The developer behind Unpacking has revealed that it has hidden a clue to its next game in the organization sim, and no one has picked up on it yet. 

In a recent newsletter, Witch Beam Games revealed that a pixel art rendition of the key art of its next game exists somewhere inside of Unpacking. If you’ve played the very satisfying puzzler, you’ll already know how many items there are inside each room you unpack. So it isn't as easy as simply locating the item to find out what the Australia-based studio is working on next. 

Everything from clothes, books, tech, bathroom utensils, and more can be taken out of boxes and neatly organized in the game, so there’s no telling what we should even be looking for. If it’s the key art we’re seeking out, though, our best bet is to pay extra close attention to posters, as well as CD and DVD covers, just in case. 

If this is the first time you’ve heard of Unpacking, here’s what you need to know. Originally launching back in November 2021, Unpacking is available to play on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, and PS5. The aim of the game is to unpack our lead character’s possessions as they move through different phases of life. 

From their childhood bedroom, college dorm, shared house, and their forever home, we learn about the nameless character through their most cherished household items. Don’t think for a second though that this is simply a chore simulator, as the entirety of Unpacking is a satisfying and at times emotional experience.

Have you tried… the relaxing rhythm of organizing possessions in Unpacking? If not, find out why you should give this indie a shot.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
