Firewatch is an upcoming first person adventure game developed by Campo Santo and published by Panic for PlayStation 4, Windows, OS X, and Linux operating systems. The game is a mystery set in the Wyoming wilderness. The players  only emotional lifeline is the person on the other end of a handheld radio.

You play as a man named Henry who has escaped from a difficult life to work as a fire lookout. Perched high atop a mountain, it’s Henrys’ job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe and free from fires. An especially hot, dry summer has everyone on edge and Henry’s supervisor, a woman named Delilah, is the voice over a small, handheld radio.

Something strange draws Henry out of his lookout tower and into the wilderness world where he will need to explore a wild and unknown environment, face questions and make interpersonal choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship he has.

The launch date is set for February 2016. The developers are still polishing, optimizing, writing, and developing the last bits of the game. The game will be available worldwide with a simultaneous release.
