Anyone ever call you too controlling? Context matters! In the video game world, it’s really bad if you’re not controlling what’s going on. That’s the point of this week’s free Tumult Hype template. It shows how to add a 4-way controller to your game. It’s quite similar to the phenomenal Jump template, but this one has three distinct differences.
This is one of those things where it’s just easier to show than explain. Are you a human on Earth? Then you probably know about the day / night cycle. So, why don’t our websites know about this? Many websites operate like it’s 12:00 PM — all day, every day. What if your website could know the difference? What if your website could react to the time of the day? That’s the task for this week’s free Tumult Hype template.
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 to be 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. It seems best you can hope for is to keep the complaints to a minimum. The projects can be extremely expensive and time consuming too. Is Hype a better way to build a website? While working on A Book About Hype, this was a question I intended to answer.
