Valve buys Campo Santo 21 Apr, 2018 / 5 comments

After a savage bidding war (Mojo offered a Planet Threepwood coupon and a bloody molar), Valve ultimately won out and has officially acquired Firewatch developer Campo Santo, it's been announced. The vaunted, twelve-person studio will relocate to Bellevue, Washington where they will continue to make In the Valley of Gods and swat away attempts by their new neighbor Remi to gain access for exclusives.

Though we don't know what to make of this news, we congratulate these hardworking virtuosi (and Jake) for selling out securing a future with what look to be ideal partners. We anticipate it will be a future glittered with many golden trophies. Or it will turn out like Humongous. Either way!

    I first thought: "Great for them, and probably us".

    Then I've remembered the following:

    Meanwhile, Mojo’s hostile bid for Idle Thumbs is moving forward.

    (There is also no way I will make the 45 minute drive to Bellevue without a solid per diem.)

    Maybe they can get Jake to look at Steam while they're at it.
