Hate this game.
At first it was quite interesting with all the jumping ang grabbing abilities. But then it became really boring. The plot is not so good either. Jump and grab. Jump and grab. Thats about it. Also the edges of mountains are awful. You just fall down where you are meant to jump many times which is extremely annoying. After two hours it drove me up the wall. Grrr.

A very good but challenging short story game.
Where a boy is set out to find his uncle in another world with a cool suit to help overcome obstacles.

Worth the time and money. To get the achievements you will have to spend a lot of time getting them. (Good luck)

A Story About My Uncle is a great little game. Very interesting story line, intriguing sci-fi elements, and quick to get into. I think the frog-people were fun and I don't mind that it was a quick game. It kept me on the edge of my seat as I was hurdling through the air, wondering if I would make it to the next checkpoint. For the 3-4 dollars I paid, this was beyond expectations. 2 thumbs up (if only I could give it that on Steam).

Amazing,


The scenery is breathtaking and the movement is satisfying. I fell in love with the story as if the story was being told to me and not the girl, it's just plain out breathtaking and fun to play. The ending makes you wish that there was more adventures in that big big world the devs have created. DEFINITELY worth a buy,

(TL:DR) Buy the dang game already.

Story is pretty short and there isnt a lot of replay value, but if you can get it on sale Id do it. I think its a great game and enjoyed the casual light story so its a thumbs up from me.

Pretty fun, short fps platformer. I really enjoy the grapple mechanics. My only complaints are the voice acting gets weird at parts, like it was edited together poorly. And sadly to say, that I wish there was some kind of difficulty selection or something to help people get past difficult parts. Its a game about a story, but if you really arent dedicated or amazing at platforming you wont ever see/hear it all. Still a good game, and if its on sale its worth it.

I just finished playing this game and WOW... This game... This game is more then just a game.. It's a adventure. A journey into a whole new world. It's so beautiful, relaxed, atmospheric (...) and something you have never seen before. 12.99 is a very good price for a game like this. Play it until the end, it worth it.

You might call A Story About Mu Uncle a joy-of-movement simulator. It's focused on jumping and grappling huge distances and the short-form resource conservation puzzles involved. It's pretty simple--easy to learn, almost as easy to master--but also satisfying to play, pretty to look at, and over well before it's worn out its welcome.

There's also a saccharine-sweet narrative delivered through some charmingly accent-stilted voice acting. Both can definitely be rather awkward, but ASAMY's story has this comforting sense of earnestness, which helps overcome its stilted delivery and well-tread themes. It feels entirely divorced from adult self-awareness, both for good and ill.

Definitely give this one a look. It's a really enjoyable way to spend 2-3 hours.

9,5/10. this is such a good title, i mean i have no words, i screamed and cursed and wanted to find the person responsible for THAT ONE SNOWY ARENA I GOT STUCK ON FOR A WEEK OR SO but it's so worth it. the story is super cute, all the references left by the authors made me chuckle a couple of times, the visuals are stunning (i must admit, i made so many screenshots i should feel ashamed). and DAMN the gameplay!!! it's interesting, it's intuitive and incredibly colorful!!
i bought the game thinking it's a simple independent little thing but the game was huge and well-done. its only problem? it's kinda short. the game was so fun to play, i literally got mad when it ended :')

Has very nice visuals, and the story is quite interesting. The game play is around 2-3 hours depending on how fast you clear the obstacles.

If you are just going to play this game once then maybe wait for a sale, but if you are the type that likes to do speed runs, this game might be worth the full price.
