A Hat in Time is a 2017 platformer game released by Gears for Breakfast for Mac, PC, PS4, Xbox One, and later Nintendo Switch. The game was a commercial success, selling over 50,000 copies in the first two weeks[1], and passing one million copies by December of 2018[2]. The game first began its development cycle on the 5th of August, 2012[3], and was finally released on October 5th, 2017. Between those two dates, the game saw nearly a dozen in-development preview builds released to the public and hundreds of videos and pictures. Many of these have been saved and recovered throughout the years. However, due to occasional slip ups, poor archiving, and a general lack of knowledge that archival was necessary until it was too late, many of these videos and builds have been theoretically lost to time. The aim of this article is to document all of the known videos and builds that have either been lost or recovered throughout the years and provide as much information as possible for each of them.

Videos[edit | edit source]

This is a compilation of every video that has been either found or known to have existed for A Hat in Time's development. Keep in mind that this list is still a work in progress, and may change often.

A Hat in Time showcased at SpilBar Copenhagen

Last week we had the opportunity to showcase the game at a local game event here in Denmark called SpilBar (can roughly be translated to "Game Bar"). It's a bi-monthly gathering of game developers from all over Scandinavia, coming together to learn and talk about games.

So, we put up a laptop and let people play A Hat in Time. This was the first real public showcase of the game, so we were very excited. Fortunately, people seemed to really like the game. We also received a lot of useful feedback for how to improve it, which we are grateful for.

Thanks to Anchel Labena (http://www.anchel.com/) and his camera work, we've been able to put together a small video from the event. Enjoy!

A Hat in Time - Rainy Mafia Town Found 31 Aug 2013 http://hatintime.com/preorder
Levels change throughout the game, and so does the mood. For this segment, we wanted to show Mafia Town in a more calm and soothing lighting. We believe that showing an environment from more angles makes them more "real" and relatable.
Please note that this is still a work-in-progress, and we are still trying to adjust the border between realism and cartoon-y.
