A Hat in Time To Be Released In Fall Of 2017

The Kickstarter-funded 3D platformer A Hat in Time has finally received an official release window for Fall of 2017 for Mac and Windows.

A Hat in Time, the collect-a-thon 3D platformer being developed by Danish indie developer Gears For Breakfast, has finally been given a planned release window of Fall 2017.

A Hat in Time claims to be made with the Nintendo 64 era of 3D platformers in mind -- namely those from the golden age of Rare, as well games like Super Mario 64 and Psychonauts. And looks to keep the spirit of those games intact while innovating at the same time. Unlike the recent Yooka-Laylee, however, A Hat in Time does not seek to closely imitate any one game, and merely wishes to make a game that is of the same style and quality that fans of the genre will remember. 

The game revolves around the story of Hat Kid, who must collect fuel for her spaceship in the form of hourglasses in order to find her way back home -- all while dealing with the likes of the Mafia of Chefs and Mustache Girl.

She must accomplish this by jumping and exploring through a number of colorful and intriguing worlds, all with their own stories, upgrading her hat with gameplay-altering badges, and grappling across obstacles while battling baddies with her trusty umbrella.

The game will include both full voice acting and an option for a Banjo-Kazooie-esque voice mumble, along with several music tracks by legendary composer Grant Kirkhope, a two-player co-op mode, 7 total chapters, and many more exciting features.

I'm just your average basement-dwelling eclectic and eccentric video gamer who does his best to make a point, share experiences, and talk to people without swallowing his own tongue. I'm mostly into Platformers and RPG's, but I'll try pretty much anything once, and I'm also trying to find something different and interesting to play, and then share with as many people as I can. I can also beat the entire first world in Super Meat Boy while wearing oven mitts.
