Firewatch tells the story of a man named Henry after he takes a job as a fire lookout. But as he adjusts to his new post something sinister begins to rear its head. The game is played from first person and the player guides Henry from event to event, interacting with items in the enviroment and speaking to Delilah – his boss – over the radio. The characters and plot are incredibly well written, breathing life into a seemingly boring job. The gorgeous art doen by Olly Moss also brings the world to life, as does the touching score by Chris Remo.
