In Unravel you’ll become Yarny, who is made from a single strand of yarn. He will traverse stunning environments inspired by Northern Sweden — also home to developer Coldwood Interactive — on a quest to mend a broken bond and re-unite a family’s lost loved ones.

Yarny will slowly unravel as he moves. Fortunately, more yarn can be discovered along the way with which to fortify him.

Yarn will play a big part in the game’s physics-based puzzles. It will enable Yarny to negotiate such maneuvers as reaching out, climbing, swinging, connecting, making bridges and launching himself high in the air.

There is no dialog in Unravel. The story unfolds through Yarny’s expressions, through moods, moments, music, and -– of course -– the environment.

Unravel is about finding beauty, wonders and adventures in the ordinary world. You’ll discover memories, secrets and subtleties that you can assemble any way you want in order to craft your own story.

The game is to be released on February 9, 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
