Unpacking scratches your organization itch with new trailer

Open some cardboard boxes and find a home for your stuff in Unpacking.


Unpacking, developed by indie Brisbane studio Witch Beam Games, asks players to organize their lives in a new trailer. The trailer shows off the Zen-like feeling of finding a home for all your stuff. Check out the meditative goodness below.

Witch Beam Games is a Brisbane-based team that is bringing players Unpacking. This pixel-style game has a simple premise, but one that is immediately rewarding: open a moving box and figure out where to put its contents. Players will need to shuffle items around, work out which plates to put toward the front of the shelf and which at the back, the order they want their towels, and other mundane and totally-relaxing choices.

The official website for Unpacking bills it as having “meditative gameplay” that features no timers or other stress-inducing features. There also looks to be a story throughout the experience as players discover the character’s story as she moves into a new home. The items she takes and the items she leaves will paint a picture of the life she lives.

You can learn more the Unpacking Steam page, which reveals a 2021 release year. You can also keep it locked to Shacknews for the latest on Unpacking, which this Brisbanite is looking forward to checking out. There’s also plenty more to come during E3 2021, and you’re already in the right place for all the latest news.
