Humble Bundle, Inc. recently announced that, through its “Presented By Humble Bundle” initiative, it will be showcasing five games at Gamescom and PAX West. One of those games was a 3D platformer called A Hat in Time…

Hat in Time follows the adventures of As Hat Kid, a little girl who travels through time in order to defeat the evil Mustache Girl. Featuring large open worlds and colorful characters, it’s reminiscent of titles like Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie; apparently, the composer for Banjo-Kazooie, Grant Kirkhope, is producing music for the game.

The game looks like a fun time waiting to happen. That said, it may have some tough competition from Super Mario Odyssey. Gears for Breakfast (the developer) announced that their game will be released something this fall, same as Odyssey. And while it won’t be on the Nintendo Switch, I’d have to imagine that those looking for platforming goodness will be flocking to Mario.

Then again, one can never have too many platformers. Especially ones with magic hat powers.

A Hat in Time is coming to the Xbox One, PS4, and PC later this year, with a post-release multiplayer update adding cooperative play. Those of you looking to get your hands on the game early can do so at Gamescom and PAX West!
