What pleasantly surprised me is that A Story About My Uncle doesn't focus exclusively on the story itself, but puts great emphasis on the simple yet engrossing narrative. This results in a high sense of immersion which becomes apparent only at the very end of the narration. ASAMU is certainly a non-violent interactive story videogame that pushes the genre one step forward, through its platforming mechanics. For anyone who thought Dear Esther as a surprising alternative to conventional gaming, ASAMU will certainly not disappoint.
As the first game from Gone North, A Story About My Uncle is a great start for the studio. Effective storytelling and dynamic gameplay mechanics are the best side of this game. However there are some bugs, but still ASAMU is worth playing.
After every moment of enjoyable flight or other dynamic event comes a segment that requires patience and counting seconds to time the next jump right. It’s a pity that instead of A Story About Jumping Around Like A Maniac we got such a drag. [8/2014, p.71]
The game is totally amazing. With so much awesome games released is extremely hard to make an original title these day, but they made it! Graphics are beautiful, the gameplay is fun, challenging and unique and the story and storytelling are really good. The game is made with passion and enthusiasm and so the result is a masterpiece! This game is definitely a must, and I can't wait for some kind of sequel.
Overall, I don't recommend it because it's very short, it's get very boring early. I wasn't so interested in the final scene - which is by the way, not so satisfying - to get to the end of the game. The atmosphere provided by the story was good.
Мир и история конечно хорошие. Приятно вспомнить. Но сложными прыжками всё испортили. Иногда по 20 раз приходилось некоторые места проходить. Игра получилась про прыжки, а не про историю. Одни маты у меня были :-)
А история и правда хорошая.
