Something Big Is Coming For A Hat In Time Tomorrow


As you may already know, I'm a big fan of A Hat in Time—which is why I'm so hyped that they have a big announcement coming tomorrow!

This image was posted to Gears for Breakfast's official Twitter account a few days back. To me it teases a "Nintendo Direct" style livestream announcement. I'm sure it won't be as massive as Nintendo's live events—this is a small indie team, after all—but the hype is no less real for it.

The livestream will begin at 3pm EDT / 12pm PDT tomorrow, April 25th on their Twitch channel. Go follow them on Twitch to catch it live yourself. I will be tuned in, and posting my summary and thoughts shortly after the stream, so if you can't make it I'll be sure to update you on what went down.

As for what they could be announcing... it could be any number of things. A new DLC? A release date for the Switch port? Something really radical, like a sequel or a new game by Gears for Breakfast?

The biggest clues we have to go on is the image above and their recent marketing campaign centered around the hashtag #WhereIsHatKid.





This hashtag has been going for awhile, and it's unclear if it's meant to tease something new or is just a fun guessing game with the fans (although the announcement post also has #WhereIsHatKid, which makes me believe they could be related). Another interesting point is, in the announcement image, Hat Kid appears to be missing her hat!

So what is coming? We'll just have to wait. They did confirm that no, sadly it isn't an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (as epic as that would be). My guess is a new DLC announcement. They've already said there's going to be one more, and they recently talked about the Switch port, so if it was that they probably wouldn't make such a big deal out of it.

What do you think will be announced tomorrow? Are you hyped? Do you plan to watch the announcement live? Let me know in the comments section!

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…
