Humble Bundle, an online videogame store, has partnered with Gears for Breakfast, an indie development studio, to bring out ‘A Hat in Time’ to Xbox One this Fall, priced at $29.99.
In A Hat in Time, you play as a space-travelling girl with a big top hat. While minding her bees’ wax, an accident causes all her fuel, the Time Pieces, to scatter across a nearby planet. Hat Kid must now jump, fight, and stitch new hats down below to fuel her ride back home.
From the first “boop!” Hat Kid utters, your heart will smile in this brilliantly scripted and professionally voice-acted adventure. You can expect adorable interactions with the friendly folks at Mafia Town, silly banter from Mustache Girl, and more. Some locals will also offer you badges to power up the hats you stitch, making you more powerful and 50 shades cuter than before!
The hats themselves have game-changing abilities that just beg you to revisit levels and to reach places you could not before. The abilities include a witch hat which allows her to brew explosive potions, a wooden ghost mask that allows her to peek into other dimensions, and a speedy hat to help you become the fastest speedrunner in the world. Speedruners and novices alike will have several abilities to exploit Hat Kid at the start of the game, too. She’ll be able to climb, wall jump, double-jump, air dash, and more.
A Hat in Time is a true labor of love from all of us. We look forward to telling you more about this cute-as-heck 3D platformer as we approach our fall release, said Publishing Lead Humble Bundle John Polson.
