Announced in 2017, In the Valley of Gods was planned as developer Campo Santo’s follow-up to their acclaimed 2016 debut, Firewatch. Set in a remote valley in the Egyptian desert, In the Valley of Gods looked to build upon many of the elements that made Firewatch a hit: a compelling mystery populated with interesting characters, all taking place in a beautiful, isolated locale that the player is free to explore and admire at their own pace.

However, when Campo Santo was acquired by Valve in 2018, many fans feared for the future of the project. It appeared their fears were well-founded when, in December last year, it was announced that development of In the Valley of Gods had been put on indefinite hiatus while the team went to work on some of Valve’s other projects, including Half-Life: Alyx.
