  1. Come get a deeper look at the Hytale Model Maker program that was used to create the game's assets and also comes with the game itself so you can make your own! ...You know, it's that program you saw briefly near the end of the announcement trailer.
  2. I'm aware it's been awhile, but Breach is now available to buy from Steam Early Access for $25! Of course, if the idea of paying for early access to a soon-to-be F2P game unsettles you, you're free to wait until summer, when the game is properly released.
  3. It's been a month since Hytale was first revealed to the world, and to celebrate, the team has put up a new blog post containing previews of two music tracks from composer Oscar Garvin, reflection upon how the announcement was extremely well-received, and an update to the FAQ. Here are the music tracks, if you can't use the link:

    How dare you, sir.
  5. The Sonic block for this year's AGDQ is about to begin! Sonic Mania Plus will be a bonus game if its incentive is met!

    Blizzard has released a short story starring Ana and 76:
  7. Welp, it's early January, and like clockwork, a new blog post is up. This one details the systems behind Hytale's world generation-- zones, caves, dungeons, prefabs, and more!

    Dragonball Z, the Abridged Series (and others)

    All that's left for Trunks is to return to his timeline and clean up the scraps. The epilogue to episode 60 is here:

    How much damage did Forces do?

    I don't really think it did all that much damage. Maybe vindicated those that have grown tired of how Sonic games operate nowadays a little more, but that's it. Certainly not '06-level damage.
  10. The Hytale team has posted a holiday blog article that has a video focusing on the improvements to weather and fog they've made since the announcement trailer. You can expect a series of articles that detail each of the game's features, starting in early January.
  11. Turns out there's one more episode:
  12. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait until Spider-Verse comes out on Blu-Ray, but glad y'all are enjoying it.

  13. Hytale is an upcoming block-based sandbox game from Hypixel Studios. The developer branched from a company that's actually quite familiar with block-based sandbox games, considering that company is Hypixel, Inc., the folks that run the most popular server in all of Minecraft (no, really, it's in the Guinness Book of World Records; look it up) and created all sorts of minigames for that server (which will still be maintained by Hypixel, Inc.). With a desire to go from modders to full-blown game devs and not be constricted by Minecraft's limits, a team of 40+ individuals split off and started working on Hytale in 2015, later getting investment from Riot Games (the League of Legends folks) and an "angel advisory group" that allowed them to establish Hypixel Studios in 2018 and crank up their production values. Hytale itself shares a lot with Minecraft, but it runs on its own custom-built engine, takes place in a fantasy world (the landscapes of which are procedurally generated, by the way), and incorporates deep RPG elements. Go on adventures alone or with friends in co-op. Uncover the world's history through handmade adventures. Build yourself a house and use the wild's resources to your benefit. Befriend and battle multiple NPCs and animals, each with their own behaviors and interactions. Fight through boss encounters and combat challenges and explore the land to find new and better loot. Nothing's out of the question. But that isn't the end of it-- Hypixel Studios continues the tradition of minigames by allowing you to play games old and new with others and gives you the tools to make your own. Players can also create their own servers. Character customization is also available, if you want to change up your look. The game's creative freedom doesn't end at block-placing or minigame creation, though. Hytale was made with the creative in mind and has extensive modding support with the devs' slate of tools available for you to mess around with, including a combination modelling/texturing/animating utility known as the Hytale Model Maker that lets you make your own items and creatures, and in-game scripting allows you to make changes to code and see the difference immediately. Cinematic tools are also available, allowing you to make your own Hytale machinima with the game's models; you can create custom animations and add particle effects at your leisure. In fact, the trailer above? All of that was made using a mix of the cinematic tools and in-game footage. Hytale has no release date or business model yet, but Hypixel Studios is working on meeting players' expectations while getting the game to them as quickly as possible. It's planned to come out on PC and Mac, and other platforms are being considered. A beta is planned for the future, and you can sign up for it and learn more info on the game's website. You can also keep up with news on Hytale's social media accounts (Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Instagram | Snapchat). The subreddit, forum, wiki, and Discord server are under construction, but this post will be updated when they're available. Have any questions? Read the FAQ.
  14. Let's hope he does. I actually don't mind this design too much.
  15. I will admit, what we've seen these past few days has been a bit... disconcerting for me. Seeing Sonic with such... weirdly human limbs isn't how I hoped he'd look. But despite all this, I'm still going to wait for a trailer before I drop this movie like a hot potato. While we know a lot about what the movie is going to be like, it doesn't get across how all of these ideas are executed. That said, I respect your opinions and understand where you're coming from with them.
