Unravel Two is a puzzle platformer with action-adventure elements, much like its predecessor, except this latest iteration takes steps towards a more multiplayer-centric experience and puts more work into its puzzle and problem-solving mechanics. The game sees two Yarnys — adorable characters made of bundled-up yarn — on an adventure through some stunning scenery to find their way home. Local co-op, a focus on creative problem solving, and a family-friendly story that centres around forming bonds make this an excellent game to play with younger kids or your significant other, although it is perfectly pleasant as a single-player experience as well.
Unravel Two is on sale for US$1.99 during the Steam Winter Sale until January 5, 2023.
A controller is strongly recommended for some games on this list — particularly Hob and Unravel Two — and if you’re on the hunt for one, the 8BitDo Pro 2 Wired Controller has some great retro appeal and is available on Amazon.
