Craft Time: Make A Thanksgiving Day Chocobo Hat

It’s 4pm on Thanksgiving Day. You’re probably stuffed with turkey right now, or in the process of stuffing yourself with turkey, or still waiting to stuff yourself with turkey. (If you ate ham, get the hell out of here.) You know what that means? It’s time to make hats! Making turkey hats is an old Thanksgiving tradition. It’s not hard to see why; turkey hats combine two of our favorite things: food and fashion. Hats also make your head look bigger, which will convince people that your brain is huge. People who wear hats are often the life of the party. Need proof? Check out this picture of Spock. Boy what a boring guy. Now, what if we throw a hat on him? Instant party animal! You too can be this guy. But instead of making the traditional Turkey hat for Thanksgiving, why not make a hat using gaming’s first bird: the Chocobo. Read on to find out how. Making Chocobo hats is a fun family affair. It’s also practical. If that annual post-meal brawl breaks out, you’ll already be armed with scissors. Here’s what you’ll need to get started: Construction paper (all colors) Scissors Glue (edible) The unspoken disgust of your older cousins Kenny Loggin’s Top Gun Soundtrack Begin by cutting a piece of yellow paper into a large circle (don’t worry it can’t feel anything.) This is what a circle looks like: Next, cut out a beak and some eyes. Here is what you’re aiming for: If your uncle begins screaming about how his ex-wife wrecked his boat or your nephews start a backyard wrestling match in the living room, crank up Kenny Loggin’s "Danger Zone" and shut out the sound of smashing dishes. Next: putting it all together. Families can be hard. Is your mom screaming at you to take out the garbage? Is your Dad yelling at you, because he doesn’t want you to cut off all the cat’s hair? Is some old man complaining that you broke into his house and stole his war bonds? Ignore them. They don’t understand you. You’re an artist. You need those war bonds to make your Chocobo hat. It’s time to put the whole thing together. Glue your beak and eye to your circle and then affix the whole Chocobo head to another piece of paper (or war bond) and wrap it around your head. Feel free to add a few little extra details to your hat. Really make it your own. Add some extra tuffs off hair or a ruffled brow. If your Chocobo is filled with friendship and magic, add some glitter. If you’ve followed our instructions carefully, you should end up with something like this: *Results may vary There you have it. You are now free to experience the true joys of Thanksgiving. Throw away the unused scraps of paper (ignore their cries for mercy; they weren’t good enough to make the cut.) Now, go have some pie and hug your grandma – not only will she be freaked out by your new hat, she’ll won’t know what to make of this random affection. And remember, if you get bored later, you can always make Chocobo hats for your pets.

    Next Studios’ Award-Winning Game Biped Lands on Xbox One

    Biped is a colorful coop adventure set in an alternate universe where humans didn’t take over Earth. Instead, our world is an important waypoint for interstellar travelers. Players control Aku and Sila, two maintenance bots whose mission is to restore a series of navigational beacons after a galactic storm has hit the planet. You will have to explore, solve puzzles, and cooperate to bring Earth back online.

    The Journey of Biped So Far

    The game concept came out from the simple idea of playing a game character whose limbs controlled individually. But before coming to the scheme where creatures will be bipedal, developers tested a lot of other possible concepts. They had human-like creatures, frightening aliens that looked like an octopus, exotic animals with multiple legs, and many different designs to choose from.

    Biped

    However, it was becoming more and more evident with each try that the complexity of controls is not what is needed for a fun party game. It had to be something more straightforward, easier to use and understand so that players could immediately feel comfortable and have fun.

    After testing multiple concepts, developers settled on the cute little bots you see today. Our protagonists would have two independent legs, no arms, could manipulate objects, and slide carelessly on smooth surfaces.

    The idea worked: in a matter of months, Biped has received dozens of positive reviews by media and streamers and got over 1700 positive reviews on Steam only. We are incredibly proud of it.

    Xbox One Release

    Releasing Biped on Xbox One was our plan all along, and this idea was proven by a lot of requests we received from the community.

    Biped

    Ever since Biped’s development began, we envisioned an adventure in which cooperation was to be the key to success. The characters’ unique movement scheme, the quests, the puzzles, and all of the game environments actively promote collaboration. Of course, you can play by yourself, but Biped gives its best when enjoyed alongside fellow humans! We want everyone to get a copy of Biped, invite friends over, order a pizza, and have fun exploring the game we poured our hearts into making. We hope you’ll enjoy our world just as much as we loved putting it together.

    And if you do, let us know! You can always join our Discord to chat about Biped, share some funny moments the game is full of, or make new friends!
