Title: Transcript – Hytale Development Update

My name is Kodiak, and this is Legacy Gaming. Today, we’re going to dive back into one of our most anticipated future games, Hytale.

[Background Information]
Hytale is a game we’ve been covering on this channel since the very beginning. It’s the game that brought Libid and myself together and the reason this channel exists. We are passionate about covering Hytale because we believe in its potential.

[Engine Development and Playtest]
In a recent blog post, the Hytale team shared updates on what has been happening behind the scenes. They have been working on redevelopment of Hytale’s tech fundamentals and creating a new custom engine to support the game. This year, the team brought the engine development in-house and expanded their team. They also had their first external playtest, which is a positive step forward.

[Moving to the New Engine]
The new engine has many capabilities, and the team’s goal right now is to replicate systems from the old engine and implement them into the new one. They plan to share a side-by-side comparison to show the transformation from the old engine to the new one. However, they’re still using the legacy engine to develop, test, and improve the Hytale experiences.

[Building for Scale]
Hytale is being built with scalability in mind. The team is aware of the importance of the game’s experience not being limited by the engine. They want to ensure they get things right from the start.

[Expanding Factions and Cultures]
The Hytale team is working on expanding existing factions and cultures within the game. John Hendricks, the game director, talks about the Kweebecs in particular. They have redesigned the Tree Singers, which are the tale-tellers and leaders of the Kweebecs. The team explored new designs for the Tree Singers and created a larger, visually unique character that adds depth to the faction.

[Interactions and New Materials]
The exploration of existing NPCs led to a new way of thinking about how Kweebecs interact with the world. One artist suggested using music to encourage plants to grow in helpful shapes, resulting in the creation of a new material called Sungwood. This material is now part of the Kweebec design, including clothing, weapons, and redesigned villages.

[The Capital Hub]
The Capital is the hub where all players can come together, make friends, share experiences, compete in mini-games, and more. It will be a central location for various activities. The team has been focusing on this hub throughout 2023, although they’re not ready to reveal it yet.

[Future Plans]
While it’s unclear when Hytale will be released, John mentions that in 2024, the team will ramp up external playtesting efforts to collect feedback on adventure experiences, creator tools, and social/competitive play. These steps are vital before the game enters full production.

Based on the current progress, a real Hytale experience still seems years away. However, taking the time to ensure a polished and complete game is released is appreciated. The Legacy Gaming team is excited to talk about Hytale again on the channel. They encourage viewers to share their thoughts on the game’s development and are curious to hear about the Kweebec evolution. Thank you for watching, and play on!
