Discover What Remains of Edith Finch on Xbox One July 19

What Remains of Edith Finch is a collection of playable short stories about a cursed family in Washington State. You play as Edith, who tries to figure out why she is the last one in her family alive upon coming back to the house she grew up in. As you explore the house, you'll find stories about each family member with its own unique gameplay and each ending with the death of that family member. It's a game that touches on a lot of subjects: death, family, stories and what we leave behind, but more than anything it's a game about the unknown, about exploring something with no idea of what you're going to find. This makes the game a little hard to describe because the more I tell you... Read more

Creating a Community of Heroes in Next Up Hero, Coming to Xbox One in 2018

When I was growing up, arcade games were everywhere. Pizzerias, bowling alleys…  even convenience stores usually had a cabinet or two. Street Fighter II, TMNT, Mortal Kombat, NBA Jam, and on and on. Every try mattered, and even if you died or lost, you always knew you’d have another chance, as long as you had one more quarter to spare. These games were designed to be hard (they had to make money somehow), but they were also accessible. You could take turns or play with or against friends and still have a great time. A lot of the time, I’d just stand there, watching friends play. When someone died, we would often continue each other’s games where the last person left off. I loved... Read more
