Fair 70%

The premise and style were almost ideal for me, until two things happened: I realized how tough navigation is (although I have to praise the analog approach to it), and how restricted and focused the level design is.

Great 100%

Incredible game. I picked it up a few weeks after release back in 2016 with no expectations and was thoroughly surprised. The world is beautiful and the story is engaging and interesting.

Storyline

The year is 1989.

You are a man named Henry who has retreated from your messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched atop a mountain, it's your job to find smoke and keep the wilderness safe.

An especially hot, dry summer has everyone on edge. Your supervisor, a woman named Delilah, is available to you at all times over a small, handheld radio—and is your only contact with the world you've left behind.

But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the world below, you'll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making interpersonal choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have.
