I am extremely excited to see how this game plays when it's released. It doesn't look like they have a date set yet, but when they do we will let you know.

About
In Firewatch you play as a man named Henry who has retreated from his messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched high atop a mountain, it’s your job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe. An especially hot and dry summer has everyone on edge. Your supervisor, a woman named Delilah, is available to you at all times over a small, handheld radio — and is your only contact with the world you've left behind.

But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the world, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making interpersonal choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Very stylish look indeed, love the artwork.
Also, it sounds like they use good voice actors - that's not to be taken for granted from indie productions either.

I watched the trailer the other day and I agree that it looks very promising. I'm not surprised though given all the talented people they've brought on board from popular indie developers like Double Fine, Telltale Games, Klei and others.

Watching the trailer, I have no clue what this game is about. But I agree, the artwork looks fantastic! And, quite to my surprise, so is the voice acting.

I'll keep and eye out for this title.

Hoping that Walkin Dead get its feet on Linux way!

My interest is piqued but I wish they would've teased it a bit more; nothing warranting much curiosity occurred on screen, save for a guy messing about in the woods. However, I'm hoping for the best, because Gone Home left a narrative itch that no other games have been scratching lately.

I'm really looking forward to this ^_^

For anybody who's intersted, there's an archive of their PAX panel here.
