About The Game

Unpack someone's belongings at different stages of their life to learn their story in this zen puzzle game.

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.

Features:

  • 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
