A Hat in Time’s creator shares his love for cute cynicism and extra
A Hat in Time is considered one of my favourite video games of final 12 months. Its gameplay mechanics enjoy absurdity and its writing contrasts cute-as-heck appearances with unapologetic cynicism to nice comedic impact. I’ve stated earlier than I felt like developer Gears for Breakfast made many choices round these simply to have enjoyable with A Hat in Time’s growth themselves…however a sense would not make a strong foundation for an article discussing a developer’s design philosophy. I imply, most individuals who need to know what a developer thinks would in all probability simply shoot an electronic mail to the developer’s enterprise inquiries, ask for an interview, and hit up Gears for Breakfast’s founder Jonas Kaerlev in a Discord name.
So I emailed Gears for Breakfast. Right here’s a transcript of my pleasant interview with Mr. Kaerlev! Oh, and in case you’re cautious of Nyakuza Metro + On-line Occasion DLC spoilers, there are none of these right here. I interviewed earlier than the DLC launched anyway.
