With no timers or scores, you get to know about each character through their possessions at your own pace. You'll learn their likes and dislikes and watch how they change throughout their life. Although this sounds easy, there is a slight challenge as some items have a designated spot you need to find to complete the level.
With the lack of dialogue and narrative prompts, Unpacking is a great for children and families. It's fun to use your imagination to construct the lives of the people you help unpack, filling in the gaps the game leaves. Following an anonymous character through their life and seeing them at their most transitory stages (i.e. moving to a new home) allows children to come to terms with growing up and adulthood.
