Firewatch

Firewatch comic review by Game Pad Ink

Editor's note: This comic was first published under Nate's "Man v. Backlog" project, hence the lack of a podcast, a video, or even Nick.

With best-in-class dialog and a gorgeous environment to explore, Firewatch's narrative will enthrall you — even if it falls a bit flat in the end.

Genres: Adventure and First-Person

Similar to: Gone Home and Dear Esther
