The 2016 indie darling of Firewatch is reportedly receiving a film adaptation. À>
The critically acclaimed game first released in February 2016 on PC and PS4 and will come later on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Set in Wyoming in 1989, it tells the story of a fire warden named Henry who is grappling with a family tragedy as he uncovers clues to the mysteries unfolding around him. I'm intentionally vague about the plot in case you haven't played it, because our Firewatch review calls it "an amazing example of interactive storytelling" and cautions that "the less you know about it, the more you will enjoy it. "
" This is the kind of game you only need to play once. Like Journey . Yes, it is as good as Journey. Rougher, yes, but just as brilliant, an example of a game that does something different, does it superbly, and stays with you long after it's over. You 'll never forget Firewatch, "we wrote at time of release.
The Choice Based Narrative - Driven Adventure Game seems like the perfect source material for a feature film , and it looks like there could be early plans for even more Firewatch adaptations. "I'm delighted that [Firewatch co-director and co-designer] Sean and Jake let us ruin their video game perfectby turning it into a movie and / or TV show, ”producer Keith Calder said.
