Live Stream – Playing Unravel

Unravel (@unravel_game) is coming to Xbox One on 09 February, but if you have EA Access you will be able to play the game starting tomorrow (04 February) – five days before its official release.

Unravel introduces Yarny, a new, lovable and endearing character made from a single thread of yarn, that slowly unravels as you move. Inspired by the unique and breath-taking environments of Northern Scandinavia, Unravel is a visually stunning, physics-based puzzle platformer.

I will be teaming up with Laura (@lauralollipop) – regular co-host of the Major Nelson Radio podcast – and streaming the game. I have a few codes to give away, so watch for a chance to win Unravel + 30-day EA Access code so you can play the game before its released. One lucky winner will receive this Yarny, courtesy of EA.

Yarny

The stream is scheduled for Thursday, 04 February at 2p ET / 11a PT and will be streamed live on my Twitch channel (or watch it below once it goes live).
