The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo

The age of childhood sleepovers and rumor…

“The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo” may not sound like an obvious title for a spooky tale, but it’s a story well worth the visit.
Set in the simple, in some ways restrictive, world of a child at a sleepover.

You just do normal, everyday activities, but as you go you get interested in the story that plays out subtly. -Many of our real stories play out behind ordinary things.

I’ve always found that stories with a childhood setting well told can be really effective, delving you back into a world of schoolyard rumour and of the folklore of youth that held a power we tend later to forget. An unknown world where anything seemed possible, and you might believe in all sorts of things that later seem further removed from our lives.

A short interactive fiction game, taking around 15 minutes, but with multiple ends, illustrated with scarce but evocative imagery that suits the strange story…
