Unpacking is an easy-going puzzle-esque game that follows the main character as she goes through real life changes, stories told in the form of moving into (and out) of eight different houses. From leaving the college, to moving in with her partner, to moving back home, you get to visually see how much her life alters while going from very little possessions, to far more high quality possessions that easily fill the biggest house she's lived in. None of the rooms are terribly difficult so you can expect a relaxing time while you play through the game. 


Step 1: Play through each year 

You can go for the miscellaneous trophies in this step as well (see Step 2) but for the most part, you'll just be wanting to complete each Chapter. They start off light and progressively get more in depth but you shouldn't really have any issues figuring out where any of the items go. There are only 2 that might give you an issue: the potato peeler (see Get smart trophy_bronze.png) and one photo in 2012 (see Home cooking trophy_bronze.png). These two items are just a bit pesky but everything else is pretty easy to figure out. 

After this step, you will have earned:

Make some memories trophy_bronze.png 
Beginning trophy_bronze.png 
Get smart trophy_bronze.png 
Fellowship trophy_bronze.png 
Too cool trophy_bronze.png 
Home cooking trophy_bronze.png 
Independence trophy_bronze.png 
Green thumb trophy_bronze.png 
Love trophy_bronze.png 
No place like home trophy_silver.png 

Step 2: Cleanup

After you complete each Chapter, you can replay it at any time. You have the option to completely reset each individual Chapter or just jump back in to the finished room. For this step, it's highly recommended you don't reset your progress so you can easily find the items you need to interact with. You can exit out of each Chapter as soon as the trophy(ies) unlock so don't worry about have to save anything. 

After this step, you will have earned:

Secret trophies

  • Found your camera.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    This trophy will automatically unlock as you progress through the first Chapter. You'll at some point need to unpack a polaroid camera in the bedroom. As soon as you place it down, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Solved the cube.

    This can be earned in Chapters 1997 and 2004. As you're unpacking items, you'll at some point unpack a Rubik's Cube. When you place it down, hover over it with your cursor and keep pressing circle.png until it's been fully solved (should only take 3-4 hits). If it doesn't unlock for you right away, just cycle through solving it (just keep pressing circle.png):
  • Turned on a music player.

    This can be earned in any Chapter. As you unpack each house, you'll come across some sort of boombox/music player. When you place it down, hover over any of them and press circle.png to push the buttons down (you only need to interact with one of them, not all 8). You only need to push 1 or 2, depending on how many buttons the players actually have. When you do, the trophy will unlock.

    This is what each of them looks like in each Chapter.

    1997 (Bedroom):

    2004 (Bedroom):

    2007 (Living Room):

    2010 (Living Room):

    2012 (Bedroom):

    2013 (Living Room):

    2015 (Living Room):

    2018 (Bedroom, there are 2 here):
  • Unpacked 1997.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    This will unlock once you've completed the first Chapter, 1997. This will be the easiest to complete since it's just one room (the bedroom). Once you've placed everything in its right place, interact with the star on the bottom right and when you take the album picture of the room, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Made the mannequin dab.

    This can be done in either 2004 or 2007. As you're unpacking, you'll come across art mannequin that, when you press circle.png while hovering over it, will pose in different stances. You need to press circle.png until the model poses in a "dab" stance:

    The mannequin in 2004 is located in the Bedroom and the mannequin in 2007 is located in the Dining Room. Once you get either of these to pose in the dab stance, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Put the cookie jar out of reach.

    This can be earned in 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013. As you're unpacking the kitchen, you'll unbox a Cookie Jar. You need to place the Cookie Jar on the highest shelf in the kitchen to get this trophy. Do keep in mind that the highest shelf will almost always be on top of the cupboards, not within the actual cupboard itself:
  • Put an electronic item somewhere dangerous.

    You can earn this in any Chapter outside of 1997. There are two ways you can get it, depending on which Chapter you're playing. In almost all of the Kitchens will be a Toaster (the actual graphic of the Toaster will vary from Chapter to Chapter). You need to take the Toaster to the Bathroom and place it in the bathtub:

    Alternatively, a few Chapters will have a purple flat iron that you need to put away in the Bathroom. If you come across one of these, simply put it in the sink:

    While you won't electrocute yourself, you will earn this trophy once you've done either setup. 
  • Unpacked 2004.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    This trophy will unlock when you've put everything away in its right place for the year 2004. It should be easy enough to find the proper place for each item save for the pesky potato peeler. It's kind of hard to make out but it looks like this:

    It needs to go in a drawer in the Kitchen. That should be the only item you really get stuck on. It'll be making an appearance multiple times so just keep in mind where it goes. 
  • Turned on a game console.

    This can be earned in 2007, 2010, 2013, 2015 and 2018. In some of these Chapters, you'll unpack what looks like a GameCube (in the other Chapters it'll already be unpacked). If you're unpacking it, you need to place the gaming console on the TV stand:

    When it's on the TV Stand, hover over the console and press circle.png to turn it on. You'll know when you've done it right when the TV turns on with the Cactus Carts game. Once it's on, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Found a head to wear the hat.

