ANNOUNCEMENT: A Hat in Time coming to PS4 and XBOX ONE this Fall!
A Hat in Time is arriving on Windows, Mac... and now PS4 and XBOX One THIS FALL!
When we launched the A Hat in Time Kickstarter, we were incredibly stunned by the sheer volume of people interested in our little Hat Kid and her adventure. We had never anticipated that the game would hit home with so many people!
We only ever aimed for A Hat in Time to release on PC, as that's what we were familiar with. Prior to the Kickstarter, none of us had any experience developing for consoles, but it had always been an audience we wanted to bring A Hat in Time to. However, due to the lack of technical knowledge and resources, we were not able to make this a reality on our own.
However, thanks to the incredible people at Humble and Hardsuit Labs, A Hat in Time is coming to PS4 and XBOX One! While us at Gears for Breakfast continue to develop A Hat in Time independently and without outside influence, the generous team at Humble is publishing The PS4 and XBOX One version, while the skilled Hardsuit Labs is porting the entire engine. This would not have been something we would be able to do ourselves!
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will feature all features present in the PC release, and will receive the stretch goal updates as well!
Please enjoy the main theme for A Hat in Time, composed by Plasma3Music!
Additionally, please check out this tune for the Lava Cake Peak in Chapter 4: Alpine Skyline!
The Next Kickstarter Update & Release Info
The next Kickstarter update will arrive in a few weeks, and will be our last big update before A Hat in Time releases! We will be sharing the official release date then alongside a lot of other new info, so please stay tuned!
Update on Co-op
One of our stretch goals for the Kickstarter campaign is coop play. We've showcased this a few times (such as at PAX East and E3!). However, due to console certification requiring a lot of extra time if a title is multiplayer, we've decided to push co-op play to arrive later, so we can release A Hat in Time as soon as possible.
Co-op will arrive alongside our first FREE stretch-goal update, which will also introduce the first bonus chapter! We apologize for this slight inconvenience!
Slacker Backer option closed
As we said in a recent update, the option to become a slacker-backer has closed. Thank you so much to all of you who backed to be able to play the Beta Build! The Beta Build will continue to be available in your Steam accounts, but will not be available for purchase anymore.
You can still preorder A Hat in Time on our website!
