67: Firewatch (Indie Game Edition)

If we've learned anything over the last few episodes, it's that video games aren't all Calls of Duty and Super Marios anymore. Case in point: this week's game, Firewatch, in which you play as a guy who takes a summer job in the National Parks Service, watching for forest fires. Okay, okay, so it's a lot more interesting than it sounds. In addition to the abundance of natural beauty, you'll explore hidden caves, encounter shadowy figures, and investigate a streak of missing persons. Yeah, turns out life off the grid can get pretty suspenseful! Who knew? Eric and Marcus sure didn't! So check out this third and final episode in our indie game series and find out what else you don't know about the wilderness!
