Developed by two brothers (as the dev team name suggests), Climb to the Top of the Castle is an upcoming platformer with a huge dollop of old-school inspiration. As if you hadn't already guessed, your mission is to climb to the top of the castle.

From what I can see in the above trailer, the going looks pretty tough. I'm loving the comic-like graphical style too. Apparently there will be multiple difficulty levels, bonus modes and special arena battles to contend with. It doesn't say which platforms it's coming to, but a quick Google search seems to suggest it's console-bound. I'm sure, however, that the duo would consider a PC release if we're vocal enough about it...

The game is close to being complete, but needs your hard-earned cash to get it over the final hurdle. If you feel like putting a little money down, head over to 8-Bit Funding and check it out.
