What Remains of Edith Finch was shown off during Sony’s opening keynote for the PlayStation Experience. The game was shown quickly during a quickly fired montage of indie developed games, but it was the one game that really caught my eye.
The game focuses on “short stories” that each have their own unique artistic twist and gameplay changes. The overall story takes place in the Finch mansion and the trailer explains that each room has a different story of how a family member died. Every story ends with a member dying in some way, and the trailer notes that some stories are hard to believe.
The game is published by Annapurna Interactive and created by Giant Sparrow, creators of The Unfinished Swan.
Overall the game had my interest more than almost every other title at the presentation so I’m excited to play it.
The team announced a Spring 2017 release date.
