If you have no time to watch a video, just give a quick skim of the game description:
Unravel introduces Yarny, a new, lovable and endearing character made from a single thread of yarn, that slowly unravels as you move. Inspired by the unique and breath-taking environments of Northern Scandinavia, Unravel is a visually stunning, physics-based puzzle platformer. Using yarn to Swing from tree branch to tree branch or hitch a ride on a flying kite, no feat is too big. Yarny is brought to life as the representation of the ties that bind loved-ones together. Embark with Yarny on a seemingly larger than life adventure to reconnect the long-lost memories of a family. Told entirely without words, experience an exciting and heartfelt story about love, hope and the journey of life.
