* NiceHat: [[CaptainObvious Why yes.]] It's about 'em, you catch 'em, and you even [[WeirdCurrency spend]] 'em to help you catch more of them.

A sequel, ''Hatfall 2: Fedora the Explorer'' is [[https://youtu.be/QNB7jhxF9HY?t=2230 currently in the works]].


* AwesomeMusic: [[https://soundcloud.com/networkmusicensemble/this-gun-for-hire This Gun For Hire by the Sexy Swingin' Sisters]] is the music that plays during the entire time playing

Added DiffLines:

* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Surprisingly inverted; you spend hats to unlock alternate costumes for the ''other'' people / imps.

Added DiffLines:

* InterfaceScrew: The end result of pissing off the wizard. Either it starts raining blood (making you slide around), imps start spewing forth from the ground (making it extremely difficult to see what's going on), or an earthquake happens (making it harder to see where you are ''and'' jostling you slightly out of position whenever you stand still).
** The [[spoiler:insurance paperwork minigame]] adds this with each question; [[spoiler:as Yahtzee gets increasingly drunker, the answer checkboxes start swirling around and the pen gets increasingly harder to control]].

Added DiffLines:

* RainOfSomethingUnusual: Hats (and cars, TV's, and signposts).

Added DiffLines:

* LudicrousGibs: Catching something that isn't a hat (like a fridge, a TV, an anvil, or a car) results in being smashed into a flapjack.

Added DiffLines:

* GuiltBasedGaming: If you fail, the game roundly insults you.


* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: While played for laughs in the dating simulator minigame you are given three options Ask Hat-Chan on a date [[spoiler: if that option is chosen the player is given fifteen hats as compensation after Hat-Chan was motion sick at the funfair.]], Insult Hat-Chan [[spoiler: if she is insulted enough she will walk away and you are given the option to murder her and her entire family for thirty seven hats]] and [[RapeIsaSpecialKindofEvil Violate Hat-Chan immediately]] [[spoiler: if that option is chosen it reveals that the character is wearing her as a hat with the message [[YouBastard "as I thought you would"]] then giving the player only one hat.]]

* ForGreatJustice: Played for laughs. (I think.) The game's internal name is "Catch hats for great justice!"

* LimitedAnimation: The walk cycles are intentionally jerky, mirroring ''Zero Punctuation'''s lack of animation.
* MeaningfulName: "Rondo", amongst other things, means "brim [of a hat]" in Polish. [[spoiler: Fitting, considering it's the name of an eldritch god made out of hats]].



** Unlocking survival mode will cause a hunger and thirst meter to appear and go up with every stage you play, until you're forced to play a hunting mini-game, [[spoiler:only for it to take an unexpected direction when you shoot a bear in a suit and are forced to take control of his company...]]

*** And ''then'', [[spoiler:we cut to the narration sprawl from the start, which now has Yahtzee (at his desk) and a hat floating around. The goal here is to maneuver Yahtzee so that the hat "lands" on his head; or, in other words, it's [[RecycledINSPACE "Hatfall" IN ZERO-G]]]].

* ReadingTheStageDirectionsOutLoud: One of the messages after catching the hat is "'''DRAW DESK SPRITE [=/=] PLAY WIN SOUND'''"



* StylisticSuck: The walk cycles are intentionally jerky, mirroring ''Zero Punctuation'''s lack of animation.

Added DiffLines:

* ShadowOfImpendingDoom: Though more often than not it's just a hat.
