PUBLISHED BY: Panic, Campo Santo

We’re back in 1989. Henry is a middle-aged man who, due to personal troubles, decides to take a summer job of a park lookout and in consequence embarks upon a couple months of isolation. The gameplay of “Firewatch” takes place in a hyperrealistic world of the Yellowstone National Park. Henry slowly acquaints himself with its tough environment and unwanted troublemaking tourists. The game begins with a shocking, heartrending text opening. Thanks to the prologue, the player makes her/his first moral decisions and becomes emotionally involved in the game’s unfolding. Moral ambiguity and the discovery of new secrets turn “Firewatch” into a mix of a subtle thriller and a psychological game.

Free admission.
