In addition to PC, Unbox from Prospect Games is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016.

A physics-based platformer set in the near future with self-delivering cardboard boxes, Unbox features a single-player campaign where you can explore a variety of worlds. There’s also a local competitive multiplayer component with lots of maps and modes, including box racing, box battling, and more.

In the trailer, Prospect Games gives you a brief look at the game, as well as the locations.

Prospect Games revealed on Steam that Unbox is influenced by Katamari Damacy:

Unbox is a physics based platformer about rolling cardboard boxes; take part in an epic single player adventure and grab your friends for explosive local multiplayer races and battles!

Unbox was created during the December UE4 Game Jam and inspired by the games we played and loved while growing up. From the competitive and frenetic action of Goldeneye to the expansive exploration of Super Mario 64, there are threads of old school design woven throughout Unbox. Add in some contemporary influences from titles such as Katamari Damacy, Marble Blast Ultra, Noby Noby Boy and you get a game like nothing elseā€¦

According to the developers, Unbox will be out after May 2016.
