Release Date Announcement!

Hey Unpackers!

It’s official, we finally have a release date!

Unpacking will launch on PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One on November 2, 2021!

Over the course of 8 house moves, discover the story of a character you never see and a story you’re never told. Pull possessions out of boxes, fit them into a new home, and use the items to learn about the life you’re unpacking and create a cozy living space.

Whether you found out about Unpacking years ago or just now, we’re grateful for all of the support you’ve shown us. If you can, don’t forget to wishlist the game on Steam and share the news with your friends, family, community, or even your favorite content creator. As an indie team, it means a lot. But regardless of all that, we just can’t wait for you to finally be able to play the game.

The Australian Game Developer Awards

We’re extremely honored to be nominated for 4 Australian Game Developer Awards! We’re up for:

  • Excellence in Art
  • Excellence in Gameplay
  • Excellence in Accessibility
  • Game of the Year

To have our game next to a lot of stellar titles is so exciting, and we can’t wait for the award show to begin. This year’s AGDAs will be held online on 6 October at 7 PM AEDT on IGEA’s Twitch channel, so if you’re around then, we hope you can tune in! Fingers crossed we walk away with something. 🙂

And that’s it for this dev log! Our heads are down and focused on getting this all done in time, but we’ll have some events and announcements leading up to launch, so please keep an eye out. And if you want to join in on our excitement, you can always find us on Twitter and Discord. Don’t forget to wishlist the game on Steam too, if that’s your preferred platform!
