Our upcoming game What Remains of Edith Finch made its first public appearance at E3 this past month and we couldn’t be happier with the overwhelmingly positive response! Edith appeared on a number “Best of E3” lists, got a slew of nominations, was called “the most unusual experience” of the show, and was Kotaku’s Chris Suellentrop’s favorite game of E3. Here’s what a few critics had to say…

“This collection of short stories about a cursed family in Washington State offered the most unusual experience of E3 2015…It’s fresh, unusual, and intriguing.”

– The Guardian, “Our 13 Favorite Games”

“Developer Giant Sparrow prides itself on “creating surreal experiences people have never had before,” and it certainly hits that mark with Edith Finch.”

– GamesRader, “The Best of E3 2015”

“One of the weirder titles on display at E3 2015, for sure… keep your eye on this one.”

– Nubi Magazine, “E3 2015 – Best of the Rest”

“…a collection of short stories, all of them strangely morbid but all removed from reality. While devoted to the end of the days, these stories approach the unknown with wonder rather than tears.”

– LA Times, “Ten Games That Made a Lasting Impression at E3 2015”
