Ah, this is awesome. Being a so-called walking simulator, What Remains of Edith Finch is sure to split opinion, but first impressions don't get much better than this. You play as the titular teenager who's returned to her family home for reasons not entirely known. The twist is that the house is a do-it-yourself castle composed of a hodge-podge of makeshift turrets.

The game's all about exploring the Finch family-tree, each mini-story involving a death sequence that explains how your ancestors reached their untimely demise. And the degrees of whimsy on display here make it the ultimate Sammy Game™; this author's played a little beyond the first 15 minutes now, and it's just absolutely brilliant.

Graham will have a review for you soon.
