Epic Games Store offers adventure game What Remains of Edith Finch completely free for a limited time.

Back in December 2018, video game developer/publisher Epic Games have offered to do a free game giveaway for PC every two weeks until the end of the year during their official announcement for the global launch of their digital storefront Epic Games Store.

First they gave up open-world survival-adventure Subnautica from Unknown Worlds Entertainment, then there was indie platform title Super Meat Boy from Team Meat and now they are offering first-person adventure game What Remains of Edith Finch for free!

The player character will be exploring deaths of several members of Finch family in their long abandoned house. You ought to take the role of deceased family members died in bizarre and tragic ways years ago while investigating the blight that befall upon them.

Even though the title plays out in a slow paced motion where players are on a quest to discover how a generation died of unnatural causes while reliving those memories and having Edith Finch narrating the events that took place prior gives out a lot of creepy vibe, this is still not a horror game.

Catherine on PC Confirmed by ESRB

After teasing on Steam, a recently revealed ESRB rating confirms that puzzle platformer game Catherine is coming on PC.

Before Catherine: FullBody was announced for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita as a remaster version of the 2011 puzzle platformer Catherine by developer/publisher Atlus, the original title was also available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Recently, an image of a Sheep with its tongue out was posted on the news section of the Steam page for action-adventure title Bayonetta by publisher Sega and people took it as a hint of Catherine coming to PC but it was later confirmed by an ESRB Rating.

Catherine on PC Confirmed by ESRB


Even though there was no solid confirmation, fans were quick to point out that Catherine is coming to PC seeing the sheep on the site and taking it as a messenger. What the curious players want to know now is which version of this puzzle adventure game are they getting?

The game gets a Mature 17+ rating from ESRB for most obvious reasons like having partial nudity, sexual themes and strong language within its content but people already knew that. The updated version, Catherine: Full Body has additional contents that have everyone interested in it.


To simplify things, we took a look at the Australian Classification Board rate for the game where it is titled as "Catherine Classic", which most likely to suggest that this one is the 2010 release version and it was submitted by Sega as well.

Having to re-release a game when they are already developing an updated version is pointless but is it because the company wants to keep Full Body as a Sony consoles exclusive while re-launch the original on Nintendo Switch, PC and Xbox One?


It doesn't sound simply anymore, does it? If Atlus wanted, they could simply make the game backwards compatible on Xbox One. Or maybe they are doing this because they wanted to avoid confusion among fans on which version are they getting by renaming it.

It could also be that Catherine Classic will add the newly introduced third girl named Rin and new endings for her but will not include the many newly developed animated cut scenes and content from Catherine: Full Body. We hope an official announcement clear this out soon.

Joker, the protagonist from the popular JRPG title will be a playable character and his involvement to the fray was announced back in September 2018 along with a few other related contents and the gameplay video was meant to display his playing style.

Whereas we usually see Vincent trying to climb his way to the top of never-ending series of towered blocks, the Phantom Thief makes it look easier with precision and his quick speed, which make it seems like he is meant for solving this sort of haunted puzzles.

RELATED: Catherine: Full Body E3 2018 Trailer

Catherine: Full Body adds a brand-new character Rin to cause a friction between two other main characters, Catherine and Katherine. She is a pianist from Stray Sheep and players can choose from 11 different vocals to be her voice in the Japanese release.

Aside from teasing his appearance, Atlus never revealed whether the game will arrive on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita worldwide same time as they will on Japan or would come at a later date. Same can be said about the arrival of Joker in a DLC when the game finally launches.
