In Firewatch, the job isn't to keep the wilderness from burning down

New, 25 comments

Firewatch, the first effort from a team of notable games developers and designers, released its first trailer this week, laying out the mystery that envelops the protagonist and the distant yet intimate radio relationship he has with his partner.

Firewatch is the work of Campo Santo, a studio comprising Jake Rodkin and Sean Vanaman, both alumni of Telltale Games' acclaimed The Walking Dead Series, as well as Nels Anderson of Klei Entertainment's Mark of the Ninja, and the well known graphic designer Olly Moss.

Firewatch appears to be set sometime in the past (note the use of the typewriter at 1:15 in the above video.)

The game is being developed in Unity and is planned to release for PC on the Linux, Mac and Windows operating systems sometime next year.
