Things people missed in Firewatch

9 Forrest 64

Firewatch: Henry holds the Forrest 64 Cart

If you haven’t played the Switch version of Firewatch you’ll never have a chance to stumble across this one. However, there is a hidden platformer in Firewatch called Forrest 64. It’s not a particularly intensive game, but it is a fun little game.

Given the Firewatch timeline and the fact that you play the game on a console carved out of stone, it’s hard to imagine that Forrest 64 exists in this world that is canon. Still, it’s at least an interesting curiosity.


8 Racoon encounters the third type

Firewatch: A raccoon jumps at a scared Henry

Chances are you’ve encountered the raccoon that Delilah was scared to run away in the forest. What you might have missed, though, is a raccoon (we’d like to believe it’s a lookalike) that can then return the favor.

This involved finding an old burned-out log cabin, perilously perched on the edge of a cliff, and opening the furnace door. If you do this at the right time, you will be greeted by this charming, hairy monster. This is just another example of all the fun little interactions that go into this game that is not only impossible to ignore, but hard to find in the first place.

There are a few nods to other games in Firewatch. You can find a shirt from Eastern Colorado University, a fictional institution that exists in Our Last One series. In addition, the Mark of the Word Hunter Bloodborne carved into a tree. However, having a copy of The Accidental Savior in Firewatch feels like a more substantial connection to Came home than other Easter eggs.

For those who haven’t played Gone Home, the protagonist’s father, Terrence L. Greenbriar, wrote The Accidental Savior. Several copies can be found around the Gone Home house (all of which have the same cover as the one found in the Firewatch). Maybe the book is just a loving tribute to one of the giants of the walking simulator, but it doesn’t seem like an exaggeration to say that two games can exist in the same world. This won’t really affect anything in either game, but it To be succinct.

5 Turt Reynolds

Life in the observation tower can be lonely, but you don’t have to be alone. One thing that many players have missed is that you can find an adorable little turtle. You can optionally name it Turt Reynolds or Shelly Duvall and of course, finding a turtle opens up a dialogue with Delilah.

Traces is a beautiful little sound number that can stay in your head. If you don’t want to replay the game, the track is on Spotify,
