Pinstripe Games has set up a Kickstarter campaign for Jesh, a proposed multiplayer platformer with unique beat-'em-up mechanics.

As the prototype gameplay footage above demonstrates, Jesh's "magnetic combo system" allows players to smoothly transition between attackers to punch through waves of enemies. It almost sounds like a 2D version of Batman: Arkham Asylum's combat -- could be quite interesting in practice!

Originally in development for the Xbox Live Indie Games service, Jesh is now targeted for a retail PC release, following the completion of a fleshed-out prototype. The project will be funded if $1,000 is raised by March 22nd.
