"Gaming is a powerful platform, able to inspire players and touch their hearts," creative director Martin Sahlin said in a statement. With Unravel, we're hoping to do just that. Yarny's quest is to mend broken bonds and the yarn represents the love and connection between people. Along the way, we'll test your cleverness with environment-based puzzles inspired by our home in Northern Sweden."

In Unravel, you'll use Yarny's thread to do things like swing across a gap or rappel down a tree. Those are basic examples, but the game will also challenge you to use the thread in "clever and creative ways," according to EA.

A handful of new Unravel screenshots were also released today; you click through the images in the gallery below to see them all.
