It’s your turn to see what remains of Edith Finch.
A week or so ago, we brought you the news that Epic Games would be rotating a series of free games on the platform, likely in an attempt to attract more users. Its first free games would include Super Meat Boy as well as What Remains of Edith Finch, and now it’s time to grab the critically-acclaimed walking simulator from developer Giant Sparrow.
What Remains of Edith Finch is up for grabs now, and you should absolutely make it a point to pick it up and add it to your burgeoning free game collection to experience its harrowing story and interesting vignettes. Consider this story your reminder to make sure you don’t sleep on it.
It’s certainly one to remember. Players will explore the legacy of the unfortunate Finch family’s home through the eyes of the youngest surviving member Edith, as you find out what happened to each one before they passed away. It’s emotional, sometimes funny, and always affecting, with surreal imagery and morbid storytelling that you won’t want to miss.
Consider this your reminder to make sure you download it free from the Epic Games Store today, before it’s no longer sans charge as of January 25. That’s not too much longer, you know. When January 25 rolls around, The Jackbox Party Pack will be stepping in to take its place. While that’s hilarious and chock-full of great, party-centric games, the real excitement lies within this harrowing adventure.
