In case you somehow missed it, Firewatch this is the first game from the indie team Campo Santo. Formed by indie team from Mark of the Ninja lead designer Nels Anderson, The Walking Dead developers Sean Vanaman and Jake Rodkin, along with freelance graphic designer and former Studio Ghibli artist Olly Moss.
The adventure had been in development for almost two years and is currently in the final stages of development – “tweaking, tuning, bug fixing and polishing.”
Firewatch begins in 1989 in Wyoming out in the wilderness, with the character of Henry, a fire lookout who becomes embroiled in a mystery of strange events. Henry is able to communicate with Delilah his supervisor, often leading to hilarious moments between the two. Exploration and freedom is key to the game, and Henry is given a multitude of dialogue options when making decisions throughout that will determine is relationship with the character.
The game is coming to Linux, Mac and Windows PC, along with a console debut on PlayStation 4. Campo Santo is aiming for a worldwide release for Firewatch, or “as world-wide as our small studio can pull off.”
