By Chewie, 2 years ago
Just yesterday we first met Yarny at this year's E3 as we were introduced to his game, Unravel, via a beautiful trailer. Today we learn more about this single piece of yarn's adventures and see some screens from the game.

Set in the glorious, lush landscapes of Northern Scandinavia, Unravel sees Yarny overcoming obstacles and challenges using his thread, from a simple swing or rappel to a more complex or creative challenge. The story will be told without words but promises to be "a heartfelt story about love and longing, and the ties that bind".

Martin Sahlin, Creative Director at developer Coldwood, had the following to say about the game:

The idea of Unravel was created from a very personal place. We didn't start out by saying we’re going to make a puzzle platforming game. We started by thinking more about our lives, and the things we hold meaningful. We wanted the game to have a heart and the gameplay could always be designed to represent that. The tale of Unravel is about love, and the bonds between people. And the yarn is a representation of that. Yarny’s red thread is the tie that connects everything in the game, from the gameplay mechanics to the story, and the people in it.

Unravel doesn't have a release date yet but will be coming to Xbox One.
