What Remains of Edith Finch is a collection of short stories about a cursed family in Washington State.
Each story offers a chance to experience the life of a different family member with stories ranging from the early 1900s to the present day. The gameplay and tone of the stories are as varied as the family members themselves. The only constants are that each is played from a first-person perspective and that each story ends with that family member's death. It's a game about what it feels like to be humbled and astonished by the vast and unknowable world around us.
You'll follow Edith Finch as she explores the history of her family and tries to figure out why she's the last Finch left alive.
"...a game that succeeds in recreating the childhood joy of reading a book and being utterly transported into its pages."
5/5 - The Guardian
"It reminded me why I play video games... why I love this medium so much. It reminded me that life ends, and life can be tragic, but life can be meaningful and joyous. I think it may be my favourite game ever, and certainly the most powerful."
5/5 - The Telegraph
"I expected What Remains of Edith Finch to be weird and vaguely menacing, but instead found it to be heartbreakingly sweet."
9/10 - Polygon
