Everybody loves free stuff even when it might not be exactly what we're looking for. However, starting next week, the Epic Games Store has a game to give away that scored a MIGHTY rating of 88 here at Open Critic. From January 10th to January 25th, players can grab a copy of What Remains of Edith Finch for free from the Epic Games Store.
What Remains of Edith Finch is a collection of strange tales about a family in Washington state.
As Edith, you’ll explore the colossal Finch house, searching for stories as she explores her family history and tries to figure out why she's the last one in her family left alive. Each story you find lets you experience the life of a new family member on the day of their death, with stories ranging from the distant past to the present day.
The gameplay and tone of the stories are as varied as the Finches themselves. The only constants are that each is played from a first-person perspective and that each story ends with that family member's death.
Ultimately, it's a game about what it feels like to be humbled and astonished by the vast and unknowable world around us.
90% of the reviewers here at Open Critic recommend What Remains of Edith Finch. Have you played yet?
