According to Playism, the game has a 10-hour campaign that is filled with secrets to uncover. It features NES-inspired retro graphics with varied environments and detailed animations along with a chiptune-style soundtrack. You can expect RPG, puzzle, and cooking elements aimed at keeping the experience fresh.

Here’s a description of the game’s story:

Timothy’s grandfather has passed. But legends tell of a tower so high that it disappears above the clouds, built by a god. If someone manages to climb it to the top, a wish is granted. Join Timothy, armed with hope and courage, on a deadly quest to bring back his grandfather.

Timothy and the Tower of Mu is out now on PC via Steam for $11.99. There is also a demo available for you to experience a snippet of the game for free.
