Indie developers Gone North Games has released the first teaser trailer for A Story About My Uncle, a "non-violent first person platformer" that began life as a short demo created as a student project and is now being fleshed out into a full game:
A Story About My Uncle is a non-violent First-Person platform adventure game built in the Unreal Engine. It is a story about a boy who searches for his lost uncle and ends up in a world he couldn’t imagine existed.
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 short demo has been picked up by the gaming media and has been available for free download since 2012. It is now set for a release in summer 2014, and will be published by Coffee Stain Studios (Sanctum series & Goat Simulator).
“We’re really excited to bring this game to Steam! At first we were sceptic to publish games we haven’t made ourselves, but once we tried out A Story About My Uncle, we were hooked! They really nailed the sense of speed, freedom and adventure in the game, and we can’t wait to bring this story-based, non-violent indie game to Steam.
