For $13, players looking for a unique experience will find it here. Keep in mind, there is some trial and error platforming awaiting would-be players that can get nerve-racking after a while, and some of the dialog delivery is off, but the world itself is colorful and interesting and while it may be delivered slightly off at times, the story is rather interesting.

A Story About My Uncle looks, and plays like a labor of love. The story is intriguing, and the environments are gorgeous. $12.99 may seem a little steep for a game that will last about two hours, but it doesn't feel like a cash-grab. It feels like a smaller studio putting everything they have into a game that is going to be on my list for the best of the year. If you have any affinity for platformers, you need to play A Story About My Uncle.

A Story About My Uncle is an incredible game that is greater than the sum of its parts. The story is compelling despite some iffy English and similarly-problematic voice acting, while the graphics are impressive as a whole even with antiquated character models being used.
