This is the one hundred thirty-fifth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality.

There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

This random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality is climbing ever upwards into view. It’s HATCH, by Rubeki, and its tagline in the bundle reads:

Climb your way to the top of a strange tower in a strange land

As everyone knows, strange towers are the best of all things to climb.
