A little over five years ago, marks the start of free Hype template Tuesdays. It all started with a Coconut. I didn’t even realize that so much time had transpired. But after noticing that Groundhog Day falls on a Tuesday this year, I started getting nostalgic. I remembered the Groundhog template. Perhaps I should launch a new Hype Template?
Now that the 2020 edition of A Book About Hype was published, what to do about those templates? Well, initially, the plan was to stop creating them. Instead, energy was focused on the Widgets app. But after a recent visit to the Hype forums, it looks like detecting the device orientation was an issue. That’s an easy fix… right? That should be an easy template to make… right?!
Creating websites, it’s a strange profession. The Internet has matured to the point where people rarely get excited about a new website launch.

While working on A Book About Hype, this was a question I intended to answer.
Many years ago, back in the Guild Wars days, there used to be a cute jigsaw puzzle game on this website. Sadly, it was based in Flash — and Flash is dead. As time passed, I had forgotten about the game… both Guild Wars and the jigsaw puzzle. But with Hype 4’s new vector features, the jigsaw has returned. That’s what this weeks free Tumult Hype template is about. Hype is now powerful enough to create HTML5 based jigsaw puzzles.
