Firewatch Devs Announce “In the Valley of Gods” for PC, Mac, and Linux

Campo Santo Productions, the studio behind Firewatch, have announced their next game.

The new title is In the Valley of Gods, and it’s coming to PC, Mac, and Linux sometime in 2019. Featured above, you can view the debut trailer for the Egyptian first-person adventure game.

Here are the first screenshots:

Here’s a rundown on the game:

A single-player, first-person adventure set deep in the desert of Egypt.

From the team that brought you Firewatch, In the Valley of Gods is a sprawling narrative experience in remote, 1920’s Egypt. You are Rashida, a disgraced former explorer and filmmaker given one last shot at the adventurous life you desperately miss. Somewhere, beyond the endless miles of dunes, ruins, and tombs lies an incredible archaeological discovery—but it can’t be found without the help of Zora, the former partner you vowed never to work with again.

While In the Valley of Gods is currently in development and has no firm release date, for now you can peruse its Steam page.

    Only because Japanese devs black women don’t look like real black women at all or they would be fugly too. Japenese think this is what black women look like: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4717e8a76e12dc54d647bdec39cc8db835281268670184991905087517877077.jpg

    Better keep it that way. Or they just make a shiny dark chocolate black woman and that is nasty. Tho that is the extreme side in Eroge characters.

  • Rastaanparta

    To be fair, that’s just an edit of Reimu. It’s somewhat common to do these color swaps for anime and video game characters.

    You can tell when they draw a black woman, because the hair will not be straight, and/or the lips are more pronounced. Their black characters are quite commonly in minstral getup.

    Goddamn it, that has to be the most racist trailer I’ve ever seen. Way to perpetuate stereotypes you fuckin’ douchebag devs.

  • EuphoricShadow

    For a site that’s all about niche gaming and everything unique, most of you seem pretty simple minded. Kinda suprised that the moderators/creators behind this website are letting all these comments slide. I’m willing to guess the majority of you have never experienced talking to a black person before.

    Either way this game looks pretty cool and I’m really digging the music. Trailer-wise it had more of a story to tell than Death Stranding did at the Game Awards lol.

  • Espio419

    That’s because Japanese cartoon characters are drawn like Caucasians.

  • EuphoricShadow

    At least you’re not afraid to admit that you’re a racist. You do you I guess.

  • EuphoricShadow

    ??? What? I’m black and I didn’t get a single hint of a stereotype from this trailer :S

  • Bitterbear

    So.. You find out at the end of the game that Nefertiti is a lesbian and that she was killed by the only white man in Egypt because she invented Socialism before Karl Marx?

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    > I’m willing to guess the majority of you have never experienced talking to a black person before.
    Clearly you haven’t if you think that trash is believable.

    Also this place has no thought policing, and that applies to both sides of the coin. If you want people to delete comments out of the butthurt for criticizing this game, go to Gematsu or Kotaku.

  • So that’s why they were soooo triggered by Pewdipie. Hahaha, Campo Santo that’s just ugly.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Uhm. I am black lol. History is extremely racist and biased, there’s many notable people in the past who were black and discovered or created amazing things. This game is obviously completely fictional and I don’t see why people are getting mad about it. Getting annoyed because we’re finally starting to see more diverse lead characters is pretty pathetic dude.

    Freedom of speech doesn’t mean you should go nuts and spread hatred.

  • mewnani

    Dude I work for a black lady, and she’s got more character in her pinky finger than you do in your whole body. Think twice before implying we’re all racist neo-Nazis. None of us have issues with well written characters, black or otherwise. It’s when they’re poorly written mockeries of what an SJW think a black person is that we have a problem with them.

  • EuphoricShadow

    I’m not implying that people are racist on here. I know for sure that people are racist on this site. I’m not sure about you but I’m seeing openly racist comments on this article. What has an indvidual got to do with a video game character which we know very little of? Are you generalising that all black women act that way? Judging by most of the comments here there is some kind of white supremacy shit going on.

