Thinking back, I doubt that any of the stories about my uncle would make for a compelling game concept. There was the time he napped through Family Fortunes, but, unfortunately, that never resulted in a magical grappling-hook adventure through a surreal and colourful land of floating islands. Some nephews have all the luck, as this trailer for the upcoming first-person platfomer—being published by Sanctum/Goat Simulator developer Coffee Stain Studios—can attest.
Originally released as a free student-made UDK demo , A Story About My Uncle has now been built upon and transformed into a full release. A narrative-led combat-free game, it stars the nephew of a famous adventurer retracing his steps via a techno-glove grappling hook.
