If this is the first time you’ve heard of Unpacking, let us tell you what you’ve been missing out on. This relaxing organization sim follows a character as they go through various stages of life from childhood, college, breakups, and forever homes. The player’s job is to unpack the character’s possessions throughout their various homes and find the best place for all of it.
Upon its release late last year, Unpacking accidentally made a large percentage of its players feel incredibly old as it was discovered that younger players didn’t recognize the Nintendo GameCube-type console in the game and didn’t know where they should place it in the home.
