One version of Firewatch, the hotly anticipated game that’s already getting rave reviews, comes with the option for an insanely inventive physical souvenir.
In the game, there’s a disposable camera you find in the woods. You can snap photos with it and, if you’re playing on PC, you can send the virtual roll off to be “developed” and have physical copies mailed to you.
Having your photos printed and shipped costs $15 (about 10, AU$21), but it’s a really cool idea and one that, for me, takes me back to harmonizes with being in the words. Camping as a kid, I always took a disposable camera with me.
The photos are sent to you by fictional photo company Fotodome and come in an envelope. There are already some images on the in-game camera, according to Polygon, which could spoil some of the game, but fortunately you can’t see those images on the roll of pics you take, though they are sent to you.
The printable photo feature is only available on PC, but Firewatch’s developers said they want to bring it to the console. The team is looking into making it happen on PS4, and Sony is keen to have it, too.
Firewatch goes on sale tomorrow for $19.99 on Steam and PlayStation Store.
