About

Unpacking is a zen puzzle game about the familiar experience of pulling possessions out of boxes and fitting them into a new home. Part “item Tetris”, part home decoration, you are invited to create a satisfying living space while learning clues about the life you’re unpacking. Over the course of 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.
Features
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

Unpacking reviews and comments

Rarely does a game like this come along. I couldn't stop playing until I finished, and wished it would never end! Very wholesome and relax puzzle game where you unpack from moving boxes and place your stuff. The charm of this game is how it tells a story without even showing any actions, it's all in the items you unpack. If you're observant, you can even detect subtle changes and what that might mean for your character. I loved all the nerdy stuff in there and I just kept relating to the things that I would unbox.
