Here’s how Yarny came to be in Unravel
Speaking of beautiful platformers, the visuals in Unravel are insane. Just look at these backdrops. I grew up in the country: That tree bark looks fantastic. I spent two years on a beach in Guam: Those waves look fantastic, too. While I think Yarny’s character design looks a little scary—like it’s just this side of a children’s horror film—hearing the inspiration behind Yarny’s creation in the video is wonderful. There’s a real love inherent to Yarny’s makeup, and real love in the family camping trip that gave Creative Director Martin Sahlin the spark of an idea to create Unravel. It’s all about the threads that connect all of us together, and the ties that bind family and loved ones. Awwww.
Unravel is on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 9.
