Zen puzzle game Unpacking sells over 100K units in its first ten days

Australian developer Witch Beam Games has announced that its chilled unboxing puzzle game Unpacking sold over 100K units in its first ten days on sale.

The game originally launched last month, and if you’re not familiar is well worth your time. You play through the various stages of life of one particular character, and help to unpack their possessions in each of their homes over the years. The light puzzle element comes in trying to fit everything into its (roughly) proper place, Marie Kondo style.

Despite the simple sounding premise, the game hides some wonderful storytelling, as you get to learn clues about the life of the main character. You’ll uncover new surprises and twists and turns, despite the fact you never see who you’re playing as. You’re also free to interpret the story however you want, as you’re not explicitly told it. All this, plus a mellow soundtrack lets you experience the game at your own pace.

In a short but sweet blog post marking the milestone, the team thanked its fans for all the support it had received since launch. Witch Beam Games also put together a new trailer for the game, which you can see below. Unpacking is available now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. It’s also available via Xbox Game Pass.
