3What Remains of Edith Finch

What Remains of Edith Finch

Available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC

What Remains of Edith Finch is a fascinating journey through adolescence, life and loss. Playing as the titular Edith, you revisit your family’s home for the first time in several years. Built by Edith’s grandparents, the house is unique, with new rooms and towers added to it over time as the family has grown. Now empty, all that’s left is the memories of the Finch family – and the supposed curse that’s befallen them all. You see, each Finch has died too young, often in tragic circumstances. As Edith, you’ll venture through your family tree, revisiting each day that a family member passed away.

It sounds rather sombre, and while What Remains of Edith Finch has plenty of heartbreaking moments, it’s also funny and uplifting at times, too. Exploring the Finch’s family home is fascinating; you find yourself crawling through secret passages, finding hidden doorways and more. It’s packed with secrets, and unravelling the story of Edith and her family will keep you gripped.

If you’re looking for the best games like Life is Strange, this one definitely needs to be on your list. It has numerous differences – you’ll have no story-defining decisions to make, for example. But its focus on characterisation and storytelling in a way that hooks you right in puts it up there with the best.
