    After five years of development, the Kickstarted indie game, A Hat In Time will officially be launching on October 5th of this year. It'll be launching on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Development started in 2012, and a Kickstarter to fund the game was announced in 2013, where almost $300,000 was raised to create the game. Indie dev Gears For Breakfast's project is intended as very similar in scope and style to the Nintendo 64 era of 3D platformers, and even has Grant Kirkhope of Banjo-Kazooie fame helping compose some of the soundtrack. Also announced was that the game will have full mod support, and a level editor, allowing for players to add their own creations. "Official" mods will also be included at launch, consisting of two hats for the main character to wear, Raz's helmet from Psychonauts, and Lilac's headpiece from Freedom Planet, with other cosmetic options from other indie game characters to be added at a later date, like those from Hyper Light Drifter and Shovel Knight.

    For those that wish to change their pledge from PC to console, however, you can only have the option to buy a brand new key for $19.99, while still retaining your Steam key.

    Sweet. Loved the beta.
    I think I actually only ever purchased the Alpha+Beta, so I'll have to pay again for the full release.
    I'm not entirely sure though whether that key includes the final version, I'll have to ask them as the page with information is now gone.

    That may be a good thing in a way, for now at least, avoids the extra cost and time involved potentially being a detriment to the project.

    Inspired by N64 platformers, but not for release on Nintendo consoles. Good grief.

    Making a port for the Switch is a lot more difficult than making ports for the PS4/Xbox One.

    It's like if you're a small business only just making a profit off 3 brand new types of yogurt, and a few guys here and there suggest you make a dairy free version. You don't have that time/money to be wasting on a niche product that has a completely different structure to what you're used to.

    It kind of started with Super Meat Boy having all these characters, but is anyone else tired to indie games having cameos in indie games? The newest Rivals of Aether DLC with Ori makes me think this too as well.

    OVAH DEAH!
    Are you all that out of the know? The developers themselves said it would be on the Switch, they just couldn't get a dev kit in time. They will once they get one.

    Honestly, yeah. I remember this being a project years ago and forgot about it. I hope it plays well.
