Modder Superior: Trying on A Hat In Time mods for size

This week, we're breaking from delving through our back catalogues in favour of a recent game with a still-growing mod community. A Hat In Time is still one of the better 3D platformers on PC, only improved by two big chunks of DLC recently. Developers Gears For Breakfast have gone the extra mile on mod integration, with user-made worlds accessible from a special room in…

A Hat In Time goes online with cats in today’s Nyakuza Metro DLC

We all know that the internet was built to send cat pictures, which is exactly what A Hat In Time wants you to be doing in the Nyakuza Metro DLC, out today. While free for original Kickstarter backers, it's the Mario-like platformer's first fully paid DLC for the rest of us, but does a lot to justify that price tag. A large new free-roam city…

A Hat In Time adds cat crimes and fifty-player online in its next DLC

Good Mario-style 3D platformers aren't too common on PC, so I'm happy to see A Hat In Time still expanding. Announced today, the Nyakuza Metro DLC lands on May 10th, and adds two big new things to Gears For Breakfast's collectathon platformer. First is a whole new story zone, the titular Nyakuza Metro, a neon Tokyo-inspired railroad hub, infested with cat burglars and other felonious…

A Hat In Time’s new DLC is free today and turns up the heat on an arctic cruise

A Hat In Time might play second fiddle to Super Mario Odyssey these days, but there's strong praise in that faint damning. Gears For Breakfast crafted a cheerful, bouncy little romp of a platformer, full of shiny gubbins to grab and strange characters to meet. It's just a little on the short and easy side - or was. Seal The Deal adds another story chapter…

Co-op is coming to A Hat In Time, plus DLC featuring new challenges and marine mammals

Even if Mario's resurgence stole a bit of its thunder, A Hat In Time remains one of the PC's better 3D platformers, if a bit short and easy. The upcoming Seal The Deal DLC - due out on September 13th - addresses both points. Developers Gears For Breakfast are adding a new chapter to the story (set aboard an arctic cruise liner run by seals) and an…

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…

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.
