Firewatch, one of 2016’s most critically acclaimed indie games, is heading to Switch this spring, developer Campo Santo has announced.

Set in the late ’80s, you play as a man who heads to the Wyoming wilderness to take on the quiet, introspective job of a fire lookout. It doesn’t stay lonely for long, however, as you form a budding friendship with a fellow lookout over walkie-talkie and piece together the past of the area.

Check out the fresh description from Campo Santo below:

The year is 1989 and you’ve just taken a job deep in the Wyoming wilderness.

Alone for the summer with nothing to do but spot fires, your supervisor Delilah is always just a call away on your radio—and as you’re pulled out of the tower into the dense forest below, she’s your only contact with the world you’ve left behind.

Firewatch is an award-winning first-person narrative adventure available soon for your Nintendo Switch.

Imagine: The sounds of a babbling brook, a cool mountain breeze blowing through the timber. And in your hands, your trusty Nintendo Switch.

This Spring, take your Nintendo Switch on an outdoor adventure and experience the gripping mystery beloved by gamers and critics alike.
