A Story About My Uncle: A journey about discovery

Posted on February 22, 2015 at 6:25 pm

Sanctum and Sanctum 2 came as a real surprise to many; first person tower defense games with a hint of first person shooting. The games were a hit; selling thousands and prompting a series of similar games to come out thick and fast. The bigger surprise was that Coffee Stain Studios, the team behind the two Sanctum games, would grow enough to publish games from other studios.

A Story About My Uncle started life as a student project, submitted to various competitions around the world. Coffee Stain Studios saw the project and got the guys on board as soon as possible. The game has an unusual first person narrative about the quest for a lost uncle through a magical and mysterious world. Along the way the player meets all kinds of creatures with stories of their own, and one or two who try to help. The game is first person and sees the player swinging between objects to progress through the beautiful levels, and has a high skill ceiling so players are encouraged to master their movements to be as fast as possible.
