A Hat in Time is a three-dimensional platformer set in a cheerful, cartoonish world. It has been developed by independent developing studio of Mecha the Slag.
The game focuses on adventures of a little girl known as Hat Kid, whose main occupation is traveling through time, beating villains and solving puzzles. She travels throughout five varied worlds and tries to foil the plans of the Mustache Girl.
Developers of A Hat in Time for PC, PS4 and XONE took inspiration from classic platformers, like Banjo-Kazooie, Conker’s Bad Fur Day and Donkey Kong 64. Just like these titles, the game focuses not only on overcoming obstacles and enemies, but also exploring locations and collecting items. Hat Kid has an umbrella that can be used as e.g. weapon, parachute and even a prop. Clearing levels requires not only arcade skills, but also wits, as puzzles appear regularly. The heroine also has limited abilities to manipulate time, which is sometimes required to solve puzzles.
Aside from the single player campaign, A Hat in Time offer cooperation mode for two people, which requires strict cooperation from the players.
PC, PS4 and XONE’s version of A Hat in Time was developed using Unreal Engine 3. Creators decided to go with cartoon-like visuals, based on the style of console hit The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
