Physical photographs aren't the only way Firewatch will invade the real world. Developer Campo Santo recently revealed a partnership with production house Good Universe (Neighbors and Last Vegas) to make a movie based on the indie game about a fire lookout in a Wyoming forest, according to The Hollywood Reporter. No other details are available at the time, but fingers crossed that some enterprising Ford dealership doesn't repurpose the movie's eventual trailer for a summer sales event.

Miss the game when it came out earlier this year on PlayStation 4 and PC? If the reason was because you only have an Xbox One, well, now you can fix that as the game graced Microsoft's console last week -- replete with a temporarily exclusive free-roam mode.