    This trophy can only be earned in Chapter 2007. As you're unpacking boxes, you'll unpack a green baseball cap. In the Dining Room, on the very top shelf, are two mannequin heads. You need to put the hat on the left mannequin (the one that doesn't have the wig):

    Once the hat has been placed, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Unpacked 2007.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    This trophy will unlock once you placed all of the items in Chapter 2007 in their rightful places and interacted with the star in the bottom right. 
  • Tidied up his underwear drawer.

    This can only be earned in Chapter 2010. This will be the first Chapter in which you can move items around that were already placed in the house before you got there. Make your way to the Bedroom and open up the closet. Before you start unpacking your stuff, open up the drawers and you'll find that your new boyfriend's undies are not very organized. Take them all out and neatly place them in one drawer (there will be 12 pairs total):

    Once they're all organized into one drawer, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Placed all the coffee-making equipment on the counter.

    This can only be earned in Chapter 2010. As you're unpacking all of the Kitchen items, you need to put all of the items associated with making coffee on the island table. The items below are what you'll need:
    • Coffee Pitcher
    • Coffee Strainer
    • Espresso Machine
    • Coffee Pot
    • Electric Coffee Grinder
    • 4 White Coffee Cups
    • 1 Purple Cup (it's unconfirmed if this is needed because it actually belongs in the Bathroom but counts as a Kitchen item as well)
    • Pitcher
    • Bag of Coffee Grinds
    • Sugar
    Once all of the items are on the counter (and only these items), the trophy will unlock.
  • Unpacked 2010.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    This trophy will unlock once you've unpacked all of the boxes in Chapter 2010 and placed all of the items in the correct locations. 
  • Rescued a forgotten poster.

    This can only be done in Chapter 2012. As you're unpacking all of the boxes, make your way to the Bedroom and open up the cupboard. There will be a rolled up poster inside:

    Take the poster out of the cupboard and place it anywhere on any wall in the Bedroom:

    Once it's on the wall, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Unpacked 2012.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    This trophy will unlock once you unpack everything in Chapter 2012 and place the items in the correct spots. There is one item that can be a bit confusing for this one. If you've been following along with the story, you'll get the gist that you've just gone through a breakup recently. When you're unpacking the Bedroom, there will be a few pictures and drawings that you need to put up on a corkboard. One of the pictures can't go up on the board and will need to be tucked away in the cupboard, out of sight and out of mind. 
  • Set the time on the microwave.

    This can be earned in 2013, 2015 and 2018. Each of these Chapters will add a Microwave to the Kitchen. You need to hover over the Microwave and press circle.png to change the time on the clock. Just keep pressing circle.png until the time can't be changed any more and when it stops, this trophy will unlock. 
  • Wrote an equation with fridge magnets.

    This can be earned in 2013, 2015 and 2018. In addition to your new Microwave for 12:00 trophy_silver.png, you'll also gain a few new magnets. Included in these are the numbers "1", "2" and "3", then a "+" and finally an "=". You need to rearrange the magnets so they read "1 + 2 = 3":

    Once you've made the right equation, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Unpacked 2013.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    This trophy will unlock once you've unpacked all of the items in Chapter 2013 and placed them in their correct locations. 
  • Found a place for every plant.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    You will earn this as you make your way through Chapter 2015. All of the plants need to be unpacked (or at least moved) so you'll have to "find a place" for all of them to finish the Chapter. If you're running out of room, keep in mind that the smaller plants can fit on the windowsills so you can store them out of the way. 
  • Love


    Unpacked 2015.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    This will unlock once you've unpacked all of the items in Chapter 2015 and placed everything in the correct place. 
  • Built a tower out of baby blocks.

    You will need to get this in Chapter 2018. In this Chapter, a new Baby Room will be included in your new house. As you're unpacking the room, you'll unpack quite a few wooden blocks. You need to stack any five of these blocks into a tower:

    Once your tower is complete, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Put the tiger and pig side by side.

    You can get this in either 2015 or 2018. The Pig stuffed animal should look familiar since it's been with you since Day 1. The Tiger is a new stuffed animal that is added to your belongings in 2015. When they're both unpacked, place them anywhere in the house as close to each other as possible:

    Once they're snuggled up with each other, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Flushed every toilet.

    You will need to start working on this trophy starting in Chapter 2004. There are eight toilets in the game that you need to flush. In each Chapter, there will be one toilet that you need to flush except for Chapter 2018 which will have two toilets. You don't have to wait for the audio to finish and can switch rooms as soon as you've flushed the toilet. Once you've flushed all eight, the trophy will unlock. 
  • Unpacked 2018.

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    This trophy will unlock when you've unpacked all of the items in Chapter 2018 and placed all the items in their correct locations.
