Firewatch, A First Person Mystery Video Game About a Man Working As a Fire Lookout in Wyoming

Firewatch, the highly anticipated first person mystery game created by Campo Santo and distributed by Panic, was recently released on Steam and PlayStation 4. In the game you play Henry, a man working as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness, whose only contact with the outside world is with his supervisor Delilah through a handheld radio. The dialog between Henry (Rich Sommer, who played Harry Crane on Mad Men) and Delilah is wonderful and the game features amazing art by Olly Moss and Jane Ng.


Campo Santo also released the beautiful original soundtrack composed by Chris Remo which is available for purchase on bandcamp.