    It’s a little suprising and ironic, considering how this site is that’s supposed to celebrate everything unique and original. I guess there’s a limit of what kind of things people can accept on here. Sure you may be okay with black protagonists but clearly most others aren’t.

  • SevTheBear

    What do you mean?

  • SevTheBear

    I think we have a troll. Don’t waste you time on that.

  • EroBotan

    no lol, if you want to see how caucasians looks like you check western cartoons lol,

  • SevTheBear

    No one is getting mad about it. You are the one calling a website and it’s user base for racists for no reason other that you don’t like that every comment you deem “offensive” doesn’t get deleted. Should your comments be deleted because a few people here don’t like it? No. You have the right to write your opinion, as long as you stay within the rules of the comment section of this website. As *Shiggy Diggy Doo* said, if you wish for thought policing, this ain’t the website for you. Or maybe you are just a troll having a field day.

    By the way. Freedom of Speech means that someone’s right to say something. A person may have to suffer consequences for saying some things, but they still have the right to say them. But if you love the idea of 1984, then good for you.

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

  • DynastyStar

    KANGZ

  • DynastyStar

    Implying all black women think the same. I think there’s a word for that

  • EuphoricShadow

    I’m not asking for negative comments to be deleted. I’m curious as to why hate comments aren’t being deleted. Do you feel like hate speech should be accepted in every form of society? Cuz if that’s the case you’re probably chill with hate preachers from terrorist organisations.

    There’s a clear difference between freedom of speech/voicing your opinions and spreading hate propaganda, dude. Let’s not play games here or beat around the bush. Because quite frankly I’m getting a straw man vibe from you. Having a community with little to no restrictions on what people can say will easily backfire in my opinion. Especially if someone comes out and exposes people for what they really are.

    So ironic. Most of you guys are defending the racist comments on here, saying all this “freedom of speech” crap… and yet I bet the very same commenters went all up in arms when the racist guy who used to work at Bioware went on his “I hate white people” tantrum. A paradox if you ask me.

  • So you’re not for free speech. Got it.

  • EuphoricShadow

    I am. I just don’t accept hate speech. It leads to brainwashing and violence. Guess you’re cool with that.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Excuse me?

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    I’m generalizing and yet you keep calling the entire fucking website racist?
    Whatever, you made it clear that you’re a piece of shit that doesn’t even know what racism is.

  • Gematsu used to be okay didn’t they? Didn’t realize they fell to the cancer of SJWism.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Did I say everyone was racist? Please find quote where I even said that? The closest I said to it was “everyone is complaining for their own reasons”. And by that you know I don’t every single individual, but the vast majority of comments are obviously negative.

    Stop getting emotional just because I’m pointing out flaws in some of the people on here. Racism comes in all kinds of forms, not all of it has to be direct and obvious. Anyways you do you.

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    They haven’t been okay for like 4 years now. I noticed it when I got banned for not sucking Sony’s dick.

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    > Please find quote where I even said that.
    Don’t even need to look now because

    >And by that you know I don’t every single individual, but the vast majority of comments are obviously negative.

    >Racism comes in all kinds of forms, not all of it has to be direct and obvious.

    You already did it fucking again and you didn’t even realize it. Are you so goddamn used to slinging around the word around that it comes as an instinct without even thinking about it? Isn’t that the point where you have to think that you might be overdoing it?

  • EuphoricShadow

    Lol so you took two different sentences that aren’t related to one another and decided to connect the two. Cool. I guess the term “covert racist” doesn’t mean anything to you.

    Perhaps I should be more clear. Comments on here such as “*looks at the article’s header image* I think I hate this game already.” seems like a clear indictation that the person was trying their hardest not to say some offensive things. People can be racist, sexist or even homophobic and never have to say anything directly offensive. “WE WUZ KANGZ” is another racist comment but I don’t really find that shit offensive, just childish lol. Stop being a straw man like the other guy who has been messaging me.

