If you have some free time this weekend, I have a recommendation for you. Play Firewatch, the best video game about Wyoming ever.

I realize that this is purely personal opinion. Maybe you think Red Dead Redemption 2 is a better game, but it's not specifically about Wyoming. It just kinda looks like it was inspired by our state.

I really do believe that Firewatch is the best video game that is really about Wyoming. I've played it from start to finish and will try my best not to spoil the story for you.

Here's how Firewatch describes itself on the official game website:

Firewatch is a mystery set in the Wyoming wilderness, where your only emotional lifeline is the person on the other end of a handheld radio.

Firewatch really is an experience. You play the game from a first-person perspective where you will see your hands in front of you when you look at your compass or map. There is a very personal reason why your character is in the Wyoming wilderness. You will gradually learn that reason as you play the game.

The unique thing about Firewatch is it really captures being alone in the Wyoming wilderness as much as it's possible for a video game to accomplish that. On top of that, the game is also about you solving a mystery. There's indications that a forest fire may have been started. You have to investigate. Who (or what) started the fire? Is the person on the other end of the radio really your friend? Is there someone (or something) in the forest with you?

Firewatch is a game you can play if you have a decent PC, a XBox One, Playstation 4 or Nintendo Switch. There's also a new sandbox mode where you can just explore the Wyoming wilderness without a story. No matter how you play it, make sure you play it. Firewatch is an unforgettable Wyoming video game experience.
