Ahead of the grand unveiling and launch of Unravel Two during EA Play tonight, we visited Coldwood Interactive and spoke to creative director Martin Sahlin about the yarn-themed game.
During our interview, where we talk about the inspirations behind the game and the way the studio approached designing this sequel, we opened by asking about the vision behind it.
Sahlin told Gamereactor how the studio wanted "to make something that felt more playful and bit light-hearted, and that was about creating a new bond rather than focusing on your old bond. So that turned into this little two-player game that's like... it's a two-player single-player game. That sounds weird but that's kind of how it is.
"You always play as two characters; you can play by yourself or you can play it in co-op, but it's about these two little yarn creatures building their bond together and sharing an adventure."
Unravel Two is out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Check out the full interview below for more insight into the game and its development.
