Default In the Valley of Gods

From the creators of Firewatch, In the Valley of Gods is a single-player first-person adventure. Explore a remote and ancient valley in the Egyptian desert, uncovering treasure and treachery in pursuit of a discovery that could bring you fame and fortune—or leave you for dead, buried beneath the sands.

I really, really liked Firewatch and this looks sooo good. Too bad it's releasing in 2019. Can't wait to play it.

I noticed that both of them are females. Looks interesting.

Yes Yes yes!!! I'm such a stan for Campo Santo. Firewatch was so incredible, their style and writing is superb, I can't wait for this! Now we actually get to see character models and facial animation from them.

Really nice interview for PCGAMER: Navigating ancient tombs and a strained friendship In the Valley of Gods

Campo Santo—the studio behind the contemplative forest experience Firewatch—is swapping tinder-dry trees and Wyoming fire lookout towers for ancient Egyptian tombs and early cinematography in its next game, In the Valley of Gods. Its announcement trailer offered a glimpse of a first-person adventure set deep in the Egyptian desert of the ’20s. You and a partner scramble through stunning ruined spaces before setting up a shot for your beautifully animated film camera.

The duo, as studio cofounders Sean Vanaman and Jake Rodkin tell me, are Rashida and Zora—filmmakers whose careers have hit the skids. The women are using their last chance at resources to try to make a hit documentary.

But a documentary must have a subject, and thus Rashida and Zora have decided to investigate the rumour that an obscure archaeologist has discovered the tomb of Nefertiti. “They’re determined to be the ones who make the movie about its discovery,” explains Rodkin.

“Yeah, they’re going to be there with cameras rolling when he discovers this tomb,” says Vanaman. “In the world which we occupy, which is the world the characters occupy, [Nefertiti’s burial place] is one of the last great unfound things. There’s a lot of rumour and archaeological speculation that perhaps it was found but not really identified because it didn’t have the scope and grandeur one would associate with someone as prolific as Nefertiti, or it’s still out there, or, or, or, or…”
Sounds interesting!

Yet another game I cannot play. So tired of every interesting game being in FPP.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we didn't feel like we had to perform to receive love & recognition?

This looks super interesting, and I'm actually a fan of the FPP, I think it definitely makes it more immersive. There's no HUD or game markers, which might just be for the cinematic, but would be cool if that was actually in the game. I like games not reminding us that they are games.

Will definitely keep an eye out for this one.

I see that Firewatch is coming out for the Switch soon also.

Thanks for making a thread about it, I wasn't aware about this game until now. It looks really good.
