Unravel was probably one of the more surprising announcements of this year's E3. A physics-based, puzzle platform game from EA and Coldwood Interactive, Unravel was a surprisingly charming and intimate game to be shown off so thoroughly by a major publisher at a venue like EA. You play as a figure made from red yarn, who must use his yarn to overcome various obstacles as he progresses through the northern Sweden-inspired environment.

Today, EA releases a brand new gameplay trailer detailing a level from the game:



Here's the original reveal from E3 as well:



Honestly I'm pretty excited for this as a love smaller, more intimate titles in this vein.

So here's the review to the game that 129 views stopped by to see this thread but 0 of which bothered to leave a comment. :P

 

The GameTrailers review, that is. Their penultimate review.

 

 

One of the biggest turn-offs about this for me is that the game leaves too much to player interpretation: "The game's ultimate message doesn't emotionally resonate as much as intended... You get the idea that Unravel has quite a lot to say, but never really finds an effective way to say it."

 

Also, they say that many of the stages end anticlimactically with just a common/simple puzzle, "letting go of the momentum that other sections built up."
 

Still sounds like a solid [indie] game, though.

7.5/10

I just don't think I wanna pay $15 for it. :P

 

The biggest draw of this game to me is the graphics, but ehh, I'll get the same experience from Pikmin 4. :P

Necro'ing for selfish reasons. Has anyone played the game? Is it any good? It's one of those that I've considered picking up, but always seem to forget about when I have money.

I've only played the first two levels, I keep letting it get backburnered, but from what I played I really liked it. Gameplay is a bit simple, but it's one of those nice, calming "experience" games with a real cool vibe to it.
