Uncle Lütfi, full name Werter Genossen Lütfi, is one of the main characters in the game and one of the most important, as he gives tutorials on how to play the game, gives the player money when they are running low, provides background, and gives useful tips on the player's journey. At times Uncle can be extremely annoying leading to car crashes, but the player gets the option to abandon him after each rest at a hotel, and at the start of the game.
From the Hungary Update to the Uncle Update, Uncle didn't join you on your journey, and exited the car to stand by the garage after the tutorial was completed. His removal from the journey was due to his often very buggy behavior. But in the Uncle Update he came back, although he is not completely finished, he is considerably less buggy than in the initial release. This update also expanded upon Uncle's features.
