When it comes to creating Hypes, games or any other interactive entertainment using the powerful Hype Editor, there are a few options for getting started.
Remixing can be the quickest and easiest way to get started with Hype Editor. It allows creators to focus on specific aspects of creating a playable game without having to build everything from scratch.
Remixing is great for new creators and game makers who are learning the Hype Editor tools or just want to put their own spin on the Hype they like. You can change the characters, music and sound, colors, environment, gameplay, or whatever you like!
Remix any existing Hype by tapping the Remix Icon on the Hype you like. You'll also be given the option to remix the last Hype you played when entering the Create Menu by tapping the Plus (+) Icon.
Once finished with the Remixing, just publish your Hype and it will be automatically linked back to the original Hype. A list of a Hype's Remixes or source Hype can be accessed by tapping the Thumbnail to the right of the Hype description.
When starting to Create a new Hype by tapping the Plus (+) Icon at the bottom of the screen, creators are given the option to choose a Hype template to start from. You can create your own games, levels, animations, stories, memes and anything you can imagine with the Hype Editor!
There are a variety of templates available that have some type of gameplay elements already set up like a drivable car or a character with movement controls. We add new templates regularly and you can request new ones in the Editor Chat.
In the editor creators can access a live Editor Chat. Use this chat to ask for help, discuss Hype creation, request new assets and templates, or just to chat with other creators.
This menu is where you can save your Hype and edit it's details.
Saving as draft will privately save your Hype to your profile. It will be accessible to your profile across devices, but will not be visible to other players until you decide to publish the Hype.
Publish makes your Hype "live" and playable for all HypeHype players. It will be publicly available on your profile and can also appear in searches and other player's For You feeds.

Check out the HypeHype Editor: Getting Started series of short video tutorials to learn the basics of using the HypeHype Editor.
Playlists allow you to create collections of Hypes. A playlist could be anything from a collection of your favorite Hypes to Hypes combined as levels to create a bigger game.
To create a playlist tap the + Icon in the lower left and select Create a Playlist.
You will first be prompted to give the playlist a Name & Description. These can be edited at any time. After giving your playlist a name and description press Add Hypes to, well, add Hypes.
On the Add Hypes menu you can add Hypes from your own collection of creations or search to add Hypes from other creators. Press the + on the right to add a Hype, a green check will appear next to added Hypes. Once you've selected all the Hypes for the playlist press the X in the upper left to return to the playlist editor. You can always come back and add more Hypes later.
In the Playlist editor menu you can reorder the Hypes by dragging from the list icon on the right.
Once your playlist is ready hit Save in the upper right. Like Hypes, a playlist can be saved as a draft, published publicly or unlisted. Draft and unlisted playlists will only be visible to you and those you share a direct link with.
Get even more details about Playlists in the Playlists Wiki Entry.
HypeJams are regular game jams, events or challenges handed out by Frogmind developers.
Participating in HypeJams is a great way to get familiar with the Editor and meet other creators. There's almost always a HypeJam running, check the HypeJam page for more information on participating!
Need some help learning the Editor? There is an Editor Help Wiki accessible at any time while working in the Editor. A complete overview of the Editor can be accessed by tapping the Help (?) Icon in the main editor UI.
Look for additional Question Mark (?) Icons throughout the Editor to access detailed entries on specific tools and features.
The official HypeHype Discord is a great place to get Editor help, give feedback and request new features, and hang out with other Hype creators, players and Frogmind devs.
