Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Psychonauts! These kind of 3D platformers are no longer made, but people still want to play them! A Hat in Time aims to bring the genre back!

Travel with Hat Kid as she tries to recover the hourglass-shaped fuel for her spaceship! Race to collect them all, as everyone else on the planet are hunting for them as well, including the evil little Mustache Girl!

Upgrade your hat by attaching badges to it and defeat everyone in your way with your trusty umbrella!

Who made the game?

The game is developed by Gears for Breakfast!

What are the minimum requirements?

This is difficult to say! If you're able to run Unreal Tournament 3, then you should be fine, as A Hat in Time is developed on the same engine! However keep in mind the beta is unoptimized and may be more demanding compared to the final release of the game.

When does the game release?

To-be-announced! The Beta Build was released this year (2015). We will announce the release date on Kickstarter, Facebook and Twitter so please follow us to keep up to date.

Is the game on Steam Early Access?

No! You will receive a Steam-redeemable key when you preorder the game, but the game will not be sold on the Steam storefront until release.
