Today at its pre-E3 press conference, Electronic Arts showed off Unravel, a puzzle-platformer from indie developer Coldwood.
Yarny, the game's protagonist, is a diminutive character who seems destined to forever be described as a yarn version of LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy. Yarny is made of a single thread of twine that, as the game's title implies, unravels as players progress through Northern Scandinavian levels.
In the gameplay trailer below, the little guy uses his own body's twine to swing and climb through the game world and even to catch a ride on a flying kite. Throughout Unraveled, players will have to manage the fact that Yarny is constantly unraveling when moving. That means they'll have to think carefully about what paths they should take and how they can best use the trailing twine to solve puzzles.

Most Xbox fans are already aware that Microsoft is set to make its annual E3 media briefing on Monday, June 15 at 9:30 AM PDT, during which time the console holder will show off its console gaming plans for the second half of 2015 and beyond.

Microsoft has joined chip maker AMD in co-sponsoring the event being put on by the folks over at PC Gamer. Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer will be joined by some game developers to share Microsoft's plans for spelling Xbox as Windows 10.
