Unravel

Unravel stole our hearts at the EA press conference, but it would all be meaningless if the actual game itself fell flat. Fortunately, Unravel is an absolute joy to play, featuring exceptionally clever puzzles, solid platforming action, and a wonderful visual style that truly makes you feel like a tiny yarn doll, doing everything you can to navigate through a beautiful, but dangerous world. There are some definite comparisons that can be made to Limbo - not that that's a bad thing - but Unravel manages to craft its own identity through the usage of Yarny's unique abilities that have him using the yarn that makes up his body to swing across gaps, climb up platforms, and bounce to new heights.

Unravel is especially unique considering that this is a game being published by EA, which historically has not taken this kind of a leap of faith in trusting a small Swedish studio with a brand new IP in a genre popularized by small indie developers. It's a gamble that I hope pays off for them, because we need more games like Unravel.
