Hypixel Studios, the team behind the world’s largest mod server, announce their first standalone game: Hytale

December 13, 2018.Hypixel Studios has today announced Hytale, a blockgame built around three pillars: going on adventures in a procedurally-generated fantasy world, playing minigames with the community, and building and sharing mods and custom content using an accessible set of browser-based and in-game tools.

Founded by veterans of the Hypixel mod server (holder of four Guinness World Records including ‘most popular independent server for a videogame’), Hytale represents the culmination of the team’s desire to establish themselves as a fully-fledged game development studio.

Simon Collins-Laflamme, co-founder of Hypixel Studios, said:

“Hypixel started life as a handful of maps, and it’s amazing to see what it has grown into - a team of over forty developers, and a worldwide community of millions of players. Hytale means a lot to us, because it represents a huge step forward for both the team and our community. We’ve been pouring our time, effort, and ambition into Hytale in secret for several years - we can’t wait to finally share it with everybody.”

Key game features:

Adventure mode
  • An adventure mode spanning multiple procedurally-generated zones, each made up of multiple interrelated biomes and populated with hand-crafted encounters.
  • RPG-style combat and crafting available in both singleplayer and co-op, including dynamic boss encounters, rare loot, and sprawling dungeon crawls.
  • Freeform crafting and construction, animal taming, farming, and vehicles.

Multiplayer minigames
  • Community favorites return: reimagined versions of our most popular minigames.
  • Modular character customisation including thousands of cosmetic items.
  • A combat system built for multiplayer first.
  • Support for community-run servers.

Accessible tools
  • Refined block-based construction in both single and multiplayer, including a suite of tools that allow builders to 'paint' the world.
  • A scripting system that allows players to write and execute code in-game. Players and content creators can overhaul game logic and watch the world transform around them.
  • In-game cinematic tools designed to meet the needs of YouTubers and streamers.

Hytale Model Maker
  • A free browser-based 3D modelling, texturing and animation toolkit that runs on HTML5.
  • Edit existing content or create your own and import it directly into Hytale.
  • Hytale Model Maker users can share projects and work together in real time, allowing teams of creators to model, texture and animate their creations concurrently.

Creators of Hypixel, the world’s largest mod server, establish Hypixel Studios with support from Riot Games and an advisory group of industry veterans

December 13, 2018. The team behind the Hypixel server network, the world’s largest independent game server, has today announced the formation of Hypixel Studios - a new game development studio formed with support from Riot Games and an advisory group of investors.

Hypixel Studios has been established in order to pursue the team’s goal of transitioning from a community mod team into a fully-fledged game studio. The studio has also announced its first project, Hytale, which comprises a sandbox roleplaying game, a minigames platform, and a set of accessible tools that empower users to customize and create across all aspects of the game.

Development of Hytale began in 2015 and was initially supported by the success of the Hypixel mod server. Hypixel Studios was founded with support from an investor group including but not limited to:

  • Riot Games
  • Anthony Borquez, university professor and video game entrepreneur
  • Dennis Fong, entrepreneur and pro-gamer ‘Thresh’
  • Rob Pardo, veteran game designer
  • Peter Levin, interactive media entrepreneur and investor
  • Jeff Lo, serial investor
  • Min Kim, game industry veteran

Simon Collins-Laflamme, co-founder of Hypixel Studios, said:

“Founding Hypixel Studios is a huge step forward for our team, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Riot Games and our advisory group of investors. We feel very lucky to have built relationships that not only fund the development of Hytale, but provide us with insight and advice that will be instrumental in making Hytale as good as it possibly can be.”

Dylan Jadeja, President of Riot Games, said:

“Since meeting the Hypixel team in 2016, we’ve been blown away by their support for their community, vision for the future of sandbox gaming, and belief in individual contributors working toward a common goal. Their ambition and commitment to quality gives us a ton of confidence, and from everything we’ve seen of Hytale, we haven’t been let down. Supporting Hypixel Studios is also an opportunity to support a game that will reach players at multiple stages in

their gaming journeys, across age groups, genres, and play styles. We can’t wait to dive into the world of Hytale.”

Anthony Borquez, on behalf of the advisory group, said:

“My fellow investors and I are always looking to find next generation game studios and IP that continue to push video game genres forward. We’re fascinated by amazing games that are grown from modding communities and we believe that Hypixel Studios are building something special that will contribute to the growing and evolving video game industry.”