  • OldPalpy

    These are the guys who brought on Anita as a guest on their podcast in 2014 nothing they do is surprising at this point.

  • David Curry

    They managed to one-up that hideous Uncharted Lost Legacy cover art.

  • David Curry

    Read all the comments here. As of this writing, all the comments are directed at the mess of polygons and textures and maps modeled to look like a black woman in a video game (and the trend of ugly black women with afros in video games, by Western devs that insist on going overboard with ethnic caricatures in their “diversity” agendas). Nothing about actual black women.

  • Chocolate ISISCream

    They’re also gross.

  • Bitterbear

    Bitch, hate speech is free speech. Unless, of course, you live outside the Unites States of America, where hurt feefees -specially the ones belonging to those who can get a fabulous tan-
    are moar important.

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    > Stop being a straw man
    You mean like the guy who said he didn’t like the game based on the header image? The game’s art is fucking ugly and your takeaway from it is that he’s racist?

  • EuphoricShadow

    I have read all the comments already, I wouldn’t have been making my points if I didn’t read them. At this point I’m just repeating myself, I explained everything just moments ago. Sure complaining about how characters look is one thing but I seriously don’t see anything wrong with the way she’s designed. The main character has conventional black features, most black women have naturally curly hair. If that’s ugly to most people then maybe they gotta lay off whatever it is that makes them perceive how all women should look in any kind of story driven game. The caricatures you mentioned is the artstyle. I don’t get issue there.

    I don’t know about all this leftist trend, but if I see something which clearly feels like it’s pandering just for the sake of getting people to notice and argue then I’m not interested in that product. Right now I’m just seeing an interesting concept that’s a long way from releasing. I don’t have time to care about how a character looks to be honest. Unless they go borderline offensive of course.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Oh you’re right, we should be more open minded and let people say what they want. A shame the Bioware guy didn’t get the love he deserved when he was expressing his hate towards a specific demographic. If I can recall people wanted him to step down from his position and leave the company. Double standards much? :P

  • EuphoricShadow

    And yet look at the state America is in right now. So much tension is going on there because people can’t learn to cooperate. Instead they resort to bashing others who don’t think on the same page. If hate speech is free speech then why did people want the dude from Bioware to step down and leave the company so much? That’s kinda policing isn’t it? I thought free speech means people can say whatever they want and can get away with it?

    Anyways, I’m only asking for the same thing which a lot of gamers asked for when they wanted that guy to leave. It’s to have a less toxic community so that people like myself can feel more welcome around here. Seems like that’s a lot to ask.

  • David Curry

    Well, to me the character looks like this
    http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/265/249/2b4.jpg
    That looks less like an artstyle and more like an image that Western vg devs want to broadcast. Not all or most black women who either live in Africa or have African ancestry look like that.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Geez take a pill or something. And that’s based on your opinion. Judging by most of the comments it seems like a lot of people are on the same page, but however you wanna perceive the context, dude.

  • Matz

    So you mean that I can’t give a opinion because there’s not a single African-American where I live (Northwestern Mexico) to have a conversation?

    As a “minority” I can still get why so many people are complaining about all the pandering these devs are doing with this game, if there’s something that I hate as a Mexican is when the entertainment industry (Movies, TV Shows, Videogames, etc) put a generic Latino guy with brown skin, big mustache and mixing spanish words with english because they want to pander to Latino audiences, and let’s not talk about white people getting offended on my behalf

    Also I think this site is good as it is, I’m not gonna complain because some people think or have a different opinion than me, if I don’t like what somebody says I just let it slide and not make a drama or call the mods to delete some comments

  • EuphoricShadow

    Not in the modern era no. I’ll give you credit for that. But three of those four games are set many decades in the past where those hair styles were very common. Even white folks were adopting that look haha. It may be my taste but I very much like the Beyond Good and Evil 2’s character design, she has a very memorable look to her :P

    But yeah fair enough, it would be nice to see some more varied hairstyles in the future for additional black female characters. I’m sure there have been some without the afro look in recent years but I can’t be arsed to look for it right now.

