Unravel

From EA and Swedish developer Coldwood comes a physics-based puzzle-platformer in which you control Yarny, a tiny yarn golem. Using his own string, which unspools from his body as he runs, Yarny can swing across gaps, fly kites, ensnare and pull objects, and even tie himself to things like fish and allow himself to be pulled behind them.

We haven't seen a release date yet, but according to the official Twitter bio, Unravel is coming to PC. You can watch the trailer for Unravel at the official website or embedded below.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
