Hello Hypatians!

Check it out! a shiny new trading table in Centrum!
Finally solved the wobble (hopefully permanently!) in VR.
Mic sensitivity was turned way down on accident, so the game didn't think you were talking when you actually were.
All photos should now be pickup-able in Mouse and Keyboard.
3D art submissions fixed!
Packed down the ground in Sprite Park so it stops moving all around you.
Adjust some auto-spawning objects to avoid ghosts and de-sync (hopefully).
Other small quality-of-life improvements.

Hello Hypatians!

Update 1.15 is out now! We've done several updates in a row now, so lets take a moment to go over all the things that have changed in the last few updates!

We fully support Mouse and Keyboard play! Hypata is a VR first title, which means that some features may require the manual dexterity of VR in order to get the most out of them, but that is no reason to miss out on all the other features of Hypatia, or to not be able to play with your friends!

So we've opened up Hypatia to all Steam users, regardless of having a VR headset or not. In order to do so, we've made a number of features more nonVR friendly, and added a HUD to display all the info you'll need, as well as helpful control reminders! Let us know what you think about these changes, we're always looking to improve it more.

VR users, don't worry! We haven't removed or changed any part from your experience to accommodate our new nonVR users, we just added some accessibility options to those without VR to simplify the controls.

We now support Windows Mixed Reality headsets! We're always excited to support the latest hardware, and bring Hypatia to as many people as we can.

Building your own property is one of the coolest parts of Hypatia! You can purchase a space using the in game currency, and then decorate it just the way you want, changing wallpapers, buying furniture, etc! There is personal property, where only you and people you invite can visit, and there are public property that you can decorate for anyone to come see!

We've recently added another purchasable hotel room, and made some updates to the commercial property, and the apartment to add some more space to both!

Missed the Lunar New Year event? That's okay! While the Spirit Hunt is no longer active, we've left the area open for exploration, and who knows what we'll put in there next!

Finally, in this latest update, we added in new magic items - potions, orbs, and staves! These fun consumable items are awarded from the daily login boxes, and provide things like speed boosts, extra bits (one of our in game currencies), or experience!

This new reward box will be awarded every day you login, and unlike previous temporary boxes, this box is not part of a timed event, and will continue to exist into the foreseeable future!

Hello Hypatians!

That's right, the long awaited property update is here! Find a place to call your own in Centrum, or Centrum South, but act fast as there are a limited number of spaces available!

Once you own a space, you can customize it to build your own unique level for everyone to check out! All of the new properties, with the exception of the Hotel rooms, can be purchased only once. That's right, that door across from the Creative Studio could belong to you and only you! But only if you get there first!

Don't forget to stop by Centrum South to check out the brand new HY-KEA store to buy yourself some furniture to decorate with - we've added over 150 new items in this store alone! In the spirit of shopping, the Mango Shopping Mall has also had its displays completely updated for 2019! Come check out all the newest items and avatars on display!
