A Story About My Uncle gets a few things very right. Jumping, swinging, not throwing a gun in your face and forcing you to murder aliens. In the video above, I give my impressions of the game, of a game that's lineage is squarely in the vein of games like Portal and Jumping Flash.

When a game is called 'A Story About My Uncle' you tend to have some expectations. I'm thinking indie game, serious. Serious themes. I'm thinking Gone Home, Dear Esther. I'm thinking slow paced, exploration, voice overs. I wasn't thinking insane first person Mario Galaxy style platforming in an insane, schizophrenic universe. Nope. I wasn't thinking about that at all.
