What remains of Edith Finch
What you’ll see in What Remains are things that only gamers down to first-person title love. Lots of secret crawlspaces, rooms, and footpaths make up the Finch house and surrounding wilderness that the main character has to explore. There’s a narration in which Edith Finch gives details on the places to go and what to do during the exploration.
In the game, players see a series of memories related to every Finch’s relative that has died. Players make progress by interacting with every vignette associated to those deaths. Not all flashbacks are equal and monotonous because they will be different depending on the visual style and gameplay genre.
The story is about Edith who is the character recounts the whole story and her last visit to Orcas Island on board of a ferry carrying a journal. Edith reveals details on her family which she visited in 2017. Throughout the story, she always recounts from her point of view, except for the deceased relatives, whose stories are shown with separate vignettes.
Total War Troy
In the real-time fights, AI gives things a twist in Total War Troy. In this game, the enemies you fight are not perfect and sometimes make dumb decisions like they would do in real life. This is a game in which you have to make use of your creativity to fight and beat your enemies. Due to this, there’s not such a strategy to stick to in the fights. In Total War Troy, creativity is more important than random punches.
But that doesn’t end here. It seems that Total War intends to combine three elements that are totally different: fantastic characters and mythological units that interplay through realistic combat. Also, the game is not focused on large troops but infantry, and there’s no cavalry, so users do not need to use their old notions for managing troops in Total War Troy. Here, spearmen can be fast and defensive at the same time. Only a few can switch from defending to attacking. Added to that, they are lightweight, skillful, and clever enough to help engineer a flanking attack.
As an example, it is the first spearmen that are acquired in Total WAR Troy. Basically, it is a mobile charging that is easy to rush in and pull out quickly. Normally, it is common to have some cock-ups when getting used to this attacking method. Either way, Troy comes to be an astounding evolution of the original Total War game in recent years.
The Escapists 2, Pathway
The Escapists 2 and Pathway are two of the strategic games that are topping most Epic Games lists. While Pathway is more related to breaking into tombs and doing things like in Indiana Jones, the Escapist 2 is all about breaking out of prison and thinking up plans to do it. In Pathway, you need to to break into catacombs; in the Escapist 2, you need to get out of jail. On a side note, Nazis and cultists have an important participation in Pathway.
There have been other versions of The Escapists, but if you haven’t had the chance of purchasing the previous versions, the Escapists 2 sounds like a good starting-point. It includes the same story components and some additions that make it better than its predecessor. You are able to break once you create a plan that is perfect, get swollen through bodybuilding, and learn to observe the guard for them not to catch you escaping. The prison break can be possible either alone or with friends in the multiplayer mode.
The Escapists 2 doesn’t change a lot, but at least, it contains new prisons and more escaping options to run away.
On the other hand, Pathway doesn’t distinguish itself so much from other strategy games, but it is an excellent option for newbies in adventure games because it’s not difficult. It also has some remarkable pixel art.
Both games were first released at Epic Games Store at no cost for a limited period of time.
