The dev of Assault Android Cactus is working on Unpacking, a zen puzzle game

Posted by , | Views: 3,052

Witch Beam, known for the awesome twin-stick shooter Assault Android Cactus is going to bring us something a little calmer with their next game: Unpacking.

Unlike real-life moving, stuffing your life into boxes and then unpacking everything again, Unpacking is supposed to be a little more relaxing. They say it's like "item Tetris" mixed with home decoration "while learning clues about the life you’re unpacking".

Inspired by real-life unpacking, they started prototyping in early 2018 and in May that year it was selected for the Stugan game accelerator program. For those unfamiliar, Stugan is a non-profit for game developers allowing them to spend two months in a cabin dedicated to the game, which allowed the developers to really get down to it. Since then Unpacking went on to go viral on Twitter and they've shown it off at various events with it now in full-time production.

Feature Highlight:

  • Unpack a home -- from a single bedroom to an entire house
  • Meditative gameplay with no timers, meters or score
  • 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

You can now wishlist and follow it since the Steam page just recently went live. It's confirmed to be coming to Linux, as noted in the system requirements on Steam and their press page clearly notes it too.

This looks really cute

Since I recently moved, I even went through unpacking recently as well... well, okay, I moved in mid-May, but I still had lots of boxes left to unpack, because I was missing furniture. I got some during some vacation two weeks ago, and unpacked the rest.
