Unravel Yarny Bundle
Does not offer in-game purchases, 'loot boxes' or 'battle/season passes'.
Unravel was rated PEGI 7 with violence against fantasy or mythical beings and creatures. The examiner's report expands this rating with the following: Players need to navigate obstacles, solve puzzles and stay clear of environmental hazards. Environmental hazards will include anything from real life animals to pools of acid. When Yarny is caught by one of the animals, he is trashed around rather violently and the screen will fade to black.
There are slightly creepy settings in this game such as dark caves and thunderstorms. In one sequence Yarny almost gets hit by a car, this is a rather abrupt scene that can startle players.
This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE.
With its strong emphasis on visual storytelling, the game has very little text in it, but what there is is high contrast, but fairly small and not adjustable. The 2D platforming style of the game makes it easy to understand where to go next, and interactive objects often have a shimmer to them to highlight them. Additionally, a glowing orb indicates the direction to go by going ahead of you or pointing out key items.
Some pats of the game can be quite dark and low in contrast, and your character's colour can make them blend in as well. To combat this partially, you can adjust the colour of your character, choosing from a range of preset colours that contrast to any background.
