In The Valley of Gods†

In the Valley of Gods, the next game from Firewatch creator Campo Santo, was announced tonight during The Game Awards. It is scheduled for a 2019 release.

The single-player, first-person adventure game is set in Egypt in the 1920s. Players 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 game’s newly revealed Steam entry, players 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.”

In the announcement trailer, players work together with an AI-controlled partner to move a satchel into and through an ancient ruin with the goal of capturing a beautiful sunrise as it passes through a colonnade. The bluesy, pop-infused soundtrack was in stark contrast to the game’s 1920s-era, analog tech. Campo Santo said that the game is expected to release on Mac, Linux and Windows PCs.
