A Story About My Uncle – Trailers, Screens, Info – May 14, 2014

A Story About My Uncle, from indie developer Gone North Games, is a non-violent first-person platform adventure for PC about a boy who searches for his lost uncle. It’s a search that leads him to a world he couldn’t have imagined existed.

Movement is a crucial part of the game’s core gameplay and is focused on swinging through the game world’s beautiful scenery using a grappling hook. This gives the player a wonderful sense of speed and freedom.

As you uncover clues as to your uncle’s whereabouts, you’ll meet fantastical creatures that will help you on your journey.

A Story About My Uncle started out as a university project and was quickly nominated for Game of the Year in the Swedish Game Awards 2012. The game is now being remade, finished and polished. It will launch on May 28th for PC.

Key features

  • Grappling hook: An empowering mechanic that gives you a sensation of speed, flow and vertigo like you’ve never experienced before.
  • Explore the world: Visit a wonderful and exciting world, from paradisal caves to lost civilizations and harsh, mystical landscapes.
  • Emphasis on story: While searching for your uncle you will meet creatures with stories and fates of their own. Take your time to explore the world to dig deeper into the narrative.
  • Non-violent: A Story About My Uncle is a First Person game, but it is driven by non-violent gameplay and a heavy emphasis on story and atmosphere.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
