Developer Gone North Games has partnered with Goat Simulator creator Coffee Stain Studios to publish a Steam version of its first-person adventure game A Story About My Uncle later this month.
Originally released as a freeware university project in 2012, A Story About My Uncle has since expanded into a fully fledged narrative-driven platformer. Gameplay is driven by mid-air momentum, as players use a grappling hook-like power to climb and swing through an array of fanciful suspended environments.
A Story About My Uncle will hit Steam on May 28.

The movement through the world in A Story About My Uncle is a crucial part of it's core gameplay - focusing on swinging yourself through caverns with a grappling hook mechanic that gives the player a wonderful sense of speed and freedom. Soar through a game world with a unique art style and a mysterious story unraveling slowly before you.
A Story About My Uncle started out as a university project, and was quickly nominated for Game of the Year in the Swedish Game Awards 2012.
