Ooh! Are we messing with Adora?





So, a few years back, I was a slacker backer of a kickstarter game because it looked kinda fun, and when it finally came out, A Hat in Time was one of the rare successful kickstarter games, I feel.

The gameplay is interesting, and they vary up the ideas with each world. World 1 is basically a traditional collectathon, on an island overrun by the Mafia of Cooks. World 2 is a Movie Studio where you help two birds film westerns and sci-fi musicals, and ends with two different endings, depending on who wins the fake Oscar. World 3 is a horror game in the woods, and world 4 is an open world free to explore game!

Throughout all this, you're a little girl who is in her spaceship heading home, and her fuel (hourglasses called "time pieces") is scattered out to the nearby planet. The game reached stretch goals to receive two extra post-game worlds, which are a Titanic parody with a Walrus captain and Seal shiphands, and a train station crawling with the cat Yakuza.

The controls are fluid, and the powerups are fun, one of the first hats (powerups that you can swap anytime) you get is a witch's hat that lets you brew exploding potions to throw.

A Hat in Time is on PC, PS4, XBone, and it just came out on the Switch with the first DLC (and a promise that the second DLC will come out soon), so if you have a Switch, you can also play it! (Don't get it on PS4 or XBone, because the DLC isn't out on those consoles for whatever reason)
