Publisher Humble Bundle and Developer Gears for Breakfast Launch Charming Indie Title Reminiscent of Beloved GameCube Classics on New Platforms Today

p>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (DECEMBER 6, 2017) - Humble Bundle, Inc. — digital retailer of games, ebooks, software and more, where customers can donate to charity through popular pay-what-you-want bundle promotions and now a leading multi-platform games publisher — is proud to announce today that the console versions of its 3D collect-a-thon platformer A Hat in Time are now available in North and South America and Europe. A Hat in Time is available for purchase today through digital storefronts for PlayStation 4 and XBox One. The console releases join the Windows PC and Mac versions of the game, which were immediately catapulted to top seller charts on Steam on release, fueled by nearly 3,000 overwhelmingly positive reviews from fans and media alike.

Developed by Gears for Breakfast, A Hat in Time is a true homage to the greatest 3D platformers and a love letter to the classic Nintendo GameCube. This charming adventure channels the spirit of beloved games such as Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie and Psychonauts. Grant Kirkhope, the composer for Banjo-Kazooie, is even on board as a co-composer for A Hat in Time. A Hat in Time also holds the honor of being one of the largest and most successful Kickstarter-funded indie 3D platformers, earning nearly 1000% of its original Kickstarter goal!

You play as Hat Kid, a tiny space-traveling girl with a lot of heart and a big top hat, as she travels the universe to protect its worlds from the evil Mustache Girl. Join her as she explores five incredibly diverse and giant open worlds, jumping and fighting her way through baddies, and unlocking sweet new hats with all-new abilities.

Key Features include:

 

  • Seven Worlds to Discover: Play through massive worlds Mafia Town, Subcon Forest, Battle of the Birds, Alpine Skyline and two free DLC worlds post-launch.
 
  • Exploration is Key: Every nook and cranny contains some type of goody to help you overcome new obstacles.
 
  • Pick on Someone Not Your Own Size: Hat Girl may be small, but she packs a punch! Defeat an eclectic cast of baddies to unlock goodies and fight giant bosses.
 
  • Yay Upgrades: Improve your weapon with new platforming moves and combat ability unlocks.
 
  • : Don’t tell the scouts, but badges actually give you special powers!
 
  • Put Some Pep in Your Step: Music composed by Pascal Michael Stiefel and co-composed by Grant Kirkhope, the composer for Banjo-Kazooie.
 

A Hat in Time is now available for digital purchase through the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 4, through XBox Live for XBox One and through the Humble Store and Steam for Windows PC and Mac for $29.99 USD.
