A Hat in Time turns to Kickstarter for funding


5:30 PM on 05.29.2013



One my most anticipated titles of the year. A Hat in Time, has just launched a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of $30,000. The game is a 3D platforming collect-a-thon for PC inspired by games like Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, and Donkey Kong 64. There are pretty much zero games that fit the genre on PC, and the genre as a whole has sort of died out recently.

As far as Kickstarters go, game designer Jonas Kærlev has done exactly what I like to see: an informative video, a pie chart detailing where the money is going, and can show off gameplay enough to get me excited. Not that I wasn't already excited, because I totally was. If you're not sure you want to donate yet but are interested in the game, it can't hurt to throw a Steam Greenlight vote their way for now!

A Hat in Time needs to be on your radar

A Hat in Time looks like Wind Waker, is designed like an N64-era platformer, and is coming out for PC. What? I have to write more than that for this post? Hmm, alrighty then. To be honest, I remember seeing A Hat i...more

Open world platformer/space shooter A.N.N.E is a retro buffet

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle? A.N.N.E. is one part platformer, one part shmup, one part RPG. And this year at PAX A.N.N.E. has all its systems in play. Maybe we'll all get to play it this year.more

Addiction allegory Spate's soundtrack is available now

Spate made a bit of a stir with its release last month, if not for its attempt to tackle themes more mature than shooting bullets at beefy dudes, then for its dated representation of absinthe as it exists and is understood to...more

Rain World has competitive slugcat multiplayer and bat attacks

Rain World is still the best. And it's coming to Vita (and more). Jonathan Holmes went and chatted with Rain World's developers at PAX. In the background you can see a very early alpha multiplayer sandbox that looks to be in the vein of Samurai Gunn and Towerfall. You get points for eating flies and lizards and killing each other. Did you know lizard only has one "z"? That's weird.more
