With the playlist feature in HypeHype, creators can combine multiple Hypes (games) to create a continued experience, like levels in a game or different rooms in a dungeon.
To qualify for this category creators have to publish 3 or more Hypes that combine to create 1 joint experience. Take advantage of the Playlist features to create something that couldn’t be done in a single Hype.
🏆 First Place - $700
🏅 Runners Up (x4) - $350
Creating a Playlist Help
Like to start creating from scratch? This one’s for you.
Only Hypes remixed from the blank template will be eligible for the Original Hype Prize. The only limits on Original Hypes are the Jam guidelines and your own imagination.
🏆 First Place - $600
🏅 Runners Up (x4) - $300
Creating a Hype Help
Any game in HypeHype can be remixed and every game is remixed from something.
This category is for creators who build upon another creation to make something new. In addition to the general judging criteria, Remixes will be compared against their parent Hype to see what was changed and how it impacts the experience.
Big changes aren’t always needed to make a big impact.
🏆 First Place - $400
🏅 Runners Up (x4) - $200
