Firewatch has been on my hot list for a minute now. Naturalistic dialogue. A sense of humor. An underlying current of drama. A raggedy thread of intrigue, danger, and vice, ready to spark like a smoldering cigarette butt in a field of dry grass. Oh, and art direction by the incomparable Olly Moss.
This video reveals tidbits more of all those things that keeps Firewatch labeled as one of my most wanted.
Firewatch is still aiming for a launch (sometime) this year on PC and PlayStation 4.
