A Hat In Time is coming to Nintendo Switch—with DLC and co-op!



Fantastic news for Switch owners. A Hat in Time, an indie "Mario-like" 3D platformer (which, in my opinion, gives the plumber a run for his money) has been "on its way" to the Nintendo Switch for some time now. However, we've had no release date, and few updates from the team at Gears for Breakfast.

But now there's something to be excited about. It's just been revealed that the Switch port is getting the local co-op mode (which was added to the PC version as a post-release update), as well as the Seal the Deal DLC!



Although there's still no release date, I'm really pumped for this. Seal the Deal was a lot of fun and incredibly charming, but the real treat here is the co-op. In my previous post discussing A Hat in Time, I sang praises for how good the multiplayer mode is—a second player can hop in anytime, and is a fully playable character (unlike Cappy in Mario Odyssey).

I wasn't sure if we'd see this on the Switch, however. It's a no-compromise split-screen local co-op, which can be demanding of system resources (something the Switch doesn't have a lot to spare). That being said, local multiplayer will be amazing for the Switch, and the Nintendo audience is going to adore playing this game with a friend.

Are you going to pick up A Hat in Time when it comes out for the Switch? Have you played it before on a different platform? Let's discuss it in the comments below!

10 Reasons Why A Hat In Time Is Better Than Mario Odyssey

Don't get me wrong—I love Super Mario Odyssey. There's no denying the level of polish and care put into that game, and it truly is the best Mario game in years.

It's just that there's this little indie game that's better.

Why Do I Suddenly Hate Minecraft?

I have a long history with Minecraft. My introduction to the game was also my first time playing or discussing games over the internet. It's no exaggeration to say Minecraft changed the trajectory of my life, and over the years I've clocked in countless hours in that blocky world.

So... why can I suddenly not stand it?
Why Minecraft Is Amazing First, let's discuss all the things I love about the game. The thing that's always stood out to me with Minecraft is how creative it is. Not that the game is creative—it presents a fairly generic world with a few clever designs peppered in—but that the game allows for player creativity.
Arguably, the whole point of Minecraft is expression. You are given a limitless world and a vast palette of materials to turn this "generic" world into something of your creation. Once while pondering Minecraft, I realized how much it captures the deeply human desire to make a mark on the world. Here you are, dropped into a natural worl…

I have boxes full of signed books to giveaway FREE!

So a little backstory here.

I self-publish all of my books through Amazon, and my books are printed-on-demand to keep overhead costs down and prevent me from needing a huge stock of books on hand. Works out great, overall I like it—but I didn't always do print-on-demand.

When Tale of the Wisconsin Werewolf first launched, I went directly to a printer and had a bunch of copies made up ahead of time. This didn't end up as the most efficient way for me going forward, and the formatting on those first prints aren't as professional as they are now, but it was a start.

Anyway, I thought all that old stock was gone by now—but I just stumbled upon two full boxes of them!

So here's the thing... I don't really want to keep this much stock around, and it's harder than its worth to sell them separately on Amazon. Which means it's time for some really awesome giveaways!

I hereby decree all Wednesdays in the near future to be "Werewolf Wednesday," and I will b…
