Behind the Scenes

Adult Hat Kid


Early on in development, back when time travel was supposed to have a larger role in the story of A Hat in Time, an adult version of Hat Kid was intended to appear as a playable character. She would have been playable in certain parts of the game, taking over from her younger self. However, due to issues trying to make her work, combined with negative reception from playtesters, adult Hat Kid was scrapped.

In the alpha and beta builds of the game, adult Hat Kid appears in the game's ending, walking out of a bookstore called Time's End. The player can walk her around the snowy town, but she cannot jump, run or perform any other abilities. Her files can still be found in the game and refer to her as "Hat Adult".


Hat Kid is voiced by Apphia Yu.
