Mid Year Roundup

July 2024 Edition

The first half of 2024 flew by in the blink of an eye, and we packed it full of milestones. From Hiber3D engine enhancements to strategic partnerships to innovative AI tools and a brand revamp, we left no stone unturned. 

Let’s take a look at the highlights…

Hiber3D Mid Year Roundup

PRODUCT INNOVATIONS

World Creator

Our text-to-3D world tool was made available to all users in January 2024, following a period in pre-alpha when over 10,000 early access members signed up for the opportunity to test and give feedback on the technology. With over 90 thousand prompts entered to date, this tool is democratizing 3D world-building, making it accessible to anyone. Try the World Creator today.

SkyScape AI 

Building on the success of the World Creator, we launched SkyScape AI, our image-to-3D world tool. Create virtual environments based on any image to push the boundaries of creation. Try SkyScape today.

SkyScape AI powered the Hiber3D engine.

NEW MILESTONES

Shooter and other Game Modes

We added shooting mechanics to the growing list of gameplay features included in the Hiber3D engine, i.e. driving, flying, platformers, obbys and customizable game rules. All of these are accessible right out of the box! This means less time spent hunting for third-party plugins, custom coding, and building foundations, and more time spent on creating incredible games and experiences.

HiBux In-App Currency Launch

We partnered with Stash to introduce our in-app currency HiBux within our web-first HiberWorld UGC platform. A significant milestone on the road to building out a thriving creator economy.

HiberLabs Tests with HDK

We put the Hiber3D Development Kit (HDK) to the test with our HiberLabs series – a collection of games spanning diverse genres. From Halloween thrillers, to Turbo Goal (vehicle football), hover car racers, snowboarders, the hugely popular Sumo Cars (vehicle wrestling), and an engaging side-scroller series, each of these games highlights the ease, speed, and flexibility of creating with the Hiber3D engine.

EVENTS AND PARTNERSHIPS

Google Next, Leap, Nordic Games

We traveled the globe over the past few months to showcase our Hiber3D engine to the worldwide tech community, most notably Dice Summit in Las Vegas, Leap in Riyadh, GDC in San Francisco, Google Next in Las Vegas to unveil SkyScape, and last but not least Nordic Game in Malmö. 

The Voice, Angry Birds

We launched two premium branded avatar catalogs in collaboration with Ready Player Me for the  iconic Angry Birds and The Voice IPs. These gamified brand spaces showcased exclusive purchasable wearables and have racked up almost 2M plays to date.

NEW BRANDING

Last but not least, this year marked a new chapter for Hiber3D with the launch of our new visual identity and website that reflects our commitment to innovation, creativity, and exploration. We hope you love the new look as much as we do!

Looking Ahead

The past six months have been a whirlwind of activity and progress, and we expect the next six to be nothing less. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve got cooking.
