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 2 or more Hypes that combine with the parent Hype to create 1 joint experience. The Playlist must include the parent Hype to qualify.

In this category creators can focus on making a single new level for a Hype. Remixes should build upon and compliment the parent Hype and feel like they are part of the same game.
Finalists (x5) - $100
These Templates are easy to remix. No need to worry about the logic or gameplay mechanics. Just focus on visuals and level design.

These Hypes & Templates may not have been set-up for easy remixing but with a little experience with the editor these won’t be hard to work with.

These Hypes & Templates have probably not been set-up for easy remixing, some may even be pure spaghetti in the editor. With some patience and editor knowledge you may be able to bend these to your will.

Remixing is a new feature in HypeHype and game making that allows creators to open other games quickly in the editor and create their own version. This way you don't have to start from scratch and creators can collab to make something new and unique together!
Every game in HypeHype is remixed from something. Whether it’s another creator’s game, a prepared template or even an empty canvas, we all have to start somewhere.
No! HypeHype is free to use. Play, create & share, no fees required.
No need to sign up if you just want to play. But yes, a HypeHype profile is required to be able to make and publish games.

Great question! HypeHype Editor includes an asset library where you can find high-quality assets, models, sounds, add-ons and more for your Hype. Frogmind adds new assets frequently that creators can use in their creations.
If you can’t find what you are looking for you can request it in the editor chat. Simple type “Asset Request:” followed by whatever it is you’d like. We can’t promise we’ll make everything requested but we’ll do our best to fulfill as many asset requests as we can.
It is possible for creators with 3D modeling experience to submit 3D assets to HypeHype through the Asset Submission Process. Assets that pass the submission process will be available to all HypeHype creators in the asset library. Due to licensing and other restrictions it is not currently possible to submit sounds, music or 2D images to HypeHype.
