King of the Hat is a fast-paced, hat based, multiplayer game. In this cutesy dystopian world everyone is born with a hat that hosts their soul, and can only die if their hat gets crushed. Your hat can be used as a weapon BUT BE CAREFUL because its also your weakness. Jump around, whip your hat at your friends, crush theirs, and become the King of the Hat!

King of the Hat is a local-multiplayer game, where instead of jumping on people's heads you have to jump on their hats. The thing is, you can throw your hat!

You can throw your hat to ...

Avoid enemies who are about to jump on your head
Knock another player away and knock his hat towards you
Leave it as bait for your opponent
Distract your opponents while you go and crush their hat
Block an incoming hat throw
All these options lead to lots of different styles of matches!

Once upon a time in a far away land, there was a beautiful castle in a place called Hatlandia. Here, you were born with a sacred Hat, and if it ever got killed, the wearer would die. In Hatlandia, the Hatfolk lived peacefully. Occasionally a donkey would step on someones hat, twisting them out of existence forever. For the most part though, it was a pretty idyllic life …

However, Hatlandia was located right next to an even older city called Business Corp. And when the Fatcats over in Business Corp. heard about these Hatlandian festivities, they decided to check them out.

They showed up stinking of milk and catnip, and had such a time at the Hat Parade that they came back and killed the King. They captured the kingdom, bulldozed the Hatlandian Hills, and paved some parking lots.

The whole thing was actually in really bad taste, in this narrators humble opinion.

Now, they’ve built an arena and broadcast a show called King of the Hat, where the remaining Hatlandians have to fight each other for the entertainment of a live studio audience.
