Conan, hats and prison-breaks for $12 on Humble today

Run, jump, grab a thousand gubbins, escape from prison guards and hear the lamentations of their women - sounds like a fun weekend. Humble have just unveiled their next three 'early unlock' games for their Humble Monthly subscription service, and it's an impressive little trio. $12 gets you Funcom's survival sandbox Conan Exiles, Gears for Breakfast's Mario-esque platformer A Hat In Time and Mouldy Toof's jailbreak…

A Hat In Time adds mod support, hosts $1k mod contest

Some controversy around a voice-actor cameo aside, A Hat In Time was widely regarded as a lovely little thing when it launched last year. A proper Mario Sunshine-esque platformer for PC, full of weird characters, clever level design and catchy music. For most games in the genre, things would end there, but developers Gears for Breakfast have greater ambitions. While it's been in beta testing for…

Feature: A charming throwback

A Hat In Time review

Where Yooka-Laylee attempted to revive Rare’s Banjo-Kazooie formula, A Hat in Time [official site] strikes at a different vein of nostalgia. The 3D platformer attempts to split the difference between the open-ended adventuring of Super Mario 64 and the more guided point-by-point platforming of Super Mario Galaxy. The result is a work of obvious grace and imagination that never attempts to rise above its obvious…

N64-y platformer throwback A Hat In Time is now out

Hats are brilliant. I primarily use them to disguise my massive fivehead, for instance, but hats can also bless their wearers with amazing powers. At least they can in A Hat in Time [official site], Gears for Breakfast's crowdfunded N64-style collectathon platformer. Hats that blow stuff up, hats that let you gaze into other dimensions -- is there anything they can't do? A Hat in…

Humble launches own publishing label with solid lineup

It's still weird to me that the Humble empire was spawned by folks who started out (and quickly returned to) making games about kicking rabbits in the face. Humble is becoming even bigger now, this week announcing the launching of an initiative to fund and publish games. They've announced an initial lineup of seven games, including ooh! Scorn! That FPS-adventure where everything's guts and gristle.…

Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature,…

3D Platformer Recalls GameCube Happyface: A Hat In Time

First of all, A Hat In Time is a great name. Second of all, Gears For Breakfast is an excellent name for a developer. Third of all, looking a lot like Zelda: Windwaker and attempting to emulate N64 collect-me-do 3D platformers is the right thing to do. Fourth, fifth and infinityth of all, there's obviously a Kickstarter.

(Wind) Waking Memories: A Hat In Time

If the world was a good and just place (that just so happened to be molded in my image, but I don't see how that tarnishes the goodness and justness of it), everyone would've hopped aboard Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker's artistic bandwagon lion man boat thing instead of bee-lining straight for the uncanny valley of eternal brownness. It's just so rich with gorgeous,…
