Somber literary drama Firewatch is getting a vinyl release for its excellent soundtrack.

1

The game's music was composed by Chris Remo, who also wrote the soundtracks for Gone Home and Thirty Flights of Loving (and was an associate producer on BioShock Infinite before that).

Purchasing this retail album also grants players access to its digital counterpart, be it MP3's or FLACs via both Bandcamp and Steam.

The full $25 (about £20) caboodle includes the 160g 33 RPM 12" vinyl album, an extra thick casewrapped jacket, and a black innersleeve.

Conversely, you can buy just the digital version for $6 (about £5) on Bandcamp.

The vinyl soundtrack will begin shipping on 1st December.

Speaking of Firewatch's melancholy music, Steam now has its own community awards with one of the categories being an "I'm Not Crying, There's Something In My Eye" Award. Then again, That Dragon, Cancer also came out this year, so competition is stiff for the year's weepiest game.
