2What Remains of Edith Finch
Telling the story of the titular Edith Finch, a young woman returning to her childhood home for the first time in several years, What Remains of Edith Finch is a touching adventure filled with twists and turns. At its heart, it fits perfectly into the walking simulator genre: Edith moves around her old home and its grounds, an infinitely interesting place that begs exploration and discovery. But at each room she stops in, she’ll learn more about the resident – a family member now deceases – and through a creative flashback, we’ll learn what happened to them.
What Remains of Edith Finch mixes genres and methods of storytelling, leaving us with an experience that’s emotional, captivating and entirely worthy of our attention. Few so-called walking simulators on Swith come close to Edith Finch: it really is a special adventure.
