Level Design Lobby - Unpacking Level Design #123

With not being able to play many AAA games recently I have been playing that of Indie and Mobile. Two of those games are 'Unpacking' and 'Assemble with Care'. Seeing how these two differ from the usual games I play I thought it would be great to break down how they tackle level design and delivering their narrative.
