A Story About My Uncle  



First-person platformer A Story About My Uncle hits Steam this month


4:30 PM on 05.12.2014



A first-person platforming adventure in which you play as a guy looking for his lost uncle might not sound immediately appealing as far as game setups go, but A Story About My Uncle has got a grappling hook and pretty floating islands to use it on. It's winning me over.

I'm also liking the sound of the game's non-violent nature. Shooting things to bits is fun a lot of the time, don't get me wrong, but I don't find it to be fun all of the time. The monster at the end of the video did look threatening, though -- wonder how that situation will be resolved.

Coffee Stain Studios of Sanctum and Goat Simulator fame posted the trailer above, but the studio is actually working on A Story About My Uncle in a publishing capacity -- the developer is Stockholm, Sweden-based Gone North Games.

Review: Nihilumbra

There's a nugget of a solid game here in Nihilumbra. Unlike many of the PlayStation Vita's offerings, it uses the touchscreen in a novel way that doesn't feel tacked on or forced. And the puzzle-platforming is supported well by an ethereal art style, score, and sound design. You just have to wade through a jumble of pseudo-philosophy to get to it.more

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more
