Laramie, Wyo. • Two former Wyoming residents have created a videogame that centers around a park ranger stationed in a watchtower in the Shoshone National Forest wilderness with plot and dialogue based on real places within the state.
"Firewatch" is the first video game to be released by a small game developer in San Francisco called Campo Santo. The game is the creation of designer and programmer Nels Anderson and designer and writer Sean Vanaman. They hope to release it in mid-2015.
Anderson was born and raised in Jackson. Vanaman spent some of his youth in Cody. Their experience includes work on big-name video games like "The Walking Dead" and "Mark of the Ninja."
