A Story About My Uncle is a non-violent game built with Unreal Engine. Movement is a crucial part of the games core game play. The focus is on swinging through the world with a grappling hook that gives the game a satisfying, although precarious sense of speed and freedom. In this game you don’t have to think about where to go, you just go. The narrative unfolds through a father telling his daughter a bedtime story. The father is the boy protagonist of the story. He narrates his adventures into caves to lost civilizations and harsh, mystical landscapes where he encounters unusual and fantastic creatures. The dangers in the game primarily revolve around unforced errors like missing or miss-timing a jump or using your rocket boots at the wrong moment and overshooting the mark.
A Story About My Uncle is a fast and fun gem available on Steam for $12.99.
