OUR GAME: KING OF THE HAT
King of the Hat is a 2D party platformer where you fight with a hat! Throw your hat to attack, defend and bait opponents. But watch out! If someone jumps on your hat... you die!

 

COME SAY HI
King of the Hat is heading to EVO, BitSummit Japan and Super Smash Con to throw its hat into the ring and put the word on the streets. “We have been trying to get this game out since early 2019, so finally being able to announce a launch date for Steam just makes us all want to shout it from a rooftop,” says Socrates Sotos, one of the developers at Hat Games. “You’ll see that excitement on our faces at the upcoming Hat showcases.”

 

TRY IT ON FOR SIZE
From August 5th to August 14th King of the Hat will have an exclusive Steam Demo ready for you to jump into. The demo gives people who just can’t wait the opportunity to play with a set cast of characters for a limited time.
