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.

While we wait for the last episode in season two of The Walking Dead adventure game, Telltale president Kevin Bruner and Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman have gone ahead and confirmed at Comic-Con (and on Twitter) that there will be a third season.   I wonder if that gives clues on how the last episode might play out. more

The Wolf Among Us isn't crying wolf with this accolades trailer

The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in. The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.more
