Released on April 25th 2017, What Remains of Edith Finch is perhaps my favourite game of the year so far. You play as Edith Finch, the last of the Finch family. Returning to your ancestral home. You explore the quirky house learning the tragic tales of your cursed family.
The game has an amazing, emotional story with great atmospheric music as you explore the house deep in the forest; all with the skeletal remains of the original Finch House protruding from the sea as a reminder of the Finch’s bad luck.
This is a game I absolutely loved, telling the stories of the past in a variety of creative and unique ways and with a story that leaves the conclusions up to your own interpretation. Was there a Finch Family curse? Was it just coincidence? OR did the family’s fixation on the events of the past cause the curse to become real in their own minds?
The conclusions are for you to make.
