Good Universe is teaming with independent video game developer Campo Santo to develop content for both video games and feature films. The first project in the deal will be a film adaptation of Campo Santo’s first video game and one of this year’s most acclaimed game titles – “Firewatch”.
The game runs around four hours and is a first-person experience set in the Wyoming wilderness in the 1980s. A fire lookout named Henry uncovers clues in the wilderness about mysterious occurrences and a shadowy figure that seems to watch him from afar
His only means of communications is via a walkie-talkie with his supervisor, Delilah. The game has sold almost one million copies to date. No word on when the film might begin production.
