My Game Long Name?
I entered the uninstaller and saw a weird program called "My Game Long Name".
Trying to uninstall it says something about Antichamber. The logo does seem a bit like it's related to Unreal Technology. I'm asking you to check if you have that program too (control panel->uninstall a program, then check if it is there on the list). Just wanna know if it's ok to remove and what it does.

That's not how you're supposed to uninstall Steam games anyway. Go to your Steam Library, right-click on the game in the list, and click on "Delete Local Content..." in order to uninstall Steam games. This insures that Steam has a backup of any saves or anything else before it uninstalls the game.

But to answer your question about what "My game long name" is....

I read it before and it just confused me more. I don't want to uninstall Antichamber, I want to know if that program comes with Antichamber. Can you check that for me?

What is My Game Long Name?
If you directly run an Epic game installed with a custom installer, the user needs Administrator access to run the game for the first time. If this occurs, an uninstall entry gets created in Windows Add/Remove Programs with the name 'My Game Long Name'.

Epic game=UDK (basically); so this is Antichamber, or any other Unreal Engine game you have.
custom installer=steam installer or an installer created by the dev himself

Essentially, you didn't have the correct version of Unreal Engine installed with any previous game, so it had to create a fake "game" in order to install the engine. It doesn't come with Antichamber, but since you have UAC (User Access Controls, the little thing that pops up and says "are you sure you want to...") enabled on your Win7 or Win8 machine, it wasn't allowed to download the engine to the game's default directory.

You could try uninstalling it, and then if Antichamber doesn't run, just verify the game cache and it should re-download for you.
How to verify the game cache:

I personally recommend not uninstalling it though. Apparently it's part of the Unreal Engine, so you probably need it in order to run any UDK games. I have 3 copies of "My Game Long Name" in my list of programs, and this is probably due to the fact that I have multiple copies of Antichamber, Unreal Tournament, as well as the Unreal Development Kit (UDK). These three programs all run on different versions of the Unreal Engine, and so I believe "My Game Long Name" is just an easier way for UDK to determine which version of the engine to use for which software.

This is just an assumption though, I don't actually make games so I don't know for sure.

When you run an UDK game for the first time it will check for, and create if it does not exist, an uninstall entry for the game. It hosts some values for the EULA check. UDK couldn't care less about where you obtained the game from, and whether it's installed with an installer or not. It will create the entry no matter what. I don't remember off hand if Antichamber creates a properly named uninstall entry. Just leave it, since it's going to recreate it anyway if you delete it.
