In the valley of Gaben
Valve has acquired acclaimed indie developer Campo Santo, the team behind vibrant walking simulator Firewatch and the upcoming In the Valley of Gods. While the studio will relocate to Bellevue, it’ll continue to operate autonomously, meaning that it will still be making its own games on its own terms. Presumably it’ll just...
From the developers of Firewatch comes In the Valley of Gods, a new narrative adventure title. Though no dialogue was heard in the above trailer, we see that you play as one of two female explorers travelling through an ancient Egyptian temple.

Relight the fire
Maintain a vigilant lookout, because Firewatch will be traipsing out at retail this year, courtesy of Limited Run Games, the company behind physical releases of various other niche titles.

Now that Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is out and analysed, it's time to turn your attention to a different kind of first-person adventure. Firewatch, the upcoming PlayStation 4 game set in the Wyoming wilderness, may not have orb people and Chad graffiti, but it's interesting all the same. Developed by a slew of ex-The Walking Dead...
One of the more innocuous announcements at Sony's impressive E3 press conference today was that indie darling Firewatch will be making its console debut on PlayStation 4.
