Before you embark on a journey with Yarny in Unravel, Creative Director, Martin Sahlin, invites you to create your very own version of this tiny, new character.
Yarny represents the bonds that tie people together and Sahlin encourages you to share your own Yarny with @Unravel_Game using Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Select photos will be showcased on an interactive map, highlighting Yarny’s love woven across the globe.
Unravel is a game all about overcoming obstacles, both big and small. Some challenges are simple, like using Yarny’s thread to swing across a gap, or rappel down a tree. Sometimes things get 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, witness him unlock a heartfelt story about love and longing, and the ties that bind. The tale is told completely without words and Yarny is the red thread that runs through it all.
“The idea of Unravel was created from a very personal place. We didn’t start out by saying we’re going to make a puzzle platforming game. We started by thinking more about our lives, and the things we hold meaningful. We wanted the game to have a heart and the gameplay could always be designed to represent that,” says Martin Sahlin, Creative Director at Coldwood. “The tale of Unravel is about love, and the bonds between people. And the yarn is a representation of that. Yarny’s red thread is the tie that connects everything in the game, from the gameplay mechanics to the story, and the people in it.”
Available worldwide on February 9, Unravel will capture your imagination, test your cleverness, and steal your heart. Unravel will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
