Thanks all for the Treehouse tips--that was the stickler. Managed to progress on the last frontier as well. Rocking this game.

The spoiler below discusses some puzzles in the late game.

The spoiler below has some speculation in it, late game stuff, again.

I am putting this out there, this is going to be in my Top 10 Games of All Time. As puzzle games go, there is nothing better. The easy comparison is MYST, but honestly, I never liked MYST. I thought the puzzles were shit. The Island in THE WITNESS is just a cool place to walk around. The game inculcates a Zen vibe in obvious and less obvious ways. It joins the pantheon. In no order:

STREET FIGHTER II CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION
TOURNAMENT CYBERBALL 2020
THE WITNESS
FEZ
DIABLO II: LORD OF DESTRUCTION
SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2
THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: A LINK TO THE PAST
METROID
MINECRAFT
NETHACK
