'Firewatch' studio Campo Santo is building an Egyptian adventure

'In the Valley of Gods' lands in 2019.

Campo Santo, the independent studio behind Firewatch, is working on a new game called In the Valley of Gods. It's a first-person adventure set in the 1920s that takes players through the abandoned, ancient deserts of Egypt. Here's how Campo Santo describes it:

"You play as an explorer and filmmaker who, along with your old partner, has traveled to the middle of the desert in the hopes of making a seemingly-impossible discovery and an incredible film."

In the Valley of Gods is due to hit PC in 2019, though the studio hasn't ruled out a launch on consoles.

Campo Santo's first game, Firewatch, was also a first-person adventure, and that approach served the studio well. The game found commercial and critical success in 2016, coming from a team of veteran developers and artists including Olly Moss, Sean Vanaman and Jake Rodkin.
