Introducing Community-Made Curated Items for the upcoming DLC 2

A few months ago we hosted our very first modding competition, and it was a great success! This competition gave us the opportunity to bring some community made mods into the game officially, and show off some of your amazing work to the players. We at Gears for Breakfast have been looking for more opportunities to add mods to the game officially. Competitions are often a large undertaking, and we can't hold them as often as we would like. That is why we are going to be piloting a Curated Item selection program for inclusion of community made mods in DLC 2!

Coming with the next editor update, you will have the option to publish your mod as a Curated Item. Items posted in the Curated Items Workshop won't be immediately usable in the A Hat in Time. Instead, the developers will be looking to the community to rate up items they would most like to see made available within A Hat in Time, via official DLC inclusion (as was done with Seal the Deal). Ultimately, the developers will choose which items to select and add to A Hat in Time. Additionally, creators of officially accepted mods will be compensated for their work!

We want to reassure everyone that this WILL NOT take away the mods that are in the workshop now, and if you prefer to post your mods in the general workshop you are still able to. Furthermore, if you have a mod that you have already made public and would like it to be considered, you are still able to submit it. However, please keep in mind that for items that have already been made public, there is a reduced chance of inclusion in this program, as we're primarily interested in new content no one has experienced yet.(edited)

Our hopes for this program is to be able to bring more of your creations to the game. This will be a pilot, so we will be testing to make sure it is a good fit for both A Hat in Time and, more importantly, the community. If it isn't, it will be removed or reworked to be a better fit.

We are very excited to bring this to you and we can't wait to share more details very soon! Please leave any questions you have in the comments below so we can be sure to address as many as possible in upcoming announcements!

About This Game

A Hat in Time is a cute-as-heck 3D platformer featuring a little girl who stitches hats for wicked powers.

A little girl and her spaceship

In A Hat in Time you play as a tiny space-travelling girl with a big tophat. Her adventure is halted when all her fuel, the Time Pieces, is lost and scattered across a nearby planet. Hat Kid must now jump, fight and stitch new hats to make her way into every nook and cranny of this new world in order to restore her fuel and resume her journey. On her way, she'll bump into the menacing Mafia of Cooks, the goofy birds of Dead Bird Studio, the spooky shadows of Subcon Forest, and more!

Murder on a train! Parades! Trespassing in a movie studio?

Every mission in A Hat in Time is unique! At one moment you'll be solving the Murder on the Owl Express by finding clues and interrogating the locals, the next moment you'll be the band marshal in The Big Parade, or sneaking through the bird-run Dead Bird Studio!

Small child, giant worlds

Jump freely around in 5 massive worlds with new adventures to discover around every corner! Just like any child, Hat Kid loves to climb and explore, no mountain is too big for her sense of adventure. She can do multiple jump moves, as well as climb walls, and swing over gaps!

Cute hats, magical yarn and snappy badges

By finding and collecting rare magical yarn, Hat Kid can stitch new cute hats with a variety of abilities, including a witch hat that allows her to cook explosive concoctions, and a wooden ghost mask that allows her to peek into other dimensions. Hats can become even more powerful, by attaching badges that are found, sold and traded by the locals!

Community-funded, community-focused

A Hat in Time was successfully funded on Kickstarter, reaching nearly 10 times its goal! In order to celebrate our community, A Hat in Time is releasing with full modding and Steam Workshop support, an in-game screenshot mode, and more!
