Jack ‘N’ Hat is a retro-inspired 2D platformer starring Jack, the famous jack-of-all-trades mechanic on a mission to save Princess Riri from Dr. Save Voo Doom and bring peace to Ririland. But how did this happen? let’s find out
It all started in late 2017 when game developer Nick Stavridis finished his 9 months of military service and was unemployed and worried about the future at home… and that was the timing glitch case brought to life.
glitch case was a story about a failed game developer who rediscovers his favorite childhood game, becomes entangled in it and must help the game’s characters fight mysterious mishaps that are destroying their world.
It was an ambitious project and as time went on Nick realized he wouldn’t have the resources or time to bring the entire game vision to life. A difficult decision had to be made, so in February 2020, Nick decided to put it off and work on the game the protagonist is from glitch case
Designing the levels and bosses and working on the music were Nick’s favorite aspects of game development. Each boss fight lasted about two weeks, and each game level features a unique soundtrack. Every detail has been carefully thought out to create the perfect early 90’s gaming atmosphere.
Towards the end of 2020 the game was finally completed and picked up by 2Awesome Studio as publisher.
In the end we can say Jack ‘N’ Hat is the prequel…that came first! (but good thing George Lucas didn’t do the same). Get it on Xbox today!
