Firewatch, finally a decent walking simulator.

maxresdefault
So, this have to be one of the best walking simulator I’ve played so far. It actually has some gameplay, a really interesting story and cute graphics, though it would have been better with a more realistic approach.

The game starts out with some events that’s taking place throughout your life, and you can change it to an extent through choices that the game gives you. There’s text and choices before the game really opens up.

The chemistry between Delilah and Henry is awesome. It’s fun to listen to them talk and share their stories and they made me laugh quite a few times. The story overall is realistic and nicely done, the use of radios were a really interesting¬†touch to it.

After all the time spending exploring, talking to Delilah and finding things, the ending didn’t go as I thought it would. Whatever I chose, it didn’t really matter in the end anyhow. The game got me a bit paranoid, and towards the end I checked in every direction whenever I could.

Maybe that was what the game was going for all this time. Where I thought it would go in a completely insane direction, it simply went with the fact that spending all that time alone in the woods just messes with your head. Makes you paranoid and things just aren’t as they seem.

There isn’t much more to say about this game without spoiling it all, so I’ll go ahead and say that you should really try it out. It’s a great game to play on a Saturday afternoon for example.
