I enjoyed Kyle Dreger’s review of the new hit game Firewatch:
Rich Sommer (Henry) and Cissy Jones (Delilah) out distance their scripts and give a performance that is raw and intoxicating. Meandering through the woods in silence, your anxiety increases with the amount of time Delilah doesn’t radio in over your walkie-talkie. When she does, it’s relief.
The trend towards artistic video games — both visually and audibly — is not unlike many other industries. I just feel it’s hitting video games more eloquently.
