Later Levels

Since recently playingWhat Remains of Edith Finch, Caitlin has been discussing indie games over on Proud Gamer Girl. I had the opportunity to try a demo during last year’s EGX event but haven’t yet had been able to play the full title, although it sounds as if I’ll need a box of tissues when I do.
