'Mr. Sun's Hatbox' Will Feature Co-op And PvP Game Modes, Demo Coming Next Week - Trailer

Mr. Sun's Hatbox is a slapstick, roguelite platformer about getting the job done at all costs.

When the dastardly Mr. Moon and his troublemakers steal poor Mr. Sun’s hatbox delivery, it’s up to you as an honorable courier to get that hat back! Upgrade your HQ, your team, and your tools so you can take on increasingly dangerous (and ridiculous) missions, wearing hats with amazing (or questionable) potential.

Starting out as a solo delivery squad, you’ll need to build up an organization of reformed hat thieves and work together as a team or against each other to beat the odds. Whether you’re sending your unit out on covert or chaotic missions, you’ll make use of a closetful of stylish headgear and an assortment of weapons to track down and return the stolen package to its rightful owner.

Whether you opt for careful stealth or charge into combat guns blazing, you’ll make use of a closetful of diverse headgear and weapons to return the stolen package to its rightful owner.

As showcased in today’s latest gameplay trailer, each mission of the main story campaign can be played solo or by teaming up with a friend in co-op via local multiplayer (controllers required for local multiplayer) or Steam Remote Play Together. Players can also face off in head-to-head battles! Jump into the arena with swords, guns, stale baguettes and more in 1v1 or Last One Standing PvP modes.

Fans will have their first opportunity to experience these modes, as well as even more of the main story campaign, with the new Mr. Sun’s Hatbox demo, coming February 6 as part of Steam Next Fest.

Key Features:

  • Start small and build up a crew to take down the mischievous Mr. Moon and his cronies across a challenging variety of action-platformer missions.
  • Grow your base of operations to fuel even more daring feats. Build a brig to brainwash captives, a lab to experiment on your staff, and a black market to purchase illicit contraband.
  • Eliminate Mr. Moon’s minions, or capture them for your cause! Recruit a team of ex-crooks with an array of unique traits to use on future missions.
  • Collect over 50 hats with special properties, including Dynamite Headbands, Cardboard Boxes, Noise-Canceling Earphones and Jet Packs! Choose the best hats to complement your play style.
  • Play each mission solo or with a friend in co-op, then duke it out in 1v1 and Last One Standing PVP modes
  • Colorfully vibrant retro pixel art design from Mr. Kenny Sun, creator of visually stylish experiences like Circa Infinity and Yankai’s Peak.

Mr. Sun's Hatbox is coming to PC (Steam).
