In this episode Gino, Billy, and Pete discuss A Story About My Uncle. We cover how the game leads with story and then rips that story away in favor of first person platforming. We then discuss how the game's level design quickly shuttles the player from mechanic to mechanic without allowing much time for mastery. Pete then brings some literature into the picture by describing how the game's setting recalls "Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor" by Rob Nixon. Also we talk about of frog people. A lot of stuff happens in this show.
