Time is falling apart and it is the job of the brave interstellar-travelling solo Hat Kid to collect all the time pieces and put them back together! But watch out, you're in a race against the evil Mustache Girl, who wants to use time for evil!

The game mashes the best of Nintendo 64 platforming and gives it a modern twist! Not only can you navigate terrain using your own abilities, but you are provided with your trusty umbrella, which can be upgraded to provide a wide range of abilities!

A Hat in Time is split up into five story segments, 'chapters', and each chapter is split into several missions, 'acts'. The chapters differ greatly, ranging from big cities to spooky forests, vast deserts, and even the moon!

In chapter 1 'Down with the Mafia', Hat Kid crash lands on a mountain containing a huge city, entirely infested by the Mafia of Cooks! Hat Kid will have to both defeat the Mafia of Cooks and save the city from drowning in super hot lava, all this while keeping Mustache Girl at bay!

In chapter 2 'The Subcon Forest', Hat Kid is on a mission to save the gloomy Subcon Forest! But it won't be easy, The Snatcher will be stealing your stuff, the Moonjumper will be mind-controlling everyone around you and Timmy will be getting in your way as he takes control of his living haunted manor!
