What Remains of Edith Finch free next week on Epic Games Store

A little bird told me.

Top-notch narrative adventure What Remains of Edith Finch will be free to download from the Epic Games Store next week.

Giant Sparrow's critically-acclaimed debut is set to be the next game offered free on Epic's marketplace, for two weeks beginning 10th January.

It'll replace the current freebie, Super Meat Boy, which you have six days still to claim.

Edith Finch is "an elegiac, memorable and affecting tale of the misfortunes suffered by the members of a deeply eccentric family," Simon Parkin wrote, recommending it in Eurogamer's What Remains of Edith Finch review.

It's a short but impactful story with some hugely memorable moments, reinforced by its unique cast of characters and mechanics - and one you now have no excuse not to give the few hours it takes to experience.
