Everyone likes free stuff. Right now, just for signing up for the Humble Bundle newsletter, you can get a free copy of the game A Story About My Uncle, which normally sells for $15. (You can still get it even if you’re already signed up-just click the button). Make sure to grab your copy soon, because this freebie is only available while supplies last between now and January 12.
A Story About My Uncle is a story-driven first-person platformer. The narrative is delivered as a bedtime story by a father to his daughter. As for the gameplay, you spend most of your time running and jumping over pits between floating islands, using a grappling beam for assistance. There’s no combat, so all of the challenge comes from executing your landings and properly aiming your grapple beam.
On GameSpot’s sister site Metacritic, A Story About My Uncle currently has a rating of 73 out of 100, which places it in the «mixed or average» category. That’s not bad, but even so, you don’t have anything to lose if you’re looking for a new game to play.
This isn’t the only PC game you can get without spending money at the moment. Also available free for a limited time via Steam is a Bomberman-like arena combat game called Blast Zone Tournament. Over on the Epic Games Store, you can grab What Remains of Edith Finch for free. And finally, if you’re an Amazon / Twitch Prime member, you have 11 free PC games waiting for you between now and the end of January.