  • Ace

    Oh hey. Another walking simulator. s

  • David Curry

    Africa is a very big continent, and there was never “one look” in the past or present. Anyway.

  • EuphoricShadow

    I never said that. People can say whatever they like, I don’t care. But when it comes to name calling that’s when it starts to go a little too far. It’s easy to assume that these folks have had very little interaction with people of other ethnic groups if they find it humourous to say derogatory things. I already made my points about the stereotypes, that I can understand. But I’m not seeing any stereotypes here on this game, at least not yet.

    Well everyone handles things differently, it’s almost impossible for someone like myself to get offended anyway, thankfully. But I still don’t approve hate comments because all it does is spread toxic behaviours, which then leads into more problems. But aight, not much else I can do at this point, people don’t wish to be “policed”, I’ll just let em be :P

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    >It’s to have a less toxic community so that people like myself can feel more welcome around here.
    You ARE welcome here if don’t call for deleting comments you don’t agree with. You are a fucking idiot if you think we’re gonna form a lynch mob to chase you out, if we do that sort of thing that Nintendo fanboy Travis would’ve been out of year a long time ago, but we don’t do that and you wanna know why? We don’t stifle free speech, we either call you a retard or have a discourse and move on. We don’t turn the site into a gigantic inter-article civil war calling for the annihilation of sections of the comments because they hurt your nuclear level feelings. So either get with the program that all speech will get accepted here or fuck off because we’re not a place to hold your hand.

  • EuphoricShadow

    I had African Americans in my mind the whole time. Wasn’t clear enough. Most of those communities kinda roled with similar hairstyles in the past.

  • Bitterbear

    And? I don’t buy Bioware games, I’m of a weeb gamer.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Lol I am welcome and then you continue to insult me. Calm down buddy. It’s the reason why most people can’t get along, cuz of people like you who can’t control their nerves. I have my right to say whatever I feel like. Cursing and insulting others for having a different opinion isn’t gonna bode well for you in life. That being said… I still think people on here need to be censored for using derogatory terms against other individuals :P I don’t really get why that’s a problem these days. Pretty sure most policies everywhere have agreed on that standards for many years. Perhaps that’s the way niche gamers role.

  • Bitterbear

    This is what happens when one side is in control for too long. The same nannying, overly outraged behaviour that was exhibited at the end of the 1980s by the Republicans is now present on the Democrats.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Fair play. I’ll give you an upvote since I’m in a good mood.

  • Bitterbear

    These developers have an unhealthy obession with retro stereotypes. The foul-mouthed, sassy black woman with a ‘fro trope can be traced back to Pam Grier’s as Foxy brown from the early 1970s:

    https://images.gr-assets.com/hostedimages/1477520380ra/20960858.gif

    This new and improved one seems like a ripoff of the character Hillary Banks from the The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air sitcom:

    https://i.imgur.com/6CJ5g6b.jpg

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    Yes it’s the way niche gamer “roles”, get over it. Nothing you’ll say will change and if you don’t like it, just leave if you have no intention to jive with it.

  • Anon_Amous

    Touché but I still think VoG is less compelling marginally.

  • EuphoricShadow

    I get what you’re saying and now I’m starting to understand where some of you are coming from, but everyone is pointing this out and yet we have no idea what this character for this game will play out like. Even for that one character in Beyond Good & Evil 2. I don’t care as much for some of the games that that have come out recently because those characters are based on trends of those past eras. In the Valley of Gods is set in the 1920s so obviously we’re bound to expect a black female to have curly hair.

  • entropy

    You can say whatever you feel like, but other people should be censored.

    Maybe the racists are right.

