We’ve seen lots and lots of big video games adapted into movies over the years, many of which end up not being very good. What we don’t see very often, is a much smaller indie game make an impact big enough to lead to it being turned into a movie. But one such indie game released earlier this year, a mystery adventure game titled Firewatch, looks to change all that.
It’s been announced that the game’s developer, Campo Santo, and film production company Good Universe have partnered up to develop both video games and movies that will bridge the two forms of entertainment. Their first project will be a movie based on Firewatch, which is actually the young Campo Santo’s first game.
One of the most exciting upcoming video game releases (at least for me anyway) just got a little bit more exciting. The game is called Firewatch, and it looks truly remarkable in its simplicity.
Not only will the game be released on February 9th (less than a week from now!), but it will be available not for the usual $60 new game price tag, but for only $20, which is pretty amazing. On top of that, I just discovered that geek favorite artist Olly Moss worked on the art for the game as well.
You can find more info and watch a handful of new preview videos for Firewatch below.
There’s a game on the way that I’m super excited about, and it’s titled Firewatch. It’s been around for a little while now, but unfortunately I haven’t had the chance to gush about it here on Geeks of Doom yet.
Thankfully a brand new demo video has been released showing off 17 new minutes of gameplay action—and better yet, the footage is a continuation of the previous 17-minute gameplay demo that initially got me excited to play it. So instead of sharing only the new footage, you can read more about the game and find trailers and both 17-minute demo videos below for lots and lots and lots of gameplay goodness if you’ve not yet seen anything related to this one before.
