Firewatch is exactly the kind of original game one would expect a studio like Campo Stanto to produce. This is a first-person exploration mystery coming from artist Olly Moss, Mark of the Ninja lead designer Nels Anderson, and writers / designers Sean Vanaman and Jake Rodkin, both of whom worked on the first season of Telltale's The Walking Dead.

Anyway, back to the new project. Henry, a fire lookout in the mountainous Wyoming wilderness, has a single point of contact with the world back home: his supervisor Delilah.

"But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the world, you'll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making interpersonal choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have."

Unsurprisingly, they're trying not to say too much about the story as it'll be a large part of the appeal. And, again, Firewatch is a mystery. Camp Santo would "love for it to come out in 2015" and is looking into console development. PC, Mac, and Linux versions are happening for sure.

No screenshots or anything along those lines just yet, but I'm counting on a strong art direction given Moss' involvement and the picturesque setting.

Give me Shelter (and all its cute animals, too)

Shelter 2 is putting you higher up on its gorgeous food chain. The first game had you playing as a badger and it seems like no one wants to be a badger. So for the sequel you are a lynx, just trying to raise your family--something we can all relate to.  Oh, and it's out in February. Hooray. more
