The timeline of What Remains Of Edith Finch spans from the early 1900s until the modern day. In those years, there has been so much tragic death in the family that it’s perceived by outsiders as being cursed. To deal with their circumstance, the Finch family develop a ritual in which they seal up the dead person’s room like a time capsule, and build another room on top of it for the next person to live in. This has given the Finch family estate a bizarre verticality, slowly turned into a rickety tower of ramshackle staircases and locked rooms. In this way, each member of the Finch family became an unwitting architect, building secret passages and physics-defying constructions. To look at the crooked expanse of the architecture as it stretches to the moon is to see the physical form of the Finch family’s collective personality.
