Firewatch is your next adventure game to play


I like me a good adventure game and while I think anything by Telltale Games should be your first point of call for adventure gaming, a few other games have caught my eye, most especially, Firewatch.

Firewatch places you in the role of Henry who is a down-on-his-luck Wyoming Fire-Lookout that reports to his supervisor, Delilah.   Believe it or not, the interaction between these two characters is what made me decide I wanted to play this game.  If there is one thing in life that makes me stupidly happy it's banter, you know, witticisms traded back and forth in quick succession?  Well the scripted interactions between Henry and Delilah are lovely and will make you smile as they trade lines.

That aside, Firewatch has fantastic ambient sound, the graphics are lovely and it has a wonderful way of drawing you in for every scene.  But don't take my word for it, check out the video above which is an IGN walkthrough of the first 17 mins and see what you think.
