The first trailer they released was great, it was quite mysterious and really left you curious to know more about the game, really nice animation and visuals too.

Agreed. I really like the visual style they went with too.
It almost looks similar to The Long Dark, only nicer.


oops.. just saw your comment poppinslops..

That's how I felt about Perjoss' comment... but I'll be damned before I edit.

I'm guessing Firewatch's devs are well-aware of the comparison... I'm pretty sure the Long Dark is still in it's Beta (which doesn't include any of the story elements, just the sandbox), but from what I've seen, it'll be grim and gritty.

The Firewatch trailer had an almost mystical, Steven-Kingy undertone... It'll probably be more of a linear, story-driven game.

They both look great... Here's hoping the Long Dark also comes to consoles.

Yeah I have the early access version of the long dark. It's pretty fun. I recommend it to anyone who wants a survival game without the zombies or whatever.. just strictly survival.
Definitely looking forward to Firewatch though. Im all game for a linear story.

I wasn't aware this was coming to consoles... That's great news!

This game looks bloody georgeous... a bit like 'The Long Dark', but with no snow.
I remember the trailer was quite moody... gave the impression of a 'proper' mature storyline - which is impressive, considering it's set in the 80's.

God, I miss the 80's...

“Um, I don’t know what I can say about when we’re showing things and where, and that’s really terrible of me to say, but I mean it’s gonna be shown at some point, somewhere.”

Apparently, what got from that was that it was going to be shown soon. That's really unfair to the developers, I think.

keeping a close eye on this, i hope its awesome, with weather patterns, and day/night cycles, with dangers out there outside your watch room, like bears, animals, shoot maybe even people, and mutants? lol this would be sick, everything is filled with mysterious caves, and at night things get weird, as in it might be quiet then all of a sudden far off you'll hear screams or whatever, and you have a choice to go investigate it or not.

No mutants, the forest isn't as exciting as I thought it would be
