Unravel game review

A1lCKrrA33L. AC SL1500  808x1024 Unravel

Unravel introduces Yarny, a new, lovable and endearing character made from a single thread of yarn, that slowly unravels as you move. Inspired by the unique and breath-taking environments of Northern Scandinavia, Unravel is a visually stunning, physics-based puzzle platformer. Using his yarn to Swing from tree branch to tree branch or hitch a ride on a flying kite, no feat is too big. Yarny is brought to life as the representation of the ties that bind loved-ones together. Embark with Yarny on a seemingly larger than life adventure to reconnect the long-lost memories of a family. Told completely without words, experience an exciting and heartfelt story about love, hope and the journey of life.

I’m not sure I was ready for how emotionally charged this game ended up being, even without dialogue or any true storyline. This is a great new IP that I hope we see more of, but I’d appreciate if they left the heartbreaking background stuff out of the next game they make.

As for the physics based puzzles, there were a few that led to Yarnie’s repeated death while I tried to figure out exactly what to do next. Usually it was because I didn’t (or couldn’t) see an attachment point and once I figured out where to shoot my yarn, I got to where I needed to go.

This was fun, and it’s current price point of around $10 is a steal. I think I even saw it for $5 during a deep discount sale at one point. It’s a shorter game, but these types of puzzle games don’t have to be very long to be satisfying.
