Unboxing, Puzzle Story Game, Moving to PlayStation May 10

To move out

Sometimes moving to a new place can be really nice. Once you start unpacking and seeing the house come together the way you envisioned it, it’s almost meditative. Now you can enjoy that feeling on PlayStation. Today, Humble Games and Witch Beam are happy to announce that Zen puzzle game, Unpacking, is coming to PlayStation 4 and 5 on May 10th. Additionally, a Witch Beam blog post provides details on unboxing ideas and how the items tell stories.

Unboxing introduces players to a story told as they move through houses and time. From 1997, the game moves forward in time. The player will endeavor to unbox someone’s boxes of items and learn more about them in the process. Of course, the game is a storytelling experience. However, it is mixed with puzzle experience and decoration simulation. The game provides an experience, there is no score or timer to worry about. Furthermore, it aims to emphasize the power of exploring history through objects.

“Items often have a personal connection to you, the player, as you encounter things that remind you of your own life or those of people you know. And items are personal to us developers because part of creating of this game involved drawing on our own experiences and finding ways to add small details where we could. Says Witch Beam developer Tim Dawson in the blog post.

Unpacking is coming to PlayStation 4 and 5 on May 10, 2022. The game has won multiple awards and nominations. Players interested in unboxing can learn more on PlayStation’s website. So, settle in and get ready for some unboxing. Move some things, put down heavy things.
