Play Unravel 2’s opening levels in its new trial

Cutesy puzzle-platformer Unravel 2 now has a timed trial, giving ten hours to play the start for free. The sequel launched right in the middle of E3 earlier this month, the same day as it was announced and exclusively on Origin, so even I'd half-forgotten about it myself. I've only poked at the start of the trial so far but ah, I do have soft…

Video: Two creepy yarn beasts are better than one in Unravel 2

The existence of Unravel 2 was a pleasant surprise at an EA showcase depressingly short of them. Even better, you can play the game right now. Er, if you don’t mind using Origin. I adored Unravel’s physics-based platforming, even if the horned, red figure of Yarny himself is clearly demonic in nature. It’s those dead eyes. Brrr. Making the sequel twice as unsettling is the…

Unravel 2 announced, is out… now?!

Crafted cutie Yarny is back, and this time he's made a friend. EA today not only formally announced Unravel Two, they're chuffing well launching the puzzle-platformer today too. Surprise! And now it has co-op too. We knew a sequel was coming but didn't expect this. Here's our video person Matthew playing a bit.

Unravel [official site] is currently on trial over on Origin. I assume that means Yarny will finally have to answer for his woolen crime spree*, taking to the stand as a jury of his peers (balls of yarn) listen to witness testimony and shake their heads at the awfulness of... Oh. Apparently it just means that you can try playing the first level of Unravel…

Unravel review

I'd guess most people first encountered earnest puzzle platformer Unravel [official site] during EA's E3 press conference. The creative director of Coldwood Studios, Martin Sahlin, took to the stage with slightly shaking hands and a doll he'd made of the main character, Yarny. "We put our hearts into [Unravel]," he concluded, "and we hope that when you play it you will feel that." Let's find…

Unravel Hammers Away At Every Emotional Button Going

I fear this hyper-earnest behind the scenes vid might somewhat unravel the charm and emotive clout of Unravel [official site] by being so very on the nose about love and bonds and big hearts. This may, of course, be because I am a sneering critic within whose eyes lurks only icy deadness. I hope the game itself resists such overt emotional signposting. I really do…

Unravel Swinging Into February

You may be starting to think about a New Year's resolution, so here's one idea for you: get buff tear ducts. I'm talking super-swole, mega-ripped tear ducts able to clamp down to a molecular level, so tight water particles can't squeeze through. For while Unravel [official site] might look like just a cutesy puzzle-platformer, with its wee red yarn man swinging around on himself, there'll…
