Future Unfolding

Future Unfolding

Future Unfolding is an action adventure that is all about exploration. Your goal is to unfold the mysteries and solve the puzzles hidden in the beautiful landscapes around you. There are no tutorials, and no one is telling you what to do.

During your journey you encounter different types of wild animals. Some of them are friendly and help you to solve puzzles that open up new areas. Other animals are dangerous — deadly, even. You need to avoid them, or find ways to render them harmless.

Every object in Future Unfolding is made of dynamic particles and can transform, move or blend into something else – even the ground. You can push through the trees in the forest, you can dash through grass to destroy it, and move every stone in the game. All animations are hand-drawn frame-by-frame and use our custom technology to create dynamic 3D shadows.


Coming from three different countries, Mattias Ljungström, Marek Plichta and Andreas Zecher initially met at a university in Germany, before parting ways for a few years. In 2010 they reunited to make the highly regarded puzzle game Spirits. Working remotely from Berlin and Stockholm, they aim to close the gap between stunning visual worlds and experimental, emergent game play.

The vibrant sound design of Future Unfolding was created by Sweden-based composers Thomas Carleberg and Emil Nilsson. The artist, writer and researcher Till Wittwer worked as a writer on the game.
