Humble Games and Witch Beam have announced that Unpacking, the indie puzzle game that made waves on PC and consoles upon its initial launch, is now available for pre-order on the iOS App Store. The game will land on both iOS and Android devices on August 24th, letting mobile gamers get their hands on the zen title and its intriguing narrative.

In Unpacking, you can look forward to finding a new space for your possessions across a variety of rooms and houses, which, in essence, combines elements of block-fitting with home decoration. You'll need to unleash your interior design prowess as you attempt to prettify your living space - of course, there's the added layer of the protagonist's possessions that you're actually unpacking.

If that sounds like it's right up your alley and you're keen on chilling to more low-key games, why not check out our list of the most relaxing games on iOS?
