If you need only one reason to be excited for What Remains of Edith Finch, it's the simple fact that it is being made by Giant Sparrow, the developer of The Unfinished Swan. The debut game from this very young studio was an incredibly unique experience about a young boy, whose mother has died and he follows her unfinished swan painting into an empty canvas. It's a very beautiful game in which you throw paint and water to unveil the world and guide your way. Easily one of the best PlayStation exclusive indie titles.
Since The Unfinished Swan launched, Giant Sparrow has been hard at work on What Remains of Edith Finch. The game is described as "a collection of short stories about a cursed family in Washington State." You play as Edith, who returns to her family home and relives the memories of her family members who all tragically died.
What Remains of Edith Finch looks like Gone Home but more stylised and with a few horror elements. It's a striking game that is overflowing with mystery and intrigue. Giant Sparrow has been fairly secretive when discussing and showcasing the game, which seems like the best way to keep this game interesting.
No specific release date as of yet but Giant Sparrow has been working on What Remains of Edith Finch for about 3 years, and this is 2016, so official news should be arriving any day now!
