Unravel: A Yarny Puzzle-Platformer Published By EA

Sandwiched between booming music, screeching wheels, and blasting guns in EA’s E3 show was a quiet and cutesy platformer named Unravel [official site], which they’ll be publishing. It stars a little doll of red yarn (named Yarny) who’s adventuring through the Swedish countryside, solving physics-based puzzles by unspooling himself to swing across gaps, fly kites, hook onto fish, and so on. It’s a bit like life, yeah?

That’s going to end in tragedy, isn’t it? Just imagine his little yarny face when only a few winds are left on his wire bones. Heartbreaking. Have a look:

Unravel’s made by small Swedish studio Coldwood. Creative director Martin Sahlin explains that he had the idea while on a camping holiday with his family, and prototyped by making a little Yarny doll then going into the woods and playing at wrapping yarn around things and putting him in interesting places. That’s nice, that.

EA didn’t announce platforms but it seems unlikely they wouldn’t release a PC version, right? EA are very good about these things. [Update: Yes, it totally is.]
