Unpacking is out now!


It’s finally here.

Unpacking is out now on Steam, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox!

Unpacking is a zen game about the familiar experience of pulling possessions out of boxes and fitting them into a new home. Part block-fitting puzzle, part home decoration, you are invited to create a satisfying living space while learning clues about the life you’re unpacking. Over the course of eight house moves, you are given a chance to experience a sense of intimacy with a character you never see and a story you’re never told. After 3 years of development, we’re so excited to finally share our cozy game with the world! We hope you love it as much as we do.

There are a ton of ways you can help us out other than just buying the game too. Especially for a small indie studio, we also appreciate things like:

  • Spreading the word to family, friends, and even your favorite streamer
  • Leaving a review on Steam
  • Sharing our news on social media

But no pressure – we’re grateful to have you here at all! And if you love the soundtrack, it will be available at launch wherever you get your music (Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp, etc), and of course on Steam.

Share Your Rooms!

A fun new feature of the game is our built-in playback and GIF maker feature. This allows you to easily capture and share your unpacking process with the community.

One of our favorite things is seeing your creativity and organizational skills shine. Please feel free to tag us on Twitter @UnpackingALife if you end up using the feature. You can also tag us if you stream the game – we might even pop in and say hi!


Finally, if you end up having any burning questions about our development process or Unpacking in general, we have two AMAs lined up. You can catch us on either:

And of course, you can also join our community over on Discord if you’re looking for like-minded unpackers.

Whew, that’s all for now. Happy unpacking, and thanks again from all of us at Witch Beam!


Wren, Victoria, and the Witch Beam team
