Off-Topic! Game Suggestion: What Remains of Edith Finch

Today we're taking a slight detour to recommend a title for Alan Wake fans following news of an upcoming giveaway!

If you follow gaming news, chances are that you've heard of the Epic Games Store; a new digital shop for PC titles which aims to support developers through a fairer split of revenue. With the launch of the store, Epic has scheduled free titles every fortnight to encourage and reward its members. The next free title is What Remains of Edith Finch, and something I wanted to talk about in this post.

If you enjoyed Alan Wake, you might want to check out What Remains of Edith Finch, it's a brilliant title created by indie developer, and it's free on the Epic Games Store between 10 - 24th January.

In the game, you explore the Finch household, discovering the mysteries of the family and the weird curse that have haunted the members. Some of the stories are heartbreaking, some are sweet, and some are creepy, but all of them are told beautifully and is surrounded with a mystery that will keep you thinking about it for a while after. If you enjoyed Alan Wake and games like Gone Home, make sure to check it out!

Official What Remains of Edith Finch Synopsis:

Winner of Best Game at the 2018 BAFTA Game Awards, as well as Best Narrative awards at the GDC 2018 Choice Awards, 2018 SXSW Gaming Awards, and The Game Awards 2017, What Remains of Edith Finch is a collection of strange tales about a family in Washington state.

As Edith, you’ll explore the colossal Finch house, searching for stories as she explores her family history and tries to figure out why she's the last one in her family left alive. Each story you find lets you experience the life of a new family member on the day of their death, with stories ranging from the distant past to the present day.

The gameplay and tone of the stories are as varied as the Finches 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.

Ultimately, it's a game about what it feels like to be humbled and astonished by the vast and unknowable world around us.

Created by Giant Sparrow, the team behind the first-person painting game The Unfinished Swan.
