The game centres around its protagonist Yarny, an apple-sized creature made of red yarn. He explores the world around him that makes small everyday things look large due to his size. By using the yarn from his body, Yarny creates rope to form bridges, pull things, and swing from items. Yarn is the main medium used to solve complex puzzles. As Yarny moves, the twine which he is made of unravels, creating lines that the player must use to solve puzzles to progress. It also serves as a challenge because walking Yarny too far will unravel him into a slim frame, unable to reach further. This frame can be refilled by interacting with balls of red yarn in the game environment. On this mechanic, Sahlin has stated, “It’s always fun to play with physics. 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.”
Unravel combines nature and nostalgia to great effect in this moving puzzle adventure, starring the loveable Yarny.
Stunningly rendered close-ups of nature make Unravels somber fable and irritating death traps just worth surviving.
From the moment I first saw the trailer for this game, I was interested. Just the look and polish of the graphics was fascinating to me. I love a good challenging puzzle game. And this fits the bill almost perfectly.
