During the PlayStation Experience the world was introduced to Edith Finch now Giant Sparrow are greeting us with the game’s screenshots showing off the world that awaits us and Edith.
In What Remains of Edith Finch, a collection of short stories about a cursed family in Washington State.
Players will experience a different set of stories that tells the life of a different family member with stories ranging from the early 1900s to the present day.
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.
Players will follow Edith Finch as she explores the history of her family and tries to figure out why she’s the last Finch left alive.
Ian Dallas, Creative Director, Giant Sparrow reassures gamers that even though Edith Finch may sound like a horror game, it isn’t.
I mean it’s not a game that’s designed to scare people. Instead, we wanted to make something that feels like looking up at the night sky and being simultaneously amazed by the majesty of the universe and humbled by how fragile and short your own life is. It echoes what it feels like to be a child: encountering forces beyond your ability to understand or control. That can definitely feel scary, but it isn’t meant to.
What Remains of Edith Finch will be available in 2016, exclusively for PS4.
