Our lawyers would like to point out that our use of the word ‘stolen’ is playful hyperbole, but we’d also like to point out the Firewatch logo came first.

*Our lawyers would like to point out that our use of the word ‘stolen’ is playful hyperbole… but we’d also like to point out that the Firewatch logo did in fact come first.

For reference: Firewatch (including that Olly Moss artwork) was announced March 2014, whereas Gillette Proshield was announced November 2015.


Read our Firewatch review – it’s pretty great. The game, not the review.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
