Developer Giant Sparrow’s critically lauded What Remains of Edith Finch is coming to PlayStation 4 as a limited edition physical release. In addition to the physical copy of the game, a special edition vinyl of the game’s soundtrack is also on its way. Both the game and the soundtrack are available for pre-order now from iam8bit.

The physical game is coming January 2018 and features a “premium reversible cover insert.” It also ships region-free and will set you back $29.99.

The soundtrack is pressed onto a “brown smoke” colored vinyl with album art from Giant Sparrow artist Holly Rothrock. It’s also available for pre-order and will set you back $28.

What Remains of Edith Finch is a first-person exploration of the history of the Finch family. The story starts to come together as you discover clues about each family member’s final moments. Despite being a short game (it took me under 6 hours to complete) it is a game that invites replays due to the surprising nature of the family members’ vignettes. Each one is highly detailed and worth a second, or even third, view.

Our own reviews machine Gavin Sheehan gave What Remains of Edith Finch a 10/10 saying, “What Remains of Edith Finch is an interesting game with a great story, even with most of it being tragedy. It’s told well and the family you encounter are all interesting in their own ways. The ending to it is both saddening but fitting, with the lesson that no one can escape death, so take the time to enjoy everything you have now and realize how cool but fleeting life can be. It’s a hard lesson to learn, but if you can learn it from a video game, then please play and open your heart for what’s to come.”
