“Firewatch” Game Gets A Film Adaptation

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.
