For those of you who haven't heard, there is a game in development by the indie dev team Gears for Breakfast called A Hat In Time. The special nature of the game is that it is a 3D exploratory collect-a-thon type game much in the same vain as Banjo-Kazooie and Super Mario 64. What has me so excited and hopeful for this project however, is how far along the project appears already, before the dev team has received even a cent from their Kickstarter, which is currently 410% funded.
Insane I know, but they have tons of awesome stretch goals that they're planning if they keep getting more money, and they are. This is shaping up to be quite the popular indie title and I would personally love to see them reach all of their stretch goals. This game has the potential to be like an asteroid impact to the world of indie games if it gets the attention it deserves. Frankly, I've been hurting for the days of old when games were charming and genuinely fun to play and explore. For all I know, this could be a major return to form, at least at the indie level. Feel free to check the game out on their Kickstarter below and if you like it, come back here to gush about the nostalgia and whatnot.
