The free games have been announced this months as What Remains of Edith Finch and Overcooked. The announcing of two indie titles has led to some disappointment neither offers a lengthy gameplay experience. However, What Remains of Edith Finch is one of my favourite indie titles of all time, with a great narrative and visual style. While closer to a walking simulator than a game, What Remains of Edith Finch does deliver a unique and exceptionally polished experience and if you haven’t played it then I would strongly advise you to download it and check it out this month. Below is a brief overview of each game in turn:

What Remains of Edith Finch

 

 

This is a game that tells a tale both dark and heart-warming. You play the character of Edith the last of the cursed line of the Finch family, which are said to all be cursed to die before their time. While the theme sounds dark, the narrative is as much about life and the way the family members each lived as much as the discovery of their untimely demises. If you want to know more then above you can find the game trailer and if you want to read my full review then you can click here.

 

Overcooked

 

 

Is a game primarily aimed at local co-op play with friends. Up to four people can play at once, working together to cook meals for hungry customers. While the game does have a solo mode, reports are that it is a frustrating and limited affair, so if you want to enjoy them game, I hope you have some friends on hand. There is no online support, so you’ll need your all friends on your couch and with a controller each. If you want to know more then feel free to check out the trailer above.
