Unpacking returns but this time it’s the full version of the game so we can delve a little deeper into the story of the character that we never meet!

Each level of the game is set as our unseen star has just moved home. The idea of the game is to open boxes, take out the items and put them somewhere in the new place! Of course the game is checking that you’re putting things in sort of the right place, so no toasters in the sink and laptops in the bath or whatever, but for the most part it’s a lovely relaxing game about organising things.

However as we play time passes by and we learn more and more about the star of the show by the homes they move into and the items we unpack.

In this video we look at levels 1 to 3 in details, we have a fleeting look at level 4 and we very, very briefly pop into level 5, but at the request of the publishers we don’t give too much away from level4 onward.

Unpacking is a zen game about the familiar experience of pulling possessions out of boxes and fitting them into a new home. Part block-fitting puzzle, part home decoration, you are invited to create a satisfying living space while learning clues about the life you’re unpacking. Over the course of eight house moves, you are given a chance to experience a sense of intimacy with a character you never see and a story you’re never told.

Unpack a home — from a single bedroom to an entire house
Meditative gameplay with no timers, meters or scores
Explore domestic environments with all their nooks and crannies while you stack plates, hang towels, and arrange bookshelves
Discover a character’s story through the items that come with her to each new home (and the items that get left behind)
Soundtrack by BAFTA award-winning composer and audio director Jeff van Dyck
