A Hat in Time

A cute-as-heck retro platformer

A Hat in Time is a retro style 3D platformer in the vein of Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie. It was released in 2017 to much success and I feel very privileged to have worked on it.

I was approached in late 2012 by Jonas Kærlev (Who I had previously worked with on Team Fortress 2 modding). He came to me asking if I would be interested in helping out with a project he was working on. I was brought on-board as one of the first artists on the project.

I initially created the main character "Hat-Kid" based on concepts. I then went on to do another character (Mafia cook enemy) as well as some environment pieces & vehicles.

Below are some of the models I contributed to A Hat in Time throughout it's development. Some models here are very early in the projects life (Dec 2012), some a bit later.
