A Hat in Time
A Hat in Time

Arcade 05 October 2017

A three-dimensional platformer inspired by classics like Banjo-Kazooie, Conker’s Bad Fur Day and Donkey Kong 64, developed by the independent studio Mecha the Slag. A Hat in Time lets us play as Hat Kid, a girl who travels in time, fights villains and solves numerous puzzles. During the campaign, we visit five varied worlds and try to foil the plan of Mustache Girl. Hat Kid uses a special umbrella that acts as e.g. parachute, weapon and even propeller. She must face not only arcade challenges – like environmental obstacles and enemies to beat – but also puzzles of various kinds, which sometimes can only be solved by manipulating time. Aside from a single player campaign, there is a cooperation mode for two players. A Hat in Time uses three-dimensional, cartoonish visuals, based on the console-exclusive hit The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

Hob
Hob

Arcade 26 September 2017

An arcade adventure game developed by Runic Games, an American studio behind the Torchlight series. In Hob, we assume the role of a hero who wakes up in a beautiful but dangerous world on the verge of annihilation. The protagonist does not remember how he came to be in that place, and he will learn the answers for his questions only as the story progresses. What’s interesting, the production does not feature any text or dialogues, which gives a lot of room for interpretation. The core of the platformer gameplay is exploration of the open world and interacting with both encountered creatures and the planet itself, including solving logic puzzles. The items we find and the protagonist’s skills that are discovered in the course of the game prove to be helpful in a dangerous and constantly changing environment. Thanks to them, we can reach previously inaccessible places. Hob features original cel-shading graphics.

The game also features an option to summon alternative versions of Sonic and to control several of them at once — it is the only way to deal with challenges, which are too much for just one Sonic.
