Unravel Two is a puzzle platform video game developed by Swedish studio Coldwood Interactive and published by Electronic Arts. It was released on 9 June 2018 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game centres on two Yarnys, small anthropomorphic creatures made of yarn.[3] It is the sequel to the 2016 game Unravel.

Gameplay[edit]

Unlike the first game, Unravel Two is both a single-player and a multiplayer game, though local co-op only. The game centres on two Yarnys, which can be controlled with either one player or two, which must work together in order to solve puzzles and manipulate the world. The game contains a main storyline, set on an island, as well as challenge levels, significantly more difficult levels.[4]

Development[edit]

In May 2016, EA announced the developers of Unravel, Coldwood Interactive, had signed a publishing deal for their next game. This game was later confirmed to be Unravel Two.[5]

On 9 June 2018, at their 2018 E3 press conference, EA announced Unravel Two would be released that same day.[6]

According to producer Michael Gill, Unravel Two was not produced for the Nintendo Switch as "it would have taken another half a year or so."[7]

Reception[edit]

According to review aggregator Metacritic, the game received "generally positive reviews" upon release.[8]
