A Hat In Time Kickstarts Its Way To Success!

A Hat in Time continues to make a name for itself as a colorful and unique throwback to the platforming genre that has largely been ignored outside of titles like Mario and Rayman. Treon's Realm has featured the game twice, both here and here, but the game's independent nature meant that it would take quite a while to develop without solid funding.

Fortunately, with the help of Kickstarter, we are finally going to see this wonderful game come to fruition. The development team was asking for $30,000 to complete the project and I'm happy to report that they have already gotten over $110,000 with 19 days to go thanks to some generous stretch goals. One of the most tantalizing stretch goals which is set at $150,000 will see Grant Kirkhope compose a song for the final game (Mr. Kirkhope is the famous RARE composer responsible for many classic soundtracks such as Banjo Kazooie and Perfect Dark). Currently the game is set to hit PC and Mac with a Wii U version planned but not yet 100% confirmed (the developer is working out the logistics of getting the game on Nintendo's HD console). Be sure to check out the campaign and donate if you like what you see as we need more creative games like this in an industry full of sequels and first person shooters. Enjoy!
