Today, Humble Games and developer Witch Beam launched their hit award-winning game, Unpacking for PlayStation 4 & 5. 


Check out the latest blog from developer Witch Beam here. Additional assets can also be found here.


Unpacking is a zen game about the familiar experience of pulling possessions out of boxes and fitting them into a new home. Part block-fitting puzzle, part home decoration, players are invited to create a satisfying living space while learning clues about the life they’re unpacking. Over the course of eight house moves, they are given a chance to experience a sense of intimacy with a character they never see and a story they’re never told.


Key features include:

  • Unpacking a home - from a single bedroom to an entire house

  • Meditative gameplay with no timers or scores

  • Exploring domestic environments with all their nooks and crannies while you stack plates, hang towels, and arrange bookshelves

  • Discovering 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


Since its launch, Unpacking has won prestigious awards from the BAFTA Game Awards,  D.I.C.E. Awards, Game Developers Choice Awards, BandLab NME Awards, Australian Game Developer Awards, Can I Play That? Accessibility Awards, Gayming Awards, SXSW Gaming Awards and Webby Awards. Unpacking has also received awards nominations in numerous categories from the IGF Awards, Game Development World Championship Awards, GLAAD, and Video Game Accessibility Awards.
