“Firewatch” Developers Join Valve Corp.

The small gaming studio team of Campo Santo burst onto the scene the other year with “Firewatch,” a celebrated first-person mystery game set in a 1980s forested wilderness and following a widower and lone fire lookout trying to solve mysterious goings on.

Now the company behind the Steam platform and “Portal” and “Half-Life” franchises, Valve Corporation, has bought the studio it sounds like. In a post last night on their official website, the twelve-person Campo Santo team say they “have agreed to join Valve, where we will maintain our jobs as video game developers.”

They add that they will continue production on their current project, “In the Valley of Gods,” which will now be released as a Valve game and still plan to support “Firewatch” (including an upcoming Nintendo Switch port).
