The independent game development studio Campo Santo Productions announced their début title Firewatch at PAX 2014. The single-player first-person explorer follows Henry, who has taken up a summer job as a fire lookout in Wyoming’s wilderness with the only lifeline being radio chatter with another watch tower.
The developers who work at Campo Santo have previously contributed to games such as Bioshock II, The Walking Dead: Season 1, The Cave, Mark of the Ninja and Brutal Legend, so they aren’t new to game development. Firewatch uses the Unity 3D game engine, and the début screenshots and video reveal some pretty stunning graphics.

The video above is about the information we get about the game for now, and it isn’t clear yet what the excact objectives and goals of the game are. I doesn’t look like it will be a smooth sailing and the player should encounter many problems, beyond their fire-watch duties. The game is set for a 2015 release.
