What we don't know still far outweighs what we do, but with the release of a new trailer and launch target, we now have a little more insight into Giant Sparrow's upcoming What Remains of Edith Finch.
The game's title is somewhat misleading, as Edith herself is actually the last remaining member of "a cursed family in Washington State." So what fate has befallen the other Finches, and why is Edith the only one left? To discover that, gamers will play through a collection of short stories, each telling a different family member's tale. Ranging from the early 1900s to present day, the stories will be "as varied as the family members themselves", but the one common demoninator is that "each story ends with that family member's death."
Unlike The Unfinished Swan, the developer's highly-stylized previous title, What Remains of Edith Finch features crisply-rendered realistic 3D graphics, presented in first-person perspective. Details about the actual gameplay have been kept tightly under wraps so far, as there will be different mechanics involved to suit the particular stories, some of which are hinted at in the latest trailer.
If you like what you see, hopefully you've got a PS4, as What Remains of Edith Finch will be a Sony exclusive when it releases sometime in spring 2017. To learn more about the game in the meantime, drop by the official website for additional details.
