Well now, someone recommended this game to me and I'm massively happy that they did! What a wonderfully whimsical experience this was!
Taking some cues from those side-scrolling wonders Limbo, Pinstripe and Once Upon a Coma and throwing in some extra surprise elements (like a magical teleporting hat), this adds some nice spice to the realm of old-school 2D platforming games.
Playing as a mysterious girl who may or may not be part-bunny, you use your aforementioned hat to make your way across a landscape rife with deadly pitfalls, deadly creatures and deadly everything else you can imagine!
Some of the trials ahead are pretty difficult to overcome, but once you finally make that seemingly impossible jump the satisfaction is overwhelming.
Still though, prepare for some anger and hair-tugging, because this game pulls no punches! As soon as you learn a new trick you have to get used to it pretty sharp or you'll find yourself tumbling to your death over and over again, and having to listen to our poor protagonist's screams can get to be too much after the millionth time!
What we're doing in this world isn't clear, but what is certain is that we have to get out of here! So I highly recommend you strap yourself in and give this game a whirl, because it's beautifully put together!
As for the smarty-pants peeps at Not A Number, keep up the awesome work, I really hope you hit that Kickstarter funding total and that we can one day play the full version of Out of the Hat, because the world needs it and you totally deserve the recognition! =)
