Sometimes it's fun to revisit some old last gen titles that may have been forgotten. This list consists of a few that I still enjoy today.
Sanctum 2 Developer To Publish A Story About My Uncle
Critically acclaimed indie game A Story About My Uncle has flown somewhat under the radar, but don’t expect that to be the case for much longer. After wowing those who saw the original demo a couple of years ago, Sanctum 2 developer Coffee Stain Studios has stepped in to help the small team at Gone North Games publish their title.
Gone North Games is a newly-founded game studio consisting of the group of university students who developed the demo-version of A Story About My Uncle. Having been nominated for Game of the Year at Swedish Game Awards, Gone North Games decided to form their own company and release the full version of the game on Steam. With the help of Coffee Stain Studios, which in addition to publishing the title is also helping with development, Gone North is bringing this interesting title stateside.
“Coffee Stain Studios is primarily a developer, not a publisher. Other indie devs have approached us before, but we’ve been hard to convince. However, once we got a chance to play a demo of A Story About My Uncle, we were hooked. We just HAD to help these guys finish the development and publish the game on Steam,” said Coffee Stain PR Manager Armin Ibrisagic.
A Story About My Uncle is described as a non-violent FPS with a heavy emphasis on narrative and exploration. Player movement is a critical foundation of the game, as you will spend your time exploring the world with a grappling hook that lets you “soar through a game world with a unique art style and a mysterious story unraveling slowly before you.” Here are a couple of concept art shots to give you a feel for the game.
A Story About My Uncle will be available sometime this year on Steam.
