Legitimately interested in your usage of Metroidvania for this game, I don’t really see the connection? I haven’t fully played the Witness yet, but I’ve played enough to see that it’s a first person puzzle game at its heart, whereas Metroidvania would be a platformer with an open map that requires you to explore to find items that open up further exploration. I’m not saying that there can’t be a connection, but it really seems like a stretch to call it that.
