About: 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.
Created by Giant Sparrow, the team behind the first-person painting game The Unfinished Swan.

About: The musical cadence of What Remains of Edith Finch is deliberately slow, immensely methodical
and eventually, cathartic. Once you reach its bittersweet and triumphant conclusion, the score, at first so
somber, achieves something few soundtracks do - taking the listener on a robust emotional journey,
wrought with swells of every sensation within the Freudian encyclopedia, all told through the eyes of the
Finch family’s harrowing memories.
Composer Jeff Russo (Fargo, Legion, The Night Of) conveys all of this, and more, with complexity and
sincerity, leaving players with a hummable, yet cursed melody that eerily bonds with their very being.
