Owen Hibbert of Entertainment Buddha writes: "A Story About My Uncle is the debut title from Gone North Games published by indie machine Coffee Stain Studios. Yes, that would be the same studio responsible for the ridiculous and somewhat infamous game, Goat Simulator. They are also responsible for the excellent Sanctum series, so it’s not all a joke. Their latest game focuses you the player, on a young boy’s journey across the unknown to find his incredibly cool Uncle Fred. I find that I like to see more than the game itself when I start up any title, and so I always have to browse around the menu first. Normally, this becomes a perfect basis for deciding on whether the game is for me. Seeing how much depth a developer puts into the game’s menus often shows its worth, so I was most pleased to see an ‘unlockables’ option. It seemed to feature various cheats, one of which; was called ‘Goat Mode’, which came as no surprise. There were others but I won’t spoil them, all are unlocked by playing through and unlocking collectibles."
