If you’re not aware of Firewatch yet, head over to firewatchgame.com for an introduction. But here’s the short of it:
Firewatch is a mystery set in the Wyoming wilderness, where your only emotional lifeline is the person on the other end of a handheld radio.
Firewatch is a narrative game that plays as a short story you’re inside of rather than something you beat. There aren’t scores or failure states. Instead, the focus is on beautiful environments, interactive conversations, and a central mystery.
