Unpacking Sales Top 100,000 Units in 10 Days - Sales

Publisher Humble Games and developer Witch Beam announced the zen puzzle game, Unpacking, has sold over 100,000 units in its first 10 days available across all platforms.

Unpacking released on November 2, 2021 for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, GOG, and Humble Store.

"I hate moving house, it’s nearly all stress, from the inevitable breakages, to putting your back out trying to jam a washing machine in a space that’s a millimetre too small," said Christian Evans in the VGChartz review of the game. "Fortunately, Unpacking does away with all these stressful elements; no heavy lifting or breaking things, and no rubbish to clear away. Everything unpacked just needs a place to go."

Here is an overview of the game:

Unpacking is a game about the familiar experience of pulling possessions out of boxes and fitting them into a new home. Part block-fitting puzzle, part home decoration, you are invited to create a satisfying living space while learning clues about the life you’re unpacking. Over the course of eight house moves, you are given a chance to experience a sense of intimacy with a character you never see and a story you’re never told.

I remember seeing this being shown off at PAX AUS a couple of years ago and the people showing it were so sweet and friendly talking up the potential ASMR sound design they had been working on. I knew it would do well, but it’s been lovely to see it do even better than expected.
