Hey, I had this same issue and it took me 2 hours to figure out how to fix it. My problem was the resolution for Unravel was too large for my monitor. In order to fix this I had to do a bit of work.

 

The first thing I did was I right clicked on the desktop shortcut for Unravel > Properties > Compatibility > Checked the box that said " Run this program in compatibility mode for:" > Selected windows 8.

 

Next, I went to Origin > Right click Unravel > Game Properties > Advanced Launch Options > Command Line Arguments > "640x480". I did this so I could change the resolution of the game. Once the game opened (successfully) it was super tiny and hard to read. From there I pressed "esc" on my keyboard went to graphics, then changed the resolution to the resolution of my computer screen. And then it was fixed! Hope this helps : )

 

* After you adjust the resolution in game, you can go back to the Command Line Arguments and remove the text (it won't change anything but you can remove it if you want).