  • We don’t police speech here lol

  • After the Pewdiepie thing, I ain’t really feeling Firewatch.

    I also remember they also shmoozed it up publicly via virtue signaling with a certain controversial feminist icon whose name i’m not mentioning for obvious reasons.

  • Riosine

    That is because Hstory don’t record Discoveries or engineering, but totally unintereting things like politics and kings. It only got fun when Napoleon started killing them.but then it went back to the same boring stuff afterward

  • buddyluv324

    Honestly you’re not fooling anyone. You came into the site making passive-aggressive remarks on the users here and YOU wanna play victim? Sorry, but that’s not how it works. The mods wont be playing mommy and daddy to break up any sort of bickering. If you cant even make a good argument without passing insults and loosing your cool over a game that people seem to not like, then you already lost the moment you posted up your first post on the subject. You’re better off going to ResetEra if you looking for someone to coddle you.

  • mewnani

    Well I don’t see anyone whining about actual good minority characters like Barret Wallace from FFVII or Olivia from Pokemon Sun and Moon. Just because people make racist jokes doesn’t mean they’re all KKK-black haters. Maybe they just hate stereotypes. Personally I’d like it a lot better if they actually bothered to make a minority character that wasn’t a stereotypical pile of tropes entitled white developers assume a person of color would be, like Riri Williams.

    WTF are you smoking? Chill with hate preachers from terrorist organisations? Okay, either you are trolling big time or have lost your freaking mind xD

    Reading your comments is like reading them twits from twitter and hearing the news from ABC. Even a little CNN in the. How about you show some of the evil racist evidence from this website and plz, don’t used obvious troll comments. But let’s be honest here buddy. You didn’t come to this website to read gaming news. You here to whine about the website ain’t working the way YOU want it to. I hear and read dumb shit every week and I also wonder why people would say or do that kind of stuff. Does it sometime pis me off? Sure. But like me and you, they have the right to do it. One should not go to some websites if they don’t like the idea of Freedom of Speech. Again, If you want Limit of Speech, find a another website. Or you could even try to contact the moderators of the website and show them the comments YOU deem “offensive” instead of going on a rant (I am doing one now I know) here in the comment section of a news post on a game.

    Ah yes Manveer Heir, he made a name for himself. People would have been just a pissed if he had said it about Asians or Blacks. He acted like a dick and posted it online and got the finger from a lot of people. He had the right to do it, but also got hit by consequence of it.

    They just borrow from their surroundings as a reference frame.

    We know it’s not Hope.

    I don’t know man. All I know is that a lot of gamers are weird lol. Well I haven’t really played either of those games (I started with FFVIII) and they’re either really old titles or ones that aren’t in the AAA standards which western devs make. So characters from Pokemon titles would obviously be unheard of for the vast majority of gamers out there.

  • EuphoricShadow

    By saying I’m not feeling welcome here is not my attempt of trying to convince people that I’m some kind of victim. The kind of behaviours I’m seeing here is totally abnormal to me but whatever floats your boat. I’m more inclined to use Disqus since I can just get news feeds from a bunch of sites in a more convenient way. I’m not usually that active on community sites so forums aren’t my thing.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Hard to tell if you were being sarcastic or if I’m missing some joke here but I’ll take it as a serious point. I don’t really side with any political groups honestly. But I do see certain valid points that can come from both the left and right wing. But for the most part there can be a lot of things I disagree with on both sides.

  • EuphoricShadow

    LOL dude not once have I ever felt anything by reading all the racist comments on here xD I don’t cry or start going into a tantrum because someone is using foul language or throws some derogatory term towards me. Personally that shit doesn’t affect me. But I’m speaking on behalf of people who wish to visit websites, especially ones that focuses on the smaller titles like this one, and not have to deal with people typing some weird borderline shit in the comments section.

