Unravel featured

I don’t usually come into E3 expecting much from EA. To be brutally honest, they generally cater to FPS, sports games or racing titles. It’s unexpected and therefore incredible to find them publishing a game like Unravel. The game has you controlling a little red creature called Yarny on its journey through lush and beautifully animated worlds. I honestly haven’t seen graphics this lush since the latest Pixar movie. It’s really great stuff.

The game itself looks to be a puzzle platformer, with the theme that the farther you go, the more you unravel. You are able to use your own body to tether yourself to objects, race away from wild animals, swing across gaps and much more. I haven’t been this enchanted with anything EA published in a while, and I can only hope it’s a positive trend for their future projects. The only thing I want to know is what platforms Unravel will be available for. I can only assume XBox One and PS4, but hope against hope for a Wii U and PC release. Take a look at the trailer and tell me what you think!
