Firewatch

An indie FPP adventure game and the debut production of the American Campo Santo studio. The team comprises of veteran developers, previously working on such titles as The Walking Dead, Mark of the Ninja, BioShock 2, and Brutal Legend. The story of Firewatch takes place in an enormous forest in the American state of Wyoming, where our hero is trying to escape his day-to-day problems by becoming a ranger. This seemingly calm profession turns into an extremely complicated one, when various unexplainable events take place in the area that our character is charged with patrolling. The incidents are directly connected to our hero’s boss – Delilah, with whom we constantly keep in touch via radio. Building up relations with our superior is one of the key aspects of the game, as she is the only NPC featured in the production. The gameplay revolves exclusively around the single player mode; the popular Unity engine powers the game’s visuals.

Firewatch for PC / Windows is a first person adventure game with major focus on exploration; it is the debut production of the independent Campo Santo studio, which was founded in 2013 in San Francisco. The developer team consists out of seven members, some of them were previously involved in creating other titles, such as The Walking Dead: Season One, Mark of the Ninja, The Cave, Gone Home, BioShock 2 or Brutal Legend.

Story

The action of Firewatch takes place in the modern world, specifically in a grand forest in the American state of Wyoming. We step into the shoes of Henry, a man who is tired of his current life, and decides to run away from his problems and civilization to serve as a woodland ranger through the summer. His job mainly comes down to looking out for early signs of forest fires from a high tower in the middle of the woods; however, the simple, calm and lonely job quickly complicates when Henry becomes a witness of events which cannot simply be overlooked.

Gameplay

Exploration is not the only important aspect of Firewatch on PC / Windows. What is also deeply emphasized is creating a bond between Henry and the only other independent character within his reach – his supervisor, Delilah, who maintains contact with our hero through the radio. Despite the distance between the two, Henry values his boss greatly, as were it not for her, he would be completely alone and she is also directly connected to the oncoming events.

Technology

The game has been created using the Unity engine, which means that we can expect esthetic and good-looking graphics but without amazing texture quality or special graphical effects.

Game modes

Campo Santo have focused greatly on the storyline of Firewatch for PC / Windows and therefore have decided not to implement a multiplayer mode within the production.
