I don’t know how many of you are playing. I have no idea how many of the players liked it as much as I did. But for me, unpacking was one of the great surprises of the past year. I didn’t have such high expectations of him, maybe partly because I reacted more than I would normally give, I liked him more; But for me, it’s become an exemplary game in storytelling.
In fact, it is a very simple game (then the derigend of clones, especially on the mobile front, supports this detection), we open the boxes and place the items in various corners of the house. Under normal circumstances, games like this seem like simple therapy tools to me, when I say, “Let me place them more neatly, the books should be arranged in order of height, the toys be together”, and I relax. Here, I saw that I could make sense of an ordinary object, a towel, even a photo. The game has chosen to tell us its story not with words, but with objects that are there and that are not there, and it does so successfully.
When I’m so happy, I want readers with similar tastes to see this game, play it, experience it in person. And while I’ve found a story that might be an occasion, I wanted to briefly share my views on the game with you 🙂
With the announcement shared on PS Blog, we have learned that Unpacking will be available for PS4 and PS5 starting tomorrow. Tim Dawson, one of the game’s developers, also shared something about the game; It was good for me to read the stories and attention-grabbing details behind a watch, crayons, computer, toy dragon on this occasion, so I decided to play it again by saying, “I wonder what I’m missing.” You can play the PS or PC version (which is available on Xbox Game Pass), but I say give this game a chance at the earliest opportunity. Maybe you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
