Darling, you moved! The picture is ruined! How could you?!

Unused Cutscene

A-Hat-in-Time-Cafe-Cutscene.png

A-Hat-in-Time-Cafe-Cutscene-Coatrack.png

An unused cutscene that would fit well as a post-credits cutscene. This area is part of the same map that contains Hat Kid's sleeping "The End" scene, after the credits. Changing the in-game lighting reveals that there is a rogue coat rack hiding just outside of the scene. The room design shows that this scene takes place within Mafia Town.

Unused Cinematics

Unused cinematics from the Alpha trailer remain in the game. Within Mafia Town, there are four unused cinematics called cine1, cine2, cine3 and cine4. To see them, open the developer console and enter enablecheats. Then write ce <cinematic name>, and the cinematic will play.

In Mafia Town HQ has two strange unused cinematics called Bird and rs. The cinematic named Bird transforms you into a rat. You can move and hit Hat Kid only if you are close to her. The other cinematic is in the kitchen. When it's played, the music stops and the camera zooms onto a mafia cook working on some food. The cinematic's description calls it "Rhythm Segment". It might have been an introductory cutscene to a rhythm-based minigame of some sort.

Unused Music

Beta File Select

A leftover from the Beta build of the game. It played on the title screen and file select screen.

Guard Caught Jingle

A variation of the jingle that plays upon selecting who the murderer is in the act "Murder on the Owl Express". Judging by the filename, it would have played upon being caught in the stealth segment.

Hub World Secret Pillow Hideout Variation Intro

A variation of the tune that plays every time you enter Hat Kid's Spaceship. As there's never an instance where the intro plays from within the pillow fort, this variation is unused.

Unused Diary Entries

Hat Kid's diary can be found in her bedroom by using the Ice Hat on the pile of pillows. Since both the Ice Hat and the first few Time Pieces are required to access this area, these diary entries are rendered inaccessible:

chapter1_tutorial_0 = So... I am stranded. A Mafia in an apron and suit knocked on my door, and decided to mess everything up.
chapter1_tutorial_1 = Apparently they're "Mafia Cooks". Why couldn't I have gotten stranded near a normal planet?

An entry for the prologue and Chapter 1, Act 1.

chapter1_barrelboss_0 = I'm not super sure what that was supposed to be? Some big loser stood around and threw barrels at me!
chatper1_barrelboss_1 = Some even had spikes on! Who has spiked barrels????

An entry for Chapter 1, Act 2.

chapter1_cannon_repair_1 = At least he had a [icon:timepiece][timepiece]Time Piece[/timepiece] I could take! How do they keep finding these things...

An entry for Chapter 1, Act 3. Note that the words "Time Piece" are rendered with an icon and colorization.

chapter1_boss_0 = No wonder these guys are so dumb if that's who they put in charge!
chapter1_boss_1 = I guess nobody is the boss now though... whoops.

An entry for Chapter 1, Act 4.

intro2 = Now... where to find some [icon:timepiece][timepiece]Time Pieces[/timepiece]?
snatcher0_sn = FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!
snatcher1_mu = Are you for real? This is so cliche.
snatcher2_sn = YOU STEPPED IN- I'm sorry, what now?

Unused Models

A-Hat-in-Time-Rough-Patch.png

An enemy named Rough Patch that was cut very early on. The Alpha build contained a mesh file for Rough Patch, but no textures. Everything was restored for the final game, including animations. This model does appear in-game, but as a sad, textureless, frozen victim of Queen Vanessa.


A-Hat-in-Time-Oldster.png

This NPC is internally named "Oldster", and was previously featured in Mafia Town's "She Came From Outer Space" act. Oldster was replaced with a goofy Mafia character. This model does appear in-game, but as a sad, textureless, frozen victim of Queen Vanessa. For posterity, the waistband on Oldster's undies says "Gears for Breakfast".


A-Hat-in-Time-Sandworm.png

An NPC named "sandworm", likely intended for "Sand 'n Sails". It's got a number of wares attached.


A-Hat-in-Time-Snatcher-Kid.png

The Snatcher version of Hat Kid still resides underneath the floor where it's meant to appear in Vanessa's Manor. This character was completely cut from the game.
