Developers of Firewatch, Campo Santo, revealed its new game called In The Valley Of The Gods with a world premier trailer at the Game Awards 2017. The new game shares a striking resemblance to Firewatch in terms of art-direction and seems to have NPC cooperative elements.
It opens with an old-time film grain filter and leads into the playable character exploring a tomb with an accompanying female partner. It appears to be a first-person adventure game that takes place in a 20th century Egypt, given the equipment the characters use. They climb through the tomb while perusing the ancient art that covers the walls, and eventually find themselves atop the tomb. They pull out a tripod, attach a camera, and take a black-and-white photo of the sunrise that perfectly aligns with a statue.
In The Valley Of The Gods is set to release at an unspecified date in 2019, so we’ll have to wait a while to get our hands on Campo Santo’s latest work. You can watch the full trailer in the video above.
