Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure Coming to Xbox


Merge Games, a privately-owned video game publisher and distributor, and Prospect Games, a Manchester-based indie developer, are delighted to announce the imminent release of the 90s-inspired, physics-platformer, UNBOX: Newbie’s Adventure. The Xbox One version is set for release on 26th July 2017.

Assuming the guise of Newbie, a cardboard box, players must bounce and roll their way through glorious 3D worlds filled with scenic vistas, mountains, islands and the like. Newbie’s lot in life is to prove his worth as a sentient, self-delivering package and in doing so save the Global Postal Service from impending bankruptcy.

As a living cardboard box, Newbie can explore epic worlds accepting missions and challenges as he goes. Along the way he’ll meet new friends, discover a plethora of collectables and uncover oodles of super-secrets. Of course, there are unfriendly inhabitants out there too, the Wild Cards and their boss are out to ruin the GPS. Only by completing challenges and collecting reward stamps will Newbie be able to square up to menacing world Bosses and save the day!

In addition to a single-player adventure mode, UNBOX: Newbie’s Adventure also offers classic split-screen action. Up to four friends can gather together and challenge each other in madcap speed races and last-man-standing battles. Endless cardboard carnage awaits as players create their own customizable Tournaments, playing on dedicated multiplayer maps.

Players can customize their cardboard too. Newbie and his friends can dress to impress with a massive range of over 40,000 combinations of accessories. Complete missions and challenges to unlock items and customize your box. A hat, sunglasses, a moustache – which will you choose?

UNBOX: Newbie’s Adventure for Xbox One on 26th July 2017. The game will be available digitally on the Xbox Store priced $29.99, €24.99, £19.99.
