Unpacking starts in 1997 and moves forwards through time, and is a part block-fitting puzzle, part home decoration game where you are tasked with creating a living space while learning clues about the life you’re unpacking. Throughout 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.
PlayStation gamers who have been waiting for Unpacking will only have to wait until next week. That’s because the game about the process of removing goods out of boxes and fitting them into a new house will be launched for PS4 and PS5 on May 10. If you’re not acquainted with the title, it’s a game about pulling someone’s belongings out of boxes and learning about that person’s life.
