The Hat Chooses the Wizard

By: Gwilym Inzani and Corwin Kuiper

‘The Hat Chooses the Wizard’ is a 2D platformer. This game was developed as an entry for the GMTK game jam 2021, with the theme “joined together”. The entire game, except for the music, was produced in just 48 hours.

In this game, you play as a wizard searching for his missing staff. However, the path to the staff is filled with dangerous obstacles and monsters. Luckily, you have a powerful magic hat that can be thrown and recalled, allowing you to fly towards it and reach otherwise inaccessible platforms.

With this unique mechanic, you can explore the game's levels and defeat enemies. The game's simple but challenging gameplay will put your platforming skills to the test as you try to reach the end.
