At the 2018 E3 conference, EA revealed the trailer for Unravel 2 the sequel to their adorable 2016 title of the same name

Unravel 2 is puzzle platformer you can play with a friend or go solo to guide the Yarnies through the mesmerizing and often treacherous world. Working together the two Yarnies use the yarn to swing from trees, bounce from platform to platform of varying levels and location, have one character distract enemies by waving while the other completes puzzles, and even merge together to run across the environment.

When we reviewed Unravel in 2016, we were impressed by the crispness and detail weaved into the background and foreground of the game. “As you move forward in the level, the background moves a bit slower as if the player is looking into the distance as they move. It gives a very neat perspective to the game as you platform around solving the puzzles.” This detail was not lost on its sequel, which has enemies moving from one to the other while chasing the tiny travelers.

At its core, Unravel 2 is about finding that “spark” of hope in our friends when life is at its bleakest.  This spark leads you through levels and pushes the characters forward as they avoid living foes like birds and fish, as well as inanimate dangers like boulders and cars. This quirky and adorable adventure seems like a breath of fresh air in a line of otherwise serious and gritty titles. It is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
