A surprising reveal at The Game Awards in the best possibly way, talented developer Campo Santo have announced their next game, In the Valley of Gods.
The game is set in Egypt in the 1920s. You will take on the role of an explorer and filmmaker who is looking to uncover a “seemingly-impossible discovery and an incredible film.”
According to the games Steam entry that went up today, you will “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.”
Their last title, Firewatch, was one of our absolute favourite games last year, featuring a captivating story and confident writing style that was both comical and emotional at different points. Where Firewatch had you essentially playing without interacting with other characters, In the Valley of the Gods clearly takes a different approach, with another character alongside you.
In the Valley of Gods is set for release sometime in 2018 and we can’t wait to find out more. It’s so far set for release on Mac, Linux and Windows PCs. You can track the development of the game on Campo Santo’s blog here.
