Valve has acquired Campo Santo, known for the outdoor exploration game Firewatch, the developer announced late Saturday. The 12-person team will relocate to Valve's Bellevue, Washington headquarters as it continues work on In the Valley of the Gods, a search for treasure in an Egyptian desert.
"In Valve we found a group of folks who, to their core, feel the same way about the work that they do (this, you may be surprised to learn, doesn’t happen every day)," Campo Santo wrote in its announcement post. "In us, they found a group with unique experience and valuable, diverse perspectives. It quickly became an obvious match."
Campo Santo went on to say that the decision came after "a series of long conversations" about values and "how, when you get right down to it, we, as human beings, are hard-limited by the time we have left when it comes to making the things we care about and believe in."
Most everyone reading this story will probably know that a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched on Wednesday carrying a NASA spacecraft into orbit—the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite—that will further the space agency's mission of searching for exoplanets.
Less well known is the TESS spacecraft's clever orbit, which will enable an on-a-budget but robust science mission of searching for planets transiting in front of nearby stars. This "lunar resonant" orbit, which has never been used by a spacecraft, will allow TESS to both observe nearby stars and transmit data back to Earth with a minimal energy expenditure. (The useful lifetime of a spacecraft is often determined by its amount of onboard propellant).
