Firewatch’s In-Game Camera Lets You Develop Tangible Photos

Launching today, the word surrounding Campo Santo’s story driven adventure has caught like wildfire, and the mysterious ambiguity of Firewatch’s environments already seems to be sparking questions. Something that has been confirmed, however, is that a disposable camera you find in Firewatch’s PC version lets you develop its photos in real life.

According to Techno Buffalo, you find the in-game camera in the forest, and can use it to capture your surroundings. Upon completing the game, you’ll be given a link to buy physical prints of the photos you took.

Perhaps one of the most interesting things about the retrievable camera is that it already contains pictures before you encounter it. These can also be developed in real life – but for a price.


A price for these photos has not been confirmed yet, though Techno Buffalo have reported the cost was “heavily discounted” before the game’s release.

Firewatch is out today for PlayStation 4, PC, Mac and Linux.
