Firewatch fans, we’re about to fan the flames of your desire with exciting news. The first-person narrative adventure is getting the cinematic treatment with its own feature film.

Campo Santo is teaming up with Good Universe, a company which finances and produces films, to bring the story to the big screen.

When we met Good Universe we were floored by how they recognize, cultivate and produce incredible stories. It’s rare you meet another group that shares so many of your values and makes the process of creating things even more exciting. We can’t wait to see what we make together

Firewatch was a surprise success, selling over 500,000 copies in its first month and captivating its audience with some top-notch storytelling.
“Finding extraordinary content is incredibly exciting, and with the Campo Santo team, we felt an immediate simpatico with their utterly beguiling storytelling and amazing creative instincts

No further details surrounding the adaptation have been releases such whether it will follow the same story or drift into unknown territory. Whatever happens, the team at Good Universe will have to work hard to retain the original game’s distinctive atmosphere and feel. Transforming the first-person game into a more voyeuristic experience of cinema is a challenging task.

Hopefully, the collaboration between Good Universe and Campo Santo will help the project grow with a respect for its gaming roots.
