Heartfelt Puzzle Platformer Available Feb. 9
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Make way for Yarny! Coldwood Interactive and Electronic Arts Inc.
(NASDAQ:EA) today announced Unravel™ will be available worldwide
on Feb. 9, 2016 via digital download on Origin™
for PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. The Unravel trailer
released today features new gameplay of Yarny—the tiny, new character
made from a single thread of yarn—embarking on an adventure to reconnect
the bonds of love.
“Gaming is a powerful platform, able to inspire players and touch their
hearts. With Unravel, we’re hoping to do just that,” says Martin
Sahlin, Creative Director at Coldwood. “Yarny’s quest is to mend broken
bonds and the yarn represents the love and connection between people.
Along the way, we’ll test your cleverness with environment-based puzzles
inspired by our home in Northern Sweden.”
Unravel is a game all about overcoming obstacles, both big and
small. Using Yarny’s small thread and big heart, players will traverse
through the breath-taking, lush environments of Northern Scandinavia in
this unique physics-based puzzle platformer. Some challenges are simple,
like using Yarny’s thread to swing across a gap, or rappel down a tree.
But others are more complex, and players will need to use Yarny’s thread
in clever and creative ways to find the path forward. Whatever the case,
no feat is too big for Yarny. Along the way, unlock a heartfelt story
about love and longing, and the ties that bind, with Yarny as the red
thread that runs through it all.
Unravel is developed in Umeå, Sweden by Coldwood Interactive and
will be available for $19.99 in North America. EA Access members can
play Unravel before the Feb. 9 release, and get a 10% discount on
the full game, only on Xbox One.
