This week I tried UNRAVEL, a side-scrolling puzzle platformer made by the Swedish company Coldwood Interactive and published by Electronic Arts in February 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
This is a very sweet game with a soothing soundtrack that reminded me of Journey and Flower.
Similar to Little Big Planet, you play as a little doll. This one is made of yarn, aptly named “Yarny,” who unravels as you travel through the world. Yarny’s yarn is an important part of the experience, used to lasso, climb, pull weeds, swing, and build bridges.
UNRAVEL is rated “E” for everyone but can be a bit dark, frightening and emotional at times, and the puzzles may be difficult for young children.
UPDATE May 2018: I played through the entire game, which you can watch on my YouTube channel.
UPDATE June 2018: Unravel 2 is available!
