Unfinished Swan developer, Giant Sparrow, unveiled the mysterious trailer above for What Remains of Edith Finch. The PlayStation 4 exclusive title will be coming sometime in 2016. A bit of a wait, I know. But Giant Sparrow has already offered some description of the game on the PlayStation blog.
What Remains of Edith Finch is a collection of short stories about a cursed family in Washington State.
Each story offers a chance to experience 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. 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.
The developer also clarified that Edith Finch is not a horror game.
