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.

What Skyrim Still Does BETTER Than Other Open World Games (Assassin's Creed Odyssey, The Witcher 3, Breath of the Wild)

Despite the constant cycle of re-releases, Skyrim is getting old by video game standards. Although revolutionary at the time, years of reflection have not been kind to this game. It's hard to play it now and not notice the stiff animations, copy-pasted quest lines, and of  course  all the bugs and quirks of the engine. But Skyrim paved the way for bigger, more ambitious open world games to come. In the years following games like The Witcher 3, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild took the idea of non-linear gameplay and expanded upon it immensely. Each of these games are masterpieces in their own right, and leave the Elder Scrolls franchise feeling more than a little dated.

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,"
