Yarny is the next Lara Croft. He climbs, jumps, repels, swings from cliff to cliff…to go where no yarn has gone before. He’s that cool. Yarny is the hero of Unravel, a “physics-based puzzle platformer” coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on February 9, 2016.
Yes, Yarny is literally a string of yarn clumped together to form a squishy imp-like creature who shoots out yarn from his hands to thread together the memories of a lost family. The trailer shows an old woman reminiscing. She drops a ball of red yarn which unravels to form Yarny who takes the opportunity to do what any yarn would do – go on an adventure outside the safety of home.
There are puzzles and obstacles he must overcome. Kites to hitch a ride on and tree limbs and construction equipment to get from left to right in this side-scroller. Game is simple, but looks highly satisfying, and rewarding. And the rewards are more precious than rare artifacts. Lost memories. Lots of them. Collect them all to paint a picture of true happiness.
Let the memories (and the puns) begin – spin it, Yarny!
