An Easter egg in Unpacking revealed the title of Witch Beam’s next project and it only took fans days to find it once nudged.
The Australian indie studio behind the famous point-and-click story-based game Unpacking recently posted a blog alluding to an Easter egg not found in the game. On the blog, the studio said, “A pixel art rendition of key art from our upcoming game exists somewhere Unpacking, and no one has found it yet! Let us know if you find it!”
Unsurprisingly, this led players to search for the hidden clue, and within days, YouTuber xGarbett managed to find it. It had already been discovered that the game consoles inside Unpacking could be activated and fictional games such as witch sports, Lash N’ Dash and Cacti carts appeared on the screen.
In the second apartment, when interacting with the Wii-like console, it turns out that the game appears, TempPoPo, is not fictional. It may be unprecedented, but the art of TempPoPo appears on the screen and it is the easter egg that the witch beam alluded to in the previous blog post.
Since no one could find the easter egg, I decided to make it myself. The pixel art rendition of their upcoming television game, titled TempPoPo.@UnpackingALife @SanatanaMishra https://t.co/qLPHo9k7xv pic.twitter.com/TXRnm4uX8L

The game is also listed on the Witch Beam website as “Coming Soon”, but there is no official release date or additional information about the game itself yet. The art itself shows a cartoon-style outdoor landscape with a large amorphous pink blotch, which could potentially be the game’s protagonist in some way. The word “tempo” in the game’s title might suggest a music-themed adventure, but we’ll have to wait for more words from Witch Beam to confirm the details.
After the success of Unpackinga moving yet simple game set over two decades of moves with the story itself wide open to player interpretation, fans will be curious and eager to see what Witch Beam does next with it. TempPoPo.
