What Remains of Edith Finch Officially Announced as PS4 Exclusive

By   /   Dec 10, 2014

You might not remember it, but back in March last year we had reported on an unannounced project that Giant Sparrow was working on. The game was being tentatively called Edith Finch, though it now has an official name: What Remains of Edith Finch.

Giant Sparrow, the makers of The Unfinished Swan, has been working on the title for quite a while now seeing as it has been nearly a year since the game was first heard of. Thankfully, they have something to show with the announcement too.

The official announcement trailer of What Remains of Edith Finch is dark, gloomy and pretty obscure, just like the game’s name. However the announcement pot explains the idea behind the game.

You play short stories based on the lives of a family in Washington that is quite troubled. Your stories will have different experiences and different time brackets ranging from early 1900s to the present day.

Ian Dallas, the creative director of the game took to the PlayStation Blog with details on the game:

The gameplay and tone of the stories are as different as the family members themselves. The only constant is that each story is played from a first-person perspective and each ends with that family member’s death. 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.

However, don’t be too keen to think that it is another horror title; the developers think it is close but not exactly horror. Rather it is going to explore the unfamiliar and the strange parts of this majestic universe.

What Remains of Edith Finch is a PlayStation 4 exclusive that is slated to release in 2016.
