Campo Santo Wants to Release Firewatch Physically But Has to Wait for the Right Opportunity
Campo Santo’s adventure title, Firewatch, was released digitally back in February and became a sales success fairly quickly, but a physical release could potentially help boost those figures even further. Composer Chris Remo has revealed that people have asked for a boxed version “a lot” and the developer wants to go for it but the right opportunity has to present itself for that to happen. Speaking to MCV UK, Remo explained:
We love making physical things for sure. And people have asked us about a boxed version a lot. We’d like to do it, but it’s a matter of the right situation presenting itself or us just finding the time and resource to do it. It’s probably mainly a logistical issue.
We don’t have any specific plans for it at this point. But if the right way to do it comes along or if we have some crazy idea that we talk ourselves into as described with the photo thing, that would probably increase the likelihood of it happening.
Earlier this year, publisher Panic revealed that it was able to recoup its investment into Firewatch within a day.
