King of the Hat is 2-4 player 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!

In King of the Hat, your hat contains your soul. Crush your opponent’s hats (and souls) to assert your dominance over them.

When you throw your hat, it goes on fire and becomes invulnerable. You can use it to beat the devil out of other players or to defend against your opponents’ flaming hats.

Although the basic mechanics are easy to pick up and play, King of the Hat allows for deep, hat-tastic competitive play as a 2 player game.

Change the rules, add power ups and play around level hazards to create the hat-based madness you've always dreamed of.

Throw your hat into the ring with a growing community of over 8,000 hatters as Hat Games' unique brand of party platformer brawling madness bounces onto Steam next week!

King of the Hat, the fighting game that's too fast to cast, is hitting Steam Early Access on October 22nd! After 3 years of blood, sweat, tears and hat related injuries, Hat Games have completed the first phase of their plan for world domination; by creating a fast, frantic and fabulous 2D fighting game for 2-4 players, built for casual fans looking to fight their friends and family without sending them to the hospital, and competitive fighting game players looking for a lean new brawler to test their reflexes.

“Get a taste of this quirky new fighting game.” - One Angry Gamer

“There was a handful of characters to choose from in the demo, but I went with a sentient washing machine, that can't walk for shit.” - Destructoid

Hats on Tour

Before setting off on a promotional tour that took King of the Hat from EVO, to BitSummit Japan and Super Smash Con, developer Socrates Sotos expressed his excitement at the upcoming release; “We have been trying to get this game out since early 2019, so finally being able to launch on Steam just makes us all want to shout it from a rooftop...You’ll see that excitement on our faces at the upcoming Hat showcases.”

You’ve got to wear one hat the rest of your life, even while sleeping and showering and impressing your tinder dates. What you going with?
