The Most Prettiest Looking Video Game Of 2016
Game that look good make us feel good, unless they play terribly, in which case they get shown the door.
… a 2-D platformer featuring a cute character called Yarny that’s made of string. Created by Coldwood, a small outfit based on the northeastern coast of Sweden, it’s being published by Electronic Arts on Feb. 9.
Unravel‘s basic idea is to guide the central character through platform puzzles, making use of its yarn which unravels as it moves, creating lines that players must use cleverly in order to solve the physical puzzles that impede progression. Loss of too much twine leads to an ultimate unraveling.
“It’s always fun to play with physics,” said Coldwood’s Martin Sahlin last year. “It’s not just about solving puzzles. It’s also a big part of how you move. Sometimes it’s just traversing, navigating. Since you always leave this trail behind you, you can always grab it and climb on it and swing on it. You can do these really cool things when you combine stuff.”
This is also a game about place. Northern Sweden is a land of rock, moss, running water, clear skies and wintry trees. It’s an environment that is heavily plundered for Unravel‘s backgrounds and puzzles.
