Firewatch is a narrative-driven game played from a first-person perspective and set in 1989. The protagonist is Henry, a man in his forties, who takes on the solitary job of manning a firewatch lookout in the secluded wilderness of Two Forks Lookout Area in Wyoming. However, the game starts fourteen years earlier, in Boulder, Colorado, in 1975. The first minutes of the game are largely text-based and explain how Henry met his wife Julia and what led him to the job on his own many years later. The player can choose between different responses to help shape Henry's background.
Early on Henry discovers a disposable camera he can use to take twenty pictures. After completing the game, the player's pictures are shown in the credits, but the game also generates a link, uploading the pictures to the website firewatch.camera. The player can have these developed as a set of 4" x 6" glossy prints with free, worldwide shipping almost anywhere for $ 15.
