Ian Dallas Creative Director from games developer Giant Sparrow has revealed more details about a new PlayStation game via the PS Blog in the form of the upcoming horror title, What Remains of Edith Finch?
The What Remains of Edith Finch game was first unveiled at Sony’s PlayStation Experience event last December, but since then news about the games development has been very quite, until now.
Watch the brief trailer below to whet your appetite for the new console game that will also be demonstrated at the upcoming E3 games show in a few weeks. Dallas explains more details :
“It’s hard to sum up the game in a screenshot because the game is a collection of short stories. Each of those stories is about the death of a different Finch family member and each is meant to look and feel different from the others, the way no two people in any family are alike.
Which is why to start with we’re focusing a lot on the Finch family house where the game begins. As Edith, players will be exploring this house and eventually unlocking bedrooms for all the various family members. Inside each bedroom is something that tells a story about that person’s life (like a diary, or a collection of photos, etc).
The Finch family house, by the way, is crazy. The family has been living here for the last hundred years and each generation adds on to it. By the time Edith arrives the house is an enormous artifact influenced by a range of eccentric, stubborn folks. Hopefully it’s also a place that comes across as believable and familiar. Our goal has been to make the house feel fantastical but at the same time like it was all made out of stuff you could buy at Home Depot.
And that’s the game in a nutshell: a surreal experience that’s grounded in a familiar world. The deaths in each of the stories are a little bizarre but the really strange thing is death itself.”
