20 Games Like A Story About My Uncle()

INK is a fast-paced platformer about using colorful paint to uncover your surroundings.

INK has a similar feel to hardcore platformers like Super Meat Boy. The object of each level is to defeat all of the enemies in the room (if any) and reach the goal. However, the terrain is invisible to the player. The player can discover terrain by physically bumping into it, or by performing a double jump. The double jump sprays paint bullets out of the player and increases the player's awareness of their surroundings. If the player happens to bump into spikes or falls to their death, paint will also shoot out from the player's last position. The room isn't wiped clean after death so that the player has an easier time navigating after multiple attempts!

"Feist is a beautiful, poetic and action packed game, with an enchanting and spooky atmosphere. It tells the story of a small creature surviving in a mysterious, hostile world. Once players escape the crude crate the strange, lumbering beasts used for a trap, players journey through sprawling forests, mountains, caves, and swamps, brought to life in a cinematic physical-effects style reminiscent of Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal, or Hedgehog in the Fog.

The dreamlike world of Feist is a striking and mesmerizing place, but dangerous AI-controlled enemies keep pushing the players toward their fate. Enemies and traps, without scripted sequences, interact and produce surprising emergent consequences, creating a physics-driven environment with its own rules. The gorgeous, lush backgrounds are brought to life by a haunting and restrained soundtrack."

Ultimate Chicken Horse is a party platformer that flips between strategic level building and intense platforming.

Build the level by placing blocks, projectiles, traps, and hazards, then try to reach the flag. If you can make it but your friends can’t, you get points! Repeat the process as you place more platforms to make the level crazier and more dangerous, and try to screw your friends over without screwing yourself. The result of this unique game flow is that every player becomes a designer and a player at once, responsible for creating dastardly levels without ever feeling like they're really going into "level editor" mode.

You score points for reaching the end of the level (as long as at least one other person fails), for getting there first, for placing traps that stopped other players, for being the only one to reach the end, or for picking up coins placed by players and bringing them to the end of the level.

Unbox is 3D platformer where the player is a cardboard box who must bounce and roll, through mountains and islands alike, to deliver themselves for the greater good of the Global Postal Service, or GPS. This can include racing against a clock, solving puzzles, and a lot of fun with physics, which often involves causing mayhem by knocking things over or blowing them up. The game also has a strong local multiplayer element, for full split-screen enjoyment, including a variety of different challenges.

To save themselves from bankruptcy, the GPS have somehow created living boxes that can deliver themselves to customers all over the world, to save on human staff. In Unbox, you will play as their latest creation, Newbie, and it is your job to complete the test islands, proving your worth as a sentient, self-delivering package.
