Developed by Giant Sparrow, What Remains of Edith Finch is a single-player narrative adventure game consisting of a collection of short stories about a cursed family in Washington State.
Played from a first-person perspective, you explore the history of Edith Finch’s family and she attempts to figure out why she’s the last Finch left alive.
Originally released on PC and PS4 in April 2017, and on Xbox One in July that year, it has won a string of high-profile awards including BAFTA’s Best Game 2018, and Best Narrative at both the 2018 Game Developers Choice Awards and The Game Awards 2017.
