My uncle hid his nudie mags under his bed. He was alright in my book.

This particular uncle hid some tadpoles in an alternate dimension that become sentient and stuff. That's pretty rad in my book.

Puberty being the harsh tyrant of hormones it is, I'd still stick with the former's secret stash.

A Story About My Uncle is a puzzle game, that takes place when a father tells a bedtime story to his daughter of the Adventures He went on to find his missing Uncle Fred, who was also a world travelling adventurer. The obstacles are not to difficult, you acquire a grappling hook and upgrades making it easier to traverse various terrains. As you work your way through different levels, the father narrates in the background. There are collectibles you can get and the game offers trading cards. It isn't a bad puzzle game.

A Story About My Uncle
brief review by David =D
I was mesmerized from the start! The feeling that I was the player never left me.

A Story About My Uncle is truly incredible. It's an adventure I'm glad I experienced.
Ben Griffin said this about it, "It's pure children's adventure fantasy."

  • challenging platform navigation
  • awesome gadgets (grapple+charged jump+rocket boots)
  • amazing environments
  • hidden collectibles
  • non-violent (this was a first for me, too! :P)
  • difficult achievements
  • trading cards

To all of you thinking about picking up A.S.A.M.U;
I definitely recommend this to adventure/platformer/indie lovers + anybody seeking something new & a bit out of the ordinary!

What to say about this piece of art? Not much... just that it is one of the most extraordinary games I've ever delightfully played. It's like our inner child awakens to the story of the game and its magicness. Buying ASAMU is imperative.

Do it, child! Go find your Uncle!
