Electronic Arts and Coldwood Interactive today launched Unravel via digital download on Origin for the PC. Unravel is a unique physics-based puzzle platformer centered around a tiny, endearing character named Yarny.
Martin Sahlin, Creative Director at Coldwood, said:
“I wanted to make something more personal, something with more impact. The game didn’t have to change the world, or even try, but it had to be genuine, it had to have a deeper meaning. It had to have heart.”
Unravel promises to feature stunning environments that are inspired by the nature of northern Sweden, where the game was created. The visuals showcase the beauty in the ordinary – getting down on Yarny’s eye level helps immerse players in the splendor of even the most common things. The environment is more than simply a backdrop though, with clues and hints about the story entrenched throughout, for the player to uncover.
In addition to the landscape, players will experience the game’s emotion and story come to life through the original music score. Unravel’s story is told in very few words so music plays a critical role in setting the atmosphere. Composed entirely by local Swedish musicians, Unravel’s soundtrack is inspired by local folk music and traditional instruments and beautifully captures the tone of the game’s environments.
