- Follow the Leader: The game is pretty open with having been heavily influenced by Gone Home, in regards to the gameplay and even certain basic structures of the plot and how it progresses. The game even includes a few Shout Outs to Gone Home, including a book that was an item in Gone Home also being an item in Firewatch.
- Model Dissonance: The game averts First-Person Ghost by showing your hands and body, but looking at the player model in third person reveals over-sized hands and under-sized legs to improve perspective.
- Relationship Voice Actor: Erin Yvette and Nikki Rapp voice the two teenagers at the lake, while Cissy Jones voices Delilah. All three have previously voiced characters in Telltale games, including The Walking Dead.
