What Remains of Edith Finch

What Remains of Edith Finch was the winner of the BAFTA Games Award for Best Game, in 2018. So not your ordinary indie game.

It's really difficult to talk about this game. It is a – so called – walking simulator, but it's so much more than that. The game rips conventions and has its own rules, its own will.  A Bohemian Rhapsody where you are not a player, you are a passenger who is lucky to be able to enjoy its trip. It is a master piece, it is art. And you just need to play. Saying anything further would only ruin the experience.

In a past life, when I was much more into gaming, I had played The Unfinished Swan, the first game by Giant Sparrow, which used to be a console exclusive. It was a fun and highly creative game, but it never crossed by mind their second game would be acclaimed by the critics and receive multiple awards. It was deserved.

Really looking forward for what is coming next.
