EA To Publish A Yarn Platformer, Unravel



Electronic Arts have teamed up with Coldwood Interactive, a Swedish studio, to develop Unravel, a puzzle platformer featuring a yarn theme. You can watch a trailer for the game above.


Here’s how EA describe Unravel’s features:


  • Environment: Inspired by the breath-taking, lush environments of Northern Scandinavia, traverse nature’s beauty as well as the dangers that it has in store.


  • Puzzles: Using Yarny’s thread, interact with the environment to swing across a tree gap or hitch a ride on a flying kite, no feat is too big. The tools may be simple but they have ability to accomplish complex puzzles.


  • Underlying Story: Unlock a heartfelt story re-connecting the memories of a long lost family. The tale is told completely without words, and Yarny is the bond that ties everything together.


Unravel is in development for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
