EA’s adorable yarn game Unravel is launching in February

February just got a lot cuter. EA has announced that Unravel — an adorable puzzle / platforming game that stars a character made out of yarn — will launch on February 9th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99.

First announced earlier this year at E3, the slow, measured game has you exploring the Swedish countryside, one where every object seems towering, thanks to your diminutive size. Apples become massive boulders, while trees are like skyscrapers to be scaled. The yarn theme also impacts the gameplay, giving you a lifeline to go back if you make mistakes.

Unravel is being developed by Swedish studio Coldwood Interactive, and it's also one of the rare games from a big publisher to feel small and personal. Along with Mirror's Edge Catalyst — which was recently delayed until May — it's a game that shows a different side of a company best known for blockbusters like FIFA and Battlefield.
