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!

High-Intensity Interval Writing; How to Write More in Less Time

I check the clock to see it's a little past 4 in the afternoon. For the most part, it's been a lazy day; woke up with some coffee, played with my kids, had a leisurely lunch break. My goal for the day was to crank out some writing on my new book, but I only spent about three and a half hour actually writing.

How much progress did I make? over 4,600 words. Nearly three times the daily number people shoot for during National Novel Writing Month, or what will someday be about 18 pages in the novel. It was a record-breaking number, yet it felt like I hardly worked at all. I threw all those words on paper without stressing, or pressure, or working long grueling hours. What I did that day was sustainable and repeatable, not a one-time fluke success.

What did I do that worked so well? I used the same principle I do with exercise.

No Longer "Pay What You Want," But Still Lots of Free Books

Wow, I haven't made a blog post since the launch of Mothman's Return? So much for keeping up with this! That being said, it's been nearly two months since the release of the latest Enoc Tales adventure, and I'm making a few adjustments to how I'll be getting these books out to as many people as possible.

First of all, I want to thank everyone who has read "Tale of the Mothman's Return!" The response for this book has been amazing! By now several people have finished it, and reviews are coming in—and boy are they positive! Here are a few things people have to say about it...
"What an exciting book! I couldn't put it down! Characters, scenes, details...all so clear! This author's knowledge of facts and events is so impressive! So colorful and magnetic...you will be glad you purchased this book! I love it! I can't wait for the next novel by Edison T. Crux!"
"I'm always a fan of Edison's work, and his latest book is no exc…

Exhausting Year At The Crux Home

I settled in to write this blog post, and suddenly banshee screams filled the house. I went to see what was wrong. Nothing. Nothing at all. Alex—my autistic 4 year-old son—was screaming his head off for no discernible reason. Sometimes he can talk, a little, but he much prefers constant screaming. So far I've tried everything I know of to help calm him down—made sure his tablet is working, gave him reassuring hugs, comforted him—but forty minutes later there's no sign of slowing down.

This is a pretty normal day for me now.
I know I've fallen off the face of the Earth again. My YouTube channel abruptly died, there's been no word from me on social media, and that book that's been "almost finished" for a year is in that same, stranded condition.

It hasn't exactly been a fun year, but it's time I explain what I've been up to (and—with any luck—what you can expect in the future)
What happened? About a year ago, things were going pretty good. My Y…
