Unpacking is a zen game about the familiar experience of pulling possessions out of boxes and fitting them into a new home. Part block-fitting puzzle, part home decoration, players are invited to create a satisfying living space while learning clues about the life they’re unpacking. Over the course of eight house moves, they are given a chance to experience a sense of intimacy with a character they never see and a story they’re never told.
Key features include:
Unpacking a home - from a single bedroom to an entire house
Meditative gameplay with no timers or scores
Exploring domestic environments with all their nooks and crannies while you stack plates, hang towels, and arrange bookshelves
Discovering a character’s story through the items that come with her to each new home (and the items that get left behind)
Soundtrack by BAFTA award-winning composer and audio director Jeff van Dyck
