It’s been quite some time since the artwork for a game has gotten me excited before any other aspect of it, but such is the case with Firewatch. The game, created by Campo Santo, has had a barebones website up for a long time, and the image on the site is just utterly gorgeous. I’ve actually used it as a desktop background already, long before any footage of the actual game had been released. It’s that pretty. Anyway, at long last, we now have a trailer for the game, and it looks very eerie and mysterious. I’m getting an interactive novel vibe off of it more than a mechanic-driven game vibe, and that’s just fine by me. Can’t wait to play this!
Firewatch is due out in 2015.
