An excellent narrative-driven adventure title, and a dangerously addictive co-op title.
Sony has announced the two games that will be available for free in the month of May for PlayStation Plus subscribers, and they’re good really good offerings, with Giant Sparrow’s What Remains of Edith Finch and Ghost Town Games’ Overcooked!
What Remains of Edith Finch is, of course, the standout game here. It’s a thoughtful and ponderous narrative-driven adventure title that sees you playing as Edith Finch, who returns to her family home to learn about the deaths of each of the Finch family, who are cursed to have all but one member from every generation to die in mysterious ways. It’s a surprisingly affecting and moving tale told via expert storytelling, so if that sort of thing interests you, this might be a great time to jump in (if you haven’t done so already).
Then there’s Overcooked!, which is a completely different kind of experience, but no less entertaining. Its co-op cooking “simulation” gameplay is accessible and a ton of fun, and can lead to countless moments of chaos- the good kind of chaos.
Both games will be available for free starting May 7.
