Unravel turned out to be one of this years big indie hits. Yarney and his stringy adventure captured the hearts and imaginations of many with its stunning visuals and great platforming action.

Well now it gives us great pleasure to let you know that this contract extension is for one specific reason. And that reason is so that they can work on a follow up to Unravel, more than likely to be called Unravel 2.With the confidence given to … Read More »

Unravel was announced to the world at E3 last year, a puzzle-platformer based in locales from developer Coldwood Interactive’s native Sweden and featuring a protagonist so loveable you can buy Valentine’s cards with him on. Martin Sahlin, the man who brought Yarny on-stage and Creative Director at Coldwood Interactive, kindly agreed to an email interview which covered meaning, emotion and Sweden, and much more. XOUK: Firstly, how did you get into game design? Martin Sahlin: I got into game development almost by accident. I always liked making computer art, and I eventually sort of stumbled into this CGFX school, where I happened to meet the founders of … Read More »

Unravel launches worldwide on 9th February 2016 on Xbox One – but EA Access members can play before it’s released for a limited time.

The Play First Trial for Unravel includes the first two levels, and should take most players around two hours to complete without spoiling all of its surprises. You can play the trial for ten hours, though, if you want to spend some extra time searching for secrets and adventuring with Yarny. The ten-hour clock only … Read More »

It seems like EA’s new cute puzzle platformer ‘Unravel’ is getting, for lack of a better term, unraveled. Things became decidedly woolly for the game when EA failed to respond to the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) denial of their trademark application for the title in December of last year. This has resulted in two of the trademarks for Unravel to be termed as ‘Abandoned’ by the USPTO. What has caused this knot in Unravel’s future? A board game company named SimplyFun currently holds the trademark for Unravel with their children’s board game ‘Beary’s Unravel Game’. The game focuses … Read More »
