Everything in this website is very simple: very basic navigation and menu hover effects, a couple of images and videos scattered along the website, award badges making clear that this is a winner in the video games market and some context about the story. But what makes this website stand out is the main banner.
"Firewatch is a mystery set in the Wyoming wilderness, where your only emotional lifeline is the person on the other end of a handheld radio." This is exactly what you get when you first enter this website: a beautiful layered illustration of the Wyoming mountains that enables the designers to shine with the use of parallax. This is actually very much in tune with the game's atmosphere, which led to some of the biggest reviewers of this type of video games to consider it one of the most incredible games to play in terms of surroundings portrayal. I don't play video games myself, but looking at the cinematics I am truly gobsmacked but these illustrator's awe-inspiring work.
Firewatch is an amazing website design in the E-commerce & Retail, Entertainment and Sports & Leisure industries.
