Campo Santo's walking simulator Firewatch is now out on the Switch. If you needed an extra incentive to pick up this particular version of the game, it's been discovered there's a special Nintendo 64 easter egg hidden deep within the forest. Obviously, if you intend to play the game, we recommend you click away now to avoid any spoilers.

At a certain point in your adventure, your character will stumble upon a supply cache. To unlock it you'll have to input a code ending in 64. Doing this unlocks a virtual title called 'Forrest 64' - which can actually be played by placing the old school cartridge next to a statue in the game. When you do this, it allows you to access a platform-style title reminiscent of Banjo-Kazooie, where you have to go around collecting items, escaping from enemies and even participating in timed races. The fun begins around the 7:30 mark in the below video:

To some, this might look more exciting than the actual game. What do you think of it - does it make you want to play Firewatch, or have you already picked it up? Would you like to see Campo Santo create its own platform game? Tell us in the comments.
