Game Review: Firewatch

Someone in the office recommended Firewatch to me a few months back, so I decided to give it a shot. I have no regrets.

The game starts off with a text-heavy intro that tell you about the protagonist, Henry, and his wife, Julia. Through a series of paragraphs that sometimes end with two choices for you to choose from, you learn that Julia suffered from Alzheimer’s and how it put a huge strain on Henry’s relationship with her. No matter what choices you make, Henry ends up taking a summer job as a fire lookout in Shoshone National Forest.
