Steam Greenlight grows by 16 with Divekick, Deadly Premonition

Steam Greenlight's catalog of games and software is now bigger by 16 titles — 14 games and two pieces of software, Valve announced today. The new games that have garnered enough community votes and made it through Valve's vetting process include Iron Galaxy Studios' offbeat fighting game, Divekick (screenshot above); Plastic Piranha's proudly basic first-person shooter, Rekoil; and Swery65's quirky adventure, Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut.

A Hat in Time hopes to atone for the platforming sins of Donkey Kong 64

The collect-a-thon platformer genre is dead, Danish indie developer Jonas Kaerlev explained. His studio, Gears for Breakfast, a global collective of volunteers living in Denmark, the U.K., Australia and the U.S., is trying to revive it with A Hat in Time, the team's first project which has skyrocketed past its modest $30,000 Kickstarter goal.

Indie adventure A Hat in Time takes the cel-shaded graphical style of The Wind Waker and gameplay mechanics reminiscent of Banjo-Kazooie, as shown in a new gameplay video released by Danish developer Jonas Kærlev earlier this week. The game is inspired by retro 3D "collectathon" games like Conker's Bad Fur Day and Donkey Kong 64 among others, according to a post on the developer's project blog. Kærlev's game sets players in the shoes of Hat Kid, a little girl traveling through time across five different worlds. Hat Kid must rewrite in-game history and defeat her adversary, the wicked Moustache Girl. A Hat in Time includes platforming elements and Hat Kid is loaded with an arsenal of various gadgets including a hookshot and a "propella," an umbrella that helps Hat Kid travel. The...
