I started Firewatch a few days ago and, since I was happy with what I’d gotten done this week, decided to finish the game tonight rather than stress about generating more content.
The game is more of a point and click visual novel. This is not an upbeat story, buy does have a bit of dry humor in it. As it starts, so it ends. On a down note. There is no resolution, just a snapshot of someone’s life doing what they need to in order to get by.
It had an interesting art style that adds to the charm of the game and it does well to guide you even if there are multiple paths and dialog choices.
All in all, I enjoyed it. It’s a shorter game that will fill a few hours if you choose to check it out. Nothing stressful, but not as relaxing as I was hoping for.
