We take another detour from the past in this month’s game and jump forward to the year 2016…even though in the game we jump back to the classic SCUMM year 1989…but yeah, we played this year’s indie sensation, Firewatch.
Hopefully you got a chance to play it, but if not, it’s only about a 4 hour game in total, and it’s riveting and interesting and just a great experience throughout. Check it out. And after you’ve checked it out, go listen to our podcast all about it.
Also, give it a listen to find out what game we’re playing next month.
As always, you can find the podcast in these places:
- Jason’s beer was Red Eagle and his song was “This Land Is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie (read more about the social impacts of that here)
- Ben’s beer was Diesel or Biermischetrank …he’s not sure. and his song was “She Drives Me Crazy” by Fine Young Cannibals
- Here’s a great Campo Santo blog about the day they landed Olly Moss
- Check out this great video about the Art of Firewatch
- Another great hour long video on the making of the game
- And for kicks and giggles, here’s a fun video about some of the cool easter eggs found throughout Firewatch