    Like I said moments ago, that behaviour is alienating to me so I don’t know what the heck people are getting at when they’re saying things like “nigger” or “negroid”. Clearly I’m not an active member when it comes to this site, only discovered this like months ago. Either way I kinda got the gist after talking to some of the folks on here, so my concerns are somewhat diminished.

    Well to be fair the American people hold a very different set of value compared to the rest of the world. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I see things very differently from you and everyone else. My point was that freedom of speech should benefit those people too, so I guess their voices should be given a chance also. Especially when they make threats and all that lol.

    I don’t know, both left wing and right wing people are so clingy when it comes to values and traits (obviously they’re important matters but man, people get so defensive and emotional about it) it’s almost embarassing to witness it if I gotta be frank. It’s the same thing with left wing people and them trying to push their agendas for the whole world to accept.

  • EuphoricShadow

    I’ve already said it multiple times. I don’t care if people have harsh criticism about something or if they wish to go all political and stuff. Those things don’t matter to me. I just don’t see the purpose of racist comments existing. I didn’t see the point of Manveer Heir going into his rants and quite frankly I kinda wish he got fired the moment he started that crap. It’s so weird to see people defend his right to say it and yet bash him for it. Seems so contradictory, most likely an American thing. But like I said before, whatever floats your boat.

  • SevTheBear

    I get what you are trying to say. I don’t like racist comments either. But if people want to make an ass of themselves by doing so like Manveer, they better be ready for people calling them out for it. But one must also understand that some of the people who write these comments are trolls who only wish to piss people off.

  • SevTheBear

    Propaganda and agendas will always be here. It will never go away as longs intelligent life exists. A paradises world on this earth is a very unrealistic goal

  • buddyluv324

    Dude, you were the one that made yourself not feel welcome. Did you honestly expect people will just treat you like a princess if you pop up to cause drama? Seriously, grow up.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Fair enough. I see where most of you are coming from now, it’s only the first few comments I read which seemed so out of context for me. Which lead me to believe that people were taking the initiative to act out some of their immoral behaviours. I guess I was in the wrong for assuming and criticising most of the people on here lol

  • EuphoricShadow

    Believe me, coming from a religious background I know that there’ll never be a perfect world. But I was only acting upon my moral instinct of what I perceive is right and wrong. Has nothing to do with the stuff happening in politics since I don’t tune into the news all that often. I just feel that by allowing people to say whatever the heck they wanna say it can lead into problems later in life. Extremism happens because people can freely chant whatever they want. And in the end others have to suffer for it. Of course it’s not as dramatic when we’re talking about the gaming community though haha.

  • EuphoricShadow

    Lol chill. Maybe you should read my more recent comments to realise that I’ve taken other people’s point of views into consideration. I’m not expecting some kind of special treatment for anyone, quite the contrary. Was expecting everyone to be placed on an even playing field. But like I said I’m starting to see where everyone is coming from, even though I still don’t agree 100%. But I kinda get it.

  • Zack Attack

    XD

  • EroBotan

    totally agree!!

  • SevTheBear

    I know all about jump the gun ;) People here can use harsh words here on website. But for as long as I have known and used this site, I have never encountered everyday users who seem mean or evil. Some might have opinions I might think is a bit out there. But other than that, people here are nice :)

  • SevTheBear

    Many here on the site fully understand the passion for gaming and the fear of loud and sometime dumb opinions getting the better of people. Just take the whole GameGate thing and the rise of feminist grip on the Western gaming industry. That is something the gaming community is fighting hard to deal with. Well if you wanna see real drama in the gaming community the PC hardware forums a good place to start xD

    Meh, I think Rick & Morty might at least be good for a laugh or two, but maybe my IQ is just too high.

  • Gustavo Hawke

    I don’t like Pewediwpie but these devs are the people who censored him of making gameplays right?
    Also, western sjw’s think all woman have to be ugly.

  • Bribri

    Well the credits in firewatch included a special thank you to no other than Anita Sarkeesian. Take what you will from that.
